Fabricator Profile: Stone Masters Goes Green

Posted on 10 September 2015 by cradmin

images (1)Stone Masters, Inc., located in Kennett Square, Pa., does not only work with eco-friendly materials but has also adopted green business and management practices. However, the company deals with nearly all natural and engineered stone, including granite, marble, soapstone and quartz.

Among the highlights of Stone Masters’ green facilities is a design that maximizes the use of natural lighting with 132-foot by 4-foot translucent light panel. This panel has allowed the company to eliminate the use of electric lighting during 95 percent of its operating hours, and its supplementary lighting for the other 5 percent comes from high-efficiency T5 fluorescent fixtures.

Stone Masters also recycles its water with on-site equipment for reuse in the fabrication process, and all plastic, paper, cardboard and metal is recycled through Allied Waste. Small stone remnants and waste are compacted to reduce landfill impact, and the company even recycles waste oil from its fleet to heat the neighboring building in the business park where it is located.

Dan and Ann Marie DiTomaso founded Stone Masters after working in the real-estate industry and as remodeling contractors. They would buy houses, Dan would fix them up, including fabricating countertops and setting tile, and Ann Marie would sell the renovated houses. With help from Dan’s cousin Phillip, they conducted extensive research into stone fabrication, and opened their first shop in Aston, Pa.

Shortly afterward, the couple moved to Kennett Square, automated the shop and hired a team of designers, and the rest is history.
