Posted on 16 July 2020 by cradmin3

Braxton-Bragg, one of the most respected distributors in the stone industry for the past 26 years, has changed its name to BB Industries (BBI), to reflect the company’s explosive growth in people, products and partnerships.  

“As our company has grown and evolved to the point where we are nearly unrecognizable, so now it is time to mirror that change in our name,” said CEO Rick Stimac. “We have added some of the most experienced sales consultants in the industry to our team, brought thousands of premium products to our offering, as well as partnered with top industry brands. This massive growth and transformation warrants a name that matches our innovation. We are committed to being the best product supplier and a true partner in the stone industry.”

BBI represents the company’s tagline of Better Service, Better Value, as well as adds industry to symbolize the group’s larger footprint.

“Nothing is changing but our name and our growth objectives,” added Stimac. “We have been very strategic with our company growth since I took the helm three years ago, and have reconstructed our organization in nearly every aspect from staff to offering. BBI will not waver from our total dedication to world class service, top-of-the-line products, industry education, expanded CNC offering and the industry’s only 30-day money-back guarantee. We feel the BBI image represents our 26 years of experience, while embracing all of our changes, and striving to meet our new objectives.”

Posted on 11 March 2015 by cradmin

Park Industries Fusion S CNC waterjet sawPark Industries has launched the new FUSION® S series of CNC saw/waterjet cutting machine that have a tilt table option that reduces material handling constraints, decreases slab breakage and makes the tank much easier to clean. The machine maximizes cutting time by using a CNC saw for straight cuts, then switches to a precision waterjet for tight angles. Additionally, the company’s iTECH interface technology simplifies operations, eliminating the need to remember codes for programming. A single slab can be processed in 20 minutes and the automatic 0 to 47-degree mitering capabilities of the system allow production of mitered apron edges in a matter of minutes, according to the company. The machines also have the company’s OPS Productivity reporting, which allows production analysis in real time, on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. The machines also have a unique Quad Guard systems that protects drive components and machine performance sensors (that sense stone height and garnet flow) to help prevent operator mistakes. Additionally, the machine automatically notifies of routine maintenance needed. They have a low tank height for easy table access, are available in single- and dual-tank models.
