  On December 1st, Hamilton Tile in the Atlanta area joined the National Tile Contractors Association. Owner Ben Santos is one of over 200 new members the NTCA welcomed in 2016. As it so happens, he also officially became the 1300th member in good standing upon joining. As the year comes to a close, the NTCA Membership Committee is actively laying out plans to reach 1500 members by 2018, and is also working on programs and services to provide increased value for this investment.

According to Santos, joining the growing association was not a difficult decision. "Being part of a reputable organization like the NTCA offers us instant credibility with our potential customers. In a trade with so many options of contractors, some qualified and many not, the NTCA offers standardization which is very valuable to us. It seems today that anyone can pick up a trowel and call themselves a 'tile-guy'. The NTCA helps us differentiate ourselves from that crowd.”

Another reason Hamilton Tile joined NTCA was to take advantage of the newly created NTCA University. "The courses that you offer really excite me.” said Santos. "We're constantly trying to improve our trade skills and your courses offer us an opportunity to do so. Being a member will also give us a chance to network with other passionate tile professionals. It is a huge benefit to our company being one of your 1300 members and as the saying goes, "There is strength in numbers!”

As a growing contractor in the hot building market of Atlanta, Santos urges people to keep an eye out for all of their latest thoughts and activities on their website,
