What new things are happening in your business? Wausau Tile, established in 1953, is celebrating 60 years in business. Ed Creske, founder of Wausau Tile, once said, "There are four key elements to any type of business: quality, service, common sense and loyal employees." A true success story: From a terrazzo contractor's hard work and dreams evolved a thriving business, occupying 450,000 square feet and employing more than 340 people. Today, with his son Bill and the entire Creske family, Wausau Tile has risen to the forefront of manufacturing in the concrete and terrazzo industry, shipping worldwide the most unique and diverse products imaginable.
