Word for a major tiling company?

Recommended Posts

Lu

I'm working on a small translation Dutch to Chinese* and looking for a term. It is for a company specialised in large-scale tiling projects. They don't produce the tiles themselves - they are part of the building process. They will work with contracters to make sure that your large new tile floor in your classroom/car dealership/whatever is laid quickly and at exactly the right time.

 

My question: what would you call such a company in Chinese? 瓷砖匠 sounds way too small-scale; 瓷砖商 sounds to me like they mainly sell boxes with tiles; and 瓷砖公司 also seems to mean 'a company that sells tiles'.

 

Can anyone help?

 

* Yes it's better to translate from your second language, not into it, but it really is a small translation and apart from this one term it is easy.

Do they do any of the work or do they simply ensure the work gets done on time?

They do both the planning and all the actual work.

After a quick think and a Google:
 

瓷砖承包商

Or
瓷砖工程承包商
