Here we grow again…

Co-owners, family members and industry leaders in home finishes, Eric and Maria Bartolacci have expanded their brood once again. With over 28 years in the flooring industry with Select Ceramic Tile and 15 years fabricating custom granite and quartz countertops with Bella Marble & Granite, another company has begun:

Welcome to Milano Kitchens Inc.


Eric moved to Canada as a young boy from Italy, a country where exotic, ancient stones pave the historical streets. He had much in common with his soon to be wife, Maria, who moved to Canada as a young girl, from Portugal. These two started out as a small tile installation company: Eric was the installer and Maria did the books. It was a great combination and allowed Maria to stay home with their 2 young children, Rosita and Gabriel (Gabe).

Together, with their passion for their homelands’ beautiful finishes, their entrepreneurial skills and desire for a bigger challenge, in 1988 they started Select Ceramic Tile Centre Inc. After almost 30 years in the market place, Select Ceramic Tile Centre has been importing tile, marble and everything in between from all over the world, especially their respective homelands. They import, distribute and sell all over Atlantic Canada.

With the success of Select Tile, Eric and Maria were longing for another challenge. With the popularity of granite and quartz on the rise, They felt the local market had a place for custom granite, quartz and marble countertops; hence the birth of Bella Marble & Granite Inc. With one of the largest stocking warehouses of granite, marble and quartz slabs this side of Montreal, you can literally walk in and pick your slab. The fabrication shop is also onsite, so you can see the transformation of your slab into your very own customized countertop…. and they’ll install it too!

With the successes of both companies and entrusting many of the day to day operations to their two children, Rosita and Gabe, Eric and Maria felt it was time for yet another challenge: Milano Kitchens Inc.
