Schlough Receives Migliore Award for Lifetime Achievement at TISE

Posted on 24 February 2016 by cradmin

2016-02-SchloughPark Industries owner Tom Schlough was recently awarded the Marble Institute of America’s 2015 Migliore Award for Lifetime Achievement at TISE 2016. Based in St. Cloud, Minn., Park Industries develops stone processing machinery and equipment. Schlough’s entrepreneurial leadership lead to many industry achievements. The company is responsible for introducing the first diamond-tipped saw for cutting granite slabs in 1979. Park Industries also went on to develop a CNC router for dimensioning, shaping and cutting marble and granite in 1998. In 2003, it also introduced a system to process full dimension stone into thin-stone veneer. Though Schlough has since retired, he and his wife remain involved as principal owners of the company.
During his acceptance speech, he reflected on his leadership in the stone industry and thanked customers. “Customers first—you are the reason we are here. Everybody has good and bad days—and together, we can get through,” he said. “In retrospect, it wasn’t always easy, but if I had known then what I know now, I would have done the same thing. It has been a great ride.”
