FIT is not what you think!
FACTORY INSTALLATION TRAINING (FIT)
Ludowici welcomes roofing and installation contractors (of all terra cotta experience levels) to apply and attend Ludowici for a multi-day learning event. This includes a tour of the historical New Lexington tile factory (opened in 1888) and Factory of Ideas Showroom, as well as professional installation training from our in-house technical team of engineers and architects. The FIT Program was created for any roofing contractors interested in learning more about Ludowici, terra cotta products, proper installation techniques, and as a potential stepping stone to enter Ludowici’s exclusive Crown Roofer Program. Upon completion, roofing contractors and installers will be given the status of Factory Installation Trained.
The primary goal of Ludowici’s three-day technical training is to educate, equip, and enable roofing contractors to feel comfortable about successfully installing terra cotta roofing products. It also serves as a potential entry point and stepping stone to enter Ludowici’s exclusive Crown Roofer Program.

factory and Factory of Ideas showroom.
