MILWAUKEE – April 27th, 2015 – Tiles, Inc. doing business as ABOVE VIEW, announced today that the business is now owned by Linda Wilhelms. Ms. Wilhelms, a local business woman, assumed the business upon the passing of its founders, Janis Kalnajs and Nina Kuper. ABOVE VIEW was started in 1984 with the vision to produce artisanal quality ornamental plaster ceiling tiles on a commercial scale for commercial applications.

“ABOVE VIEW has a catalog of over 70 unique ornamental plaster ceiling tile designs ranging from traditional, geometric, and contemporary to the avant-garde,” said Ms. Wilhelms. “We have installations in hotels, casinos, restaurants, government buildings and fine residences around the world.”

Each ABOVE VIEW ceiling tile is an exquisitely executed, copyrighted design that drops into any standard 2’ x 2’ ceiling grid system. The designs are manufactured from a patented, non-toxic, non-combustible, biodegradable plaster compound. Each ceiling tile has a UL Class A fire rating, zero flame spread. Durable and stable, ABOVE VIEW’s tiles are superior to standard fiberboard, plastic or vinyl alternatives.

“I’m proud to be joining ABOVE VIEW to carry on its tradition of delivering fine products,” said John Tesensky, President. “Our team of talented craftsmen, many who have been with us for years, are dedicated to ensuring each tile is made to our exacting standards and 100% on-time delivery.”

“We are expanding market share through customization, cutting edge designs and collaboration with architects and interior designers.” stated Margaret Howland, the company’s new Director of Sales and Marketing.
