A few months ago, on our blog, we published an article on the collaboration of Montolit Tiling Tools with different realities which drive active efforts toward training young tilers. From these collaborations, Montolit collects important inputs to carry out the development and innovation of its manual tile cutters, as well as a wide range of professional tiling tools. The skills developed by these students can be measured when they participate in various international competitions, such as the Swiss Championship of Professions – Swiss Skills 2014 – held in Bern in September last year.
At that time we announced the participation of the best classified in the 2014 edition of Swiss Skills, under the category “Tilers”, in a competition of worldwide importance. Just this week we had a visit at our Cantello (Varese – Italy) headquarters of the young tiler Mike Brunner, awarded third place in the “World Skills Wall and Floor Tiling Championships”, that took place last August in São Paulo – Brazil.
This student of the Professional School of Switzerland Layers/Tilers, came to our laboratory with three of his instructors, to learn more about Montolit’s new proposals regarding tile cutters and professional equipment for tilers, which were also recently presented at the prestigious exhibition Cersaie held in Bologna (Italy). In the above picture, we can see him using the LFT – Large Format Tile cutter Flash Line, a complete system for cutting porcelain stoneware, giant tiles and slabs from 0 to over 130 inches.
During the visit to our lab, we wanted to pay tribute to the excellent work done by this young tiler, handing a “special edition”, unique version, tile cutter, with a commemorative plaque stating:
“Word Skills 2015 – São Paulo – Brasil
With compliments to Mike Brunner
Patents by Montolit – Italy ”
Our warmest wishes to Mike for a successful career, with the constant support of Montolit Tiling Tools and tile cutters.
