Our Company History
Established in 1963
In 1962, Robert J. Baecht started as a tile setter's apprentice. One day while picking up tile at a manufacturer he found gold wall tile being thrown away and asked if he could have it. This began his idea of using the gold tile for a design in his customers' showers. The design he liked best was a star. Customers loved the work that the gold star tile man did. Thus was born the name of Gold Star in 1963.
Robert has four sons who have at one time or another laid flooring. Three sons, Jimmy, Michael, and Bobby Baecht, now operate the company with Robert Baecht to the high standards he has been known for.
