(May 4th, 2011 -- JACKSON, Miss.)
Joining an elite group of 25 contractors from across the United States, Hohn & Hohn, Inc. was recently named a 5-Star Contractor by the National Tile Contractors Association. Based in St.Paul, Hohn & Hohn, Inc is the first tile contractor in the state of Minnesota to receive this distinction.
The select group of 5-Star recipients documented their track record of excellence and commitment to quality tile installations with recommendations from customers, suppliers, and peers; participation in training programs, educational seminars and events; an active safety program; and active membership with NTCA.
NTCA is the largest tile contractors association in the world, training and educating more than 5,000 professionals annually; and is the leading authority in the development of tile industry standards and methods. Hohn & Hohn, Inc. has been an NTCA member since 2003 and has actively participated in Association programs and events. In March, they received high honors by being awarded the Grand Prize for a Residential Tile Installation for 2011.
“We are very proud to be included in this distinguished group of 5-Star Contractors. This national recognition further sets us apart as one of the area’s highest quality tile contractors and represents the commitment to professionalism and service that have distinguished us over the years,” said company president, Jan Hohn.
Hohn & Hohn, Inc. is located in St. Paul and has been installing ceramic and stone tile in the area for more than 20 years. NTCA is a non-profit trade association serving every segment of the tile industry.
“I have been working in residential architecture for 20+ years. In my experience, Jan’s quality of craftsmanship is unmatched. Jan communicates throughout the process, provides samples along the way and brings issues of concern to the table. Jan has a good sense of design and she contributes her artistic eye combined with her practical knowledge to each job.”
-Jean Rehkamp Larson, partner AIA
“Jan’s skills first came to my attention by way of a local distributor of Ann Sacks tile. I needed the best
tile installer available to complete complex and intricate tile and stone work in a large, historic 1930s
Norman Manor house. Jan’s work was exemplary. I have insisted on working with her ever since.”
-Laurel Ulland, principal, Laurel Ulland Architecture
“Jan is one of those rare and special craftspeople whose personal expectation for excellence and
incredibly high skill level has combined to produce a professional whose finished projects not only
exceed expectations in terms of quality, but blend with the artistic to produce simply amazing results.”
