THE HISTORY OF PACIFIC SHORE STONES®
Donald, Marco and Vinny have their first experience with the natural stone industry in Los Angeles. They come to understand the challenges of purchasing and importing high-quality stone into the U.S., and are inspired to improve the process by working closely with quarries in Brazil. Eager to try their hand in the industry, they begin brokering containers to distributors in the U.S and Pacific Shore Stones® became a stone distributor.
The partners decide that Austin and the Central Texas markets offer great opportunities to bring Pacific Shore Stones®’ products and services to Texas. They launch their stone distribution center there as the largest indoor facility in Austin.
Having established itself as the stone distributor market leader, Pacific Shore Stones® expand its operation in Austin TX, increasing the warehouse to 33,000 square feet, making Austin the company’s largest distribution center.
Building on the company’s successful expansion into the state of Oklahoma, Pacific Shore Stones® decide to branch Eastward, opening a brand new 30,000 square foot warehouse in Little Rock, Arkansas.
