Ceramic Trinidad Ltd, Trinidad.
Founded in 1969, Ceramic Trinidad Limited (CTL) is the largest manufacturer of ceramic tiles in the Caribbean. For over 40 years we have been manufacturing a wide range of high quality 6″x6″ (15mm x 15mm), 8″x8″ (20mm x 20mm) and 6”x8” (15mm x 20mm), floor and wall tiles predominantly for bathroom and kitchen applications. As a manufacturer, CTL has been applauded by international tile agencies for the quality of tile being produced, and hence are accredited by the Ceramic Tile Distributors Association (CTDA). Ceramic Trinidad is proud to be a pioneer in developing a range of ceramic tiles which supplies both the local and CARICOM markets.
Traditionally CTL was strictly a manufacturer of ceramic tiles, not importing tiles until 1993. To keep up with worldwide market trends, Ceramic Trinidad also imports a large range of ceramic, porcelain and clay tiles from around the world, including the leading factories from Italy, Spain, Brazil, China and Mexico. CTL uses its 40 yrs of manufacturing experience, to heavily scrutinize the factories it represents, to ensure that the products we supply are of the best quality possible. As a result, our customers can be sure that when dealing with us, they are indirectly dealing with some of the most reputable factories in Italy, Spain, Portugal & Brazil.
To complement our wide range of tiles, in 1990 CTL partnered with MAPEI, the world’s leading supplier of installation materials and concrete restoration products. As a MAPEI distributor, CTL offers a vast range of products for all your tiling needs including top quality installation adhesives, tools and accessories for every application. From laying ceramic tile on concrete, to laying porcelain tile on wood, metal or walls, we supply the correct installation adhesives for the job. Apart from the ‘basic’ installation products, CTL also offers all of MAPEI’s specialty products which include (but not limited to) moisture barriers, crack suppressant systems, crack repair/patching compounds, self leveling underlayment systems, sound proofing systems, fast setting mortars, large format mortars, epoxy grouts and much more.
Superior Concrete Products:
In 1992, CTL expanded its product line by setting up a concrete batching plant to produce concrete wall facings and floor tiles. These products sometimes referred to as ‘manufactured stone’, realistically mimic natural quarried stone of various types. These products are produced with integral color and are also sometimes tinted on the surface if necessary to fit the customer’s needs.
With over 10 different types of stone and the ability to custom produce these products in any color, these products can transform any ordinary wall or floor, into a truly realistic rendition of hand sewn natural stone.
In 2010 CTL further expanded its concrete division by becoming the sole licensed manufacturer for Superior Concrete Products throughout the region. These products are concrete pre-cast perimeter walls that come finished on both sides with realistic stone and wood looks.
They are made from 5000psi concrete using integral color and are reinforced with rebar and galvanized wire mesh. Apart from achieving an unequalled aesthetic finish, this system can be installed in half the time of using traditional concrete or clay blocks which then has to be plastered and painted.
Since 2003, Ceramic Trinidad Limited has been supplying quality kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, in order to improve the value of our relationship with our customers.
The full turn-key service offered includes professional kitchen design, project management and installation, so that we can ensure that the kitchen is correctly designed and properly installed.
One of our trained designers will visit the site to take accurate measurements and then produce a package that includes incredibly realistic color 3D renderings, overhead layouts and elevations of the kitchen area, which can then be tweaked and re-designed as often as required to fit the customer’s requirements.
We are extremely proud to be the exclusive authorized dealers for two of the best semi-custom cabinetry lines available worldwide, namely, Kraftmaid Cabinetry manufactured in the US and Aran Cucine manufactured in Italy.
