Schluter's Dale Kempster Named NTCA Tile Person of the Year
Orlando, FL, April 12, 2019-Dale Kempster of Schluter Systems has been recognized as the NTCA Tile Person of The Year.
This award is given annually to a contractor, distributor or manufacturer member who has demonstrated a strong commitment to the tile industry and has supported the mission and goals of the National Tile Contractors Association.
Kempster has also been instrumental in bringing NTCA and TTMAC (Terrazzo, Tile, Marble Association of Canada) representatives together to collaborate on the development of a Canadian version of the NTCA Reference Manual.
