Milestone Anniversary for Creative Materials Corporation

ALBANY, NY – Creative Materials Corporation, a national distributor of porcelain tile, brick, stone and paver products to commercial building projects, today announced that the company is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Since its start in 1993, Creative Materials has continuously built upon their foundational vision of going far beyond merely supplying building materials and has developed unique methods bringing valuable improvements to the retail and commercial building design and construction industry.

To commemorate this milestone, Creative Materials Corporation launched its new porcelain tile website earlier this year which highlights its unique process of combining both manufacturing and distribution to large national retail and restaurant chains. The website includes a short video showcasing the Creative Materials process in motion.

“Our company actually insists on obtaining a ‘win-win’ deal with every client. We just don’t feel that we’ve completed what we set out to accomplish unless both our clients and ourselves benefit from doing business together,” said Donald J. Kellish, president of Creative Materials Corporation. “Our corporate focus on this simple philosophy of putting clients first has greatly contributed to our fast growth and is setting the stage for a continuation of success.”

Providing customers with expansive product knowledge complemented by logistics and customer service expertise, Creative Materials Corporation:

  • Focuses on large national procurement and supply programs
  • Lowers client costs substantially, on every project
  • Provides the largest selection of ceramic tile in the U.S.
  • Delivers on time, every time through a developed national supply chain infrastructure

Through hard work and dedication, Creative Materials Corporation has succeeded in winning many tile supply contracts for major regional and national companies including Five Guys Burgers, Starbucks, Planet Fitness and Price Chopper.
