Tile West History:
After graduating from high school, Carl E. Jacobson worked as a union finisher-tile setter and project manager for Superior Tile of Santa Rosa. In 1962 a new branch of Superior Tile was opened in Marin and Mr. Jacobson became both a partner and the manager of Superior Tile Marin.
In 1969 Mr. Jacobson’s partner and mentor, John Kowell, passed on and Mr. Jacobson saw the opportunity to own the business and continue what was started years before. Mr. Jacobson bought the remaining shares of the company and Tile West was born.
Since those early days, Tile West has grown each year and continues today as one of the leading union tile contractors in the San Francisco Bay Area. Tile West has competed in all phases of the construction industry: commercial, multi-housing tracts, custom residential, tenant improvement, and even industrial.
