Austin, Texas – August 24, 2015 Representatives with Pacific Shore Stones, a leading importer and distributor of exotic natural stones, today announced its successful inclusion by Inc. Magazine for the third year running in its annual Inc 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Pacific Shore Stones’ three year sales growth rate of 91% earned the company number 3512 on the list.
Since last year’s Inc 5000 listing, Pacific Shore Stones has continued its growth, opening a new location in Greenville, SC in February 2015. A new distribution center was also opened in Pasadena, TX close to the port of Houston to supply material across the central region. As well as continuing to carry a large inventory of core colors and exotics, new product lines have been added: Neolith, a sintered compact surface, and Pacshore Quartz, Pacific Shore Stones’ own collection of quartz. Another growth area was fabrication tool sales, with the distribution reach expanded to cover fabricators in Memphis and Little Rock and the surrounding areas.
Operating Partner Vinny Tavares said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be on the list again this year. With the opening of the new distribution center, I feel that operating under a hub and spoke model will make us a lot more efficient. This efficiency, combined with better inventory management will allow us to be even more competitive and to pass the cost savings on to our customers.”
Founder/Operating Partner Marco A. Pereira commented, “I’m very proud of this achievement. Being included on the list for three years in a row really cements our success and the hard work and dedication of our staff. Looking to the future, we aim to continue this growth and to evolve as the market changes to keep up with new products and trends.”
