About Universal Tile Group


Our History

              Family owned and operated since 1972, Universal Tile Group prides themselves as direct importers of high quality tile at competitive pricing. The company began as a small showroom in Miami Beach as the first American venture of Hugo Ignorato, the founder of UTG. Born and raised in Naples, Italy and a proud father of four, Hugo was a pioneer in the tile industry who labored countless late nights to ensure the success of his company.

                In the mid-1980s Hugo's children, Gaetano, Luigi, and Angelica, pridefully carried on their father's legacy by expanding the expertise of the company into installations and home renovations. Since then, the company has taken on countless commercial and residential projects and have developed a presence as the arguably the most reputable flooring company in South Florida.

                 For over 50 years, Universal Tile Group has been serving the needs of customers all over Florida by
 offering high-quality tile, in-house installation, and several other services that you sometimes won't find at big-box retail stores. They stand by their promises, as each employee embraces their core strengths and has proved time and time again to be the one you can trust to make a real difference in your home.

                As the highest-rated tile and renovation company in South Florida, we abide by the highest industry standards. From corporate ethics to sustainability practices, our commitment to our customers stands strongly: providing quality products and services customers can rely on to provide maximum value and satisfaction.
