Antonio Faienza and his three sons, Vincent (Enzo), Joe and Tony Jr. founded Universal Ceramic Tile Distributors Inc.(UCTD) in March of 1996. Being a family owned and operated business we take pride in providing the best quality service in the industry. Along with great service comes a large and expansive high quality product line. All in stock material is directly imported from Italy, Spain, Turkey, Thailand, and China.
At UCTD we import a large selection of ceramic & porcelain body floor tile, wall tile, and backsplash tile. All this material is conveniently stocked in our large 40,000 square foot warehouse. Our state of the art designer showroom is located at 301 Murphy Road in the outskirts of Hartford, CT. Our showroom features many different types of displays that make your tile shopping experience simple and non exhausting. Over 30 different floors have been laid in the showroom to help give our customers a variety of design ideas. The showroom also features various tiled vignettes featuring many of the latest styles and trends. The showroom can be broken down into 5 main sections. The first is a natural stone room, which highlights a variety of the industry’s finest natural stone including marble, granite, limestone, onyx, slate, and tumbled marble. Secondly is a designer backsplash and special order tile room that features unique tile such as glass, metal, and hand painted tiles. Our third section is the main showroom, which shows our entire floor tile line in several unique ways. The 4th area is the wall tile section which showcases all of our in stock ceramic wall tile. The final and 5th section is our contractor/closeout section. Here you will find all discontinued tile at bargain prices as well as various tools of the trade.
