Joe Lundgren

The Tile Council of North America (TCNA) is pleased to announce Joe Lundgren, of Joseph Lundgren Consulting (JLC),  has joined the TCNA team to advance TCNA’s laboratory services. Mr. Lundgren’s extensive experience in the tile industry makes him uniquely well-suited to connect his customers with TCNA lab services which can help build their businesses. Marketplace requirements, conformance to standards, and product research are all areas where the customer benefits from the synergy between JLC and TCNA lab services.

Mr. Lundgren began his career in tile in 1984 with American Olean ascending the ranks to that of management at Dal-Tile, becoming vice president of marketing.

He represented Dal-Tile on TCNA’s Board of Directors and played a key part in TCNA initiatives aimed at growing the tile industry and the organization. “We are excited to have Joe working directly with our laboratory,” says TCNA executive director Eric Astrachan. “He has a great relationship with many of the top manufacturers and importers from around the world. Joe knows tile and the tile marketplace. We value his advice and know his insight into standards and quality will be invaluable to his customers. It is also personally gratifying that his consulting company is a supporter of the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation that TCNA and so many in the installation community have worked to advance.”

Mr. Lundgren will work closely with Claudio Bizzaglia, TCNA’s director of laboratory services. “I always valued the work TCNA did for the ceramic and stone industry while I was on their board of directors,” says Mr. Lundgren. “I look forward to promoting their testing services, including the new glass tile standard [ANSI A137.2] to ensure our industry continues to grow with the same quality TCNA has driven since 1945.”
