We recently spoke with installation industry executive Greg Gelston, who has been tapped to lead the building of Profilitec’s brand presence in North America. The company’s wide range of tile installation systems includes floor, wall, movement, step tread and baseboard profiles, along with tile pedestal, anti-lippage, shower and uncoupling systems. The company also offers a complete line of profiles for luxury vinyl tile, laminate, hardwood, engineered wood and carpet.
A: My family has been involved in almost every facet of the tile and stone trade since the early 1960s; I’ve personally been involved since age 19 working in the family tile shop/contracting company. In 1993, I became one of Schluter-Systems’ first employees when it was only a small and unknown player in the industry.
