Gemstone Announces Changes in Leadership

Posted on 30 May 2018 by cradmin

Gemstone of Elkhart, Ind. announced that Larry Sensenbaugh, after 19 years of leadership, has decided to retire as president. Sensenbaugh will remain on the board with an ownership stake. “Larry has done a great job of leading Gemstone to where we are today. While he will be missed in day to day operations, I know I can always reach out to Larry when needed” says Jeffrey Smith, Gemstone’s Sales & Marketing Manager. Sensenbaugh joined Gemstone in June of 1999 and guided Gemstone’s growth from a regional manufacturer of solid surface countertops to the leading solid surface sink manufacturer that it is today.

At the same time as Sensenbaugh’s departure, Mr. Tim Cole is welcomed into Gemstone’s Management team as Operations Manager. Cole comes to Gemstone from Welch Packaging in Elkhart where he was most recently General Manager. Prior to that Cole also served roles as an Account Manager, Plant Manager and Quality Manager at Welch. “Tim Brings to Gemstone a rich production and quality background. While we believe we make the best sinks in the business, we know we can make our operations more efficient and we plan on leaning on Tim to help us do that,” says Ed Jarrett, Gemstone’s General Manager. In prior positions Cole has held, he has implemented Value Stream Mapping, ISO 9000 compliant quality control programs, and KanBan inventory management systems among other skills that will help Gemstone launch new and innovative programs in 2018 and 2019.

Five New Models of Sinks Introduced by Gemstone

Posted on 05 August 2015 by cradmin

GemstoneFive new lavatory models of sinks were introduced by Gemstone. With more ramped sinks for healthcare, the sinks can be integrated with the backsplash in fabrication for a design that reduces areas that might harbor bacteria. The new sinks are designed to have a cleaner look, more sizes to choose from, offset drains and universal designs. They include the new universally designed 1711-UVO (with or without an integrated overflow) made for 18-in. cabinets; 1416-V (pictured here) and 1518-V for hand washing stations that can be installed with a flush backsplash; 1513-VO ramp sink with rear overflow; and 1814-EVO shallow rectangle sink with side overflow that complies with Europe’s ADA requirements.

Gemstone Upgrades VO Sink Line

Posted on 16 October 2014 by cradmin

Gemstone photoGemstone unveiled its latest Universal Design, its newly upgraded 1613-VO; the company’s most popular sink model. With a consistent 10-degree draft all of the way around the top of the bowl routing will be much easier and faster, providing more efficient production, minimizing sanding and saving labor and money. With a depth of 5 in., the sink allows for easy ADA application and conformity. The new sink not only has clean, smooth curves, it features integral overflow, but can be specified with no overflow, and is 27 percent lighter because of a reduction in material in the overflow chamber and flange, making it easier to handle to save install time.
