The StoryBehind

Tile & Stone

Consulting

 

After graduating with a B.S. in Business Management, Kent Klaser immediately went to work full time for Klaser Tile Co., Inc. in 1996. He began in the field as a helper, worked up through the years from tile setter to job foreman, transitioned into the office in the year 2000 and began all estimating. Project management came next and before he knew it was promoted to V.P.- Operations. He personally performed all of Klaser Tile’s marketing, sales, estimating and managed all projects from bid time to completion. He ordered all materials, coordinated all labor required, and worked with the field superintendent managing the installation process while always insuring quality.

 

In July 2015, Kent Klaser started Klaser Consulting, Inc. His consulting goal is to share his knowledge and experience of the ceramic tile and stone industry that he gained over 21 years at Klaser Tile Co., Inc. He started the consulting business on the belief that all tile and stone installations can and should be installed correctly the first time.
