Because cost is almost always a factor in choosing a building material, the cost savings derived from both transport and installation of thin stone should exponentially increase the use of natural stone, and this increase should occur quickly. In fact, some stone suppliers are already experiencing phenomenal growth.
Based on the amount of natural thin that we produced last year and the demand that we see for the products in the coming year, we would expect to have to more than double our production in the coming year. We have experienced a growth since 2009 (a recession year) of more than 200 percent. We expect this amount to increase as a direct result of thin veneers being utilized by more and more consumers as awareness grows of its advantages over manufactured products. We added a new production facility, 3 new saws in the past 2 years and have a new staging area. Our plan is to improve inventory to move products to our dealers and customer much more quickly in the coming year.
Stone is a product of nature and the color of the stone can vary according to areas harvested or mined. We make every effort so represent the color of the product accurately on our website and in our marketing materials. However, photos can be affected by lighting, photography, editing, reproduction or printing. It is important to view the actual product when deciding on a particular product.
