Every business needs new customers, that much is (I hope!) obvious. But do you know what’s even MORE important? A strong, loyal base of returning customers who start to feel like partners on your company’s journey. Within manufacturing, positive relationships like these cause a domino effect of good things. Happy clients breed happy clients from the ground—or stonework, in our case—on up to the finished countertop. With teams of designers and fabricators, stone shops, and installers, are a few of the newest additions to the growing SPEEDlabel® family.
Baptista Tile & Stone Gallery
Located in Bend, Oregon, Baptista Tile & Stone Gallery offers a showroom that is open to the public and features more than 80 vendors to choose from. Their five in-house designers are happy to provide experience and creative skills for free with the purchase of tile and/or tile installation, and slab fabrication and installation.
At Baptista Tile, the women-led team offers complementary services on an hourly basis as well. These include interior and exterior paint, lighting, plumbing, cabinetry, window finishes, exterior stone, roofing, or anything you need to complete your project. The showroom is open by appointment, and you can request a design consultation online or by calling 541.668.8099. Follow them on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Houzz.
Sterling Marble & Granite
Off the mainland, Sterling Marble & Granite works on Puerto Rico’s finest kitchens, bathrooms, and commercial projects using granite, quartz, and marble. Active members of the Marble Institute of America, they are an authoritative source for natural stone workmanship standards and information.
Sterling also offers high technology cutting and polishing as well as island-wide service delivered on time and on budget. Projects have included countertops, floors, columns, bars, and cladding, among others. Find their work on Facebook and Instagram or get an easy Quick Quote. Their work has been showcased in airports, hotels, restaurants, homes, department stores, movie theaters, spas, and hospitals. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
Another tropical addition, Exotic Countertops hails from sunny Pompano Beach, Florida. A family-owned company, they produce finely crafted quartz countertops, granite countertops, marble countertops, vanities, fireplaces, tub surroundings, and much more. They promise fast, clean, affordable service and are open to customer questions “because we believe that good communication will always make the remodeling process more pleasant and less stressful.”
From the kitchen to the bathroom and everywhere in between, Exotic Countertops will help clients go from an average to an exotic countertop at the push of a button. They’ll provide free quotes through the website as well as a gallery of their latest work in and around the community. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
There’s nothing more glamorous than a custom piece. Bespoke Countertops specializes in custom fabrication and installation of engineered and natural stone countertops throughout Texas. New build or remodel, adding value or just updating tired old fixtures, Bespoke prides itself in a three-step, white-glove experience. From appointment and material selection to templates and CAD processing, to final production and installation, they’ll be by your side.
When they’re ready to begin, customers can start the conversation online and even download their New Homeowner Countertops and Flooring guide full of information and resources. Follow them on Facebook, Instagram, and Houzz.
North Carolina may not be their natural habitat but Gorilla Stone is sure thriving! Self-proclaimed Head Gorilla Howie Lang decided to skip the middleman and set up stone production himself, instead of juggling multiple fabricators across multiple states.
They now work in quartz, natural stone, and Dekton and offer design packages for kitchens, bathrooms, mud and laundry rooms, and bar areas. Gorilla Stone also deals in stone and stone remnants for any need. Their new showroom hopes to open its doors in late 2022 but until then can be reached at email@example.com or by calling 704.458.4342. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
Forbes magazine reminds businesses that “As you prepare to hit ‘refresh’ on your marketing strategy for the year ahead, remember, ‘out with the old, in with the new’ does not apply to everything. Acquiring new customers is vital to future growth. But acquisition should not come at the expense of existing customers.” At SPEEDlabel®, their team values each and every client, whether long-timers or those just scheduling a label tutorial.
From large fabrication floors to mom-and-pop shops, SPEEDlabel® streamlines and allows for paperless tracking, and makes every aspect of the process flow smoothly. And that’s a win/win for everyone.
