New Packaging: Same Great Product, Bold New Look!
New packaging starts rolling out in 2023!
For more than a year, LATICRETE has been gathering feedback and information from those who matter most, our customers.
The question: how is our audience changing, and how do they shop for and select the installation products for their projects?
What we learned is it is not just the commercial pros seeking high-end results. A new generation of bucket and trowel installers, DIYers, and residential contractors is changing the landscape of our industry, and our products needed to evolve with the times.
What resulted is one of the biggest “makeovers” for LATICRETE® products in years.
- A globally consistent look making LATICRETE products more easily recognizable in any language
- New, more durable bags
- Full color prints with brighter colors
- Less text with more images and icons to differentiate products and aid in the installation process
- The information customers need, front and center in a new easy-to-read vertical layout
We’ve invested in these changes to make it easier for our customers to select the right products to build innovative and iconic projects with the level of quality and trust they’ve come to expect from LATICRETE.
Rooted in innovation, growing for excellence. It’s our brand promise to you. We are excited for you to see the changes we made as they begin to rollout in February of 2023, and we hope you will continue to rely on LATICRETE for decades to come.
