Austin, Texas – July 30, 2015 Representatives with Pacific Shore Stones today announced the launch of a new line of own-brand quartz, named Pacshore Quartz. The new product line features twelve colors inspired by the Pacific Islands, offering a versatile range of choices to suit different tastes and applications. Quartz is a popular alternative to natural stone, offering many similar benefits for both residential and commercial projects.
Pacific Shore Stones Operating Partner Vinny Tavares said: “We’ve seen a lot of growth in the quartz sector recently, and we wanted to bring in our own line to offer our customers a high-quality product at an affordable price.” Operating Partner Marco A. Pereira added: “Innovating and bringing in new products is an important part of our business strategy. Pacshore Quartz has been developed in response to trends we’ve observed in the market, to meet the needs of our clients.”
The new product line is created by combining 93% natural quartz stone with 7% resin binder and colorant, resulting in a product which is stronger than granite or marble. Pacshore Quartz offers many advantages: it’s low maintenance, easy to clean, scratch-resistant, affordable, non-porous and offers color consistency. In addition, Pacshore Quartz comes with a 15 year warranty.
Pacshore Quartz meets all industry standards including UL Greenguard Gold for indoor air quality and NSF International Seal for safe surfaces for food preparation. Pacshore Quartz will initially be available across all central Pacific Shore Stones locations, with future plans to expand the distribution area.
The addition of the Pacshore Quartz product line is part of the continuing expansion plans for Pacific Shore Stones in coming years. Further information about Pacshore Quartz can be found at: www.pacificshorestones.com/pacshorequartz
