About Us

There are literally thousands of people who entered the granite business as a result of the explosion in demand for granite countertops.  However, few have over 36 years of experience in this industry.  Mark Crouse has grown up in the granite business from starting as a draftsman in 1977 to project management and ultimately spending 15 years in international sales.  Over the many years in the stone industry, Mark has inspected various granite quarries throughout the world as well as visiting some of the largest and newest stone fabrication facilities from those in Italy to China and India.

Through meetings, education and seminars, Mark has consulted with some of the world's most influential architects and designers about the use of stone on some of the world's largest buildings.  Below are some of the events in previous years.
