I would like to thank all of you who have helped us to grow the name of Master Terrazzo Technologies. First of all, I would
like to thank the great employees that we have had over the years. There should be no question, we have been a great

Above all else, my goal will be to provide the premier terrazzo system to the finest terrazzo installers, and to offer
outstanding customer service and support to our architectural and design clients, and to our terrazzo installers. Selecting
terrazzo should always be gratifying experience for architects, designers and building owners; there is no finer floor finish.
About Master Terrazzo Technologies
Throughout several transitions since the 1960’s, Master Terrazzo Technologies has been perfecting the science of the
design and installation of terrazzo.
In 1960, the MacNaughton-Brooks Company formulated and introduced Morricite™ to the terrazzo industry. Morricite™ was
named after Port Morris Tile and Marble, in respect for their valued contribution in the early product development.
Master Builders Technologies, worldwide leaders in admixture technology, purchased the MacNaugton-Brooks Company in
1978, and Master Terrazzo Technologies, LLC purchased the Morricite™ product line in 1997, with a commitment to provide
innovation and leadership through a total commitment of resources to the terrazzo industry.
In 2008, Master Terrazzo Technologies was purchased by Consolidated Coatings, Inc. This acquisition resulted from CCI’s
long-term interest in the terrazzo business. Following the acquisition, Michael H. Blackburn (father of Michael F Blackburn),
a prior owner of MTT with over 20 years of experience in the terrazzo industry, remained with MTT as National Sales
Master Terrazzo Technologies has provided materials for many millions of square feet of quality terrazzo installations
throughout the world. The foundation of any epoxy terrazzo manufacturer is the terrazzo matrix that binds the aggregate
and bonds the terrazzo to the concrete substrate. Our flagship Morricite™ System has a rich history of performance and
value dating back for over 60 years.
