The 52,000 square foot warehouse is dedicated to storing up to 15,000 slabs, providing a wide selection of material from core colors to high end exotics, as well as quartz and Neolith. Four five-ton overhead cranes have been installed at the facility to enable the efficient maneuvering of material.
