New Texas fabricator

WACO, TX -- For his recently opened company, "Authentic Granite and Marble," owner Leonard Hooks purchased a range of equipment from Regent Stone Products of Virginia Beach, VA. Included among the new machinery is the Marmoelettro- meccanica America 3600 bridge saw and the Master 3500 edge polisher. "I looked at other machines and compared prices with advantages of the machines," said Hooks. "The America had more features for the money. And since I had done business with Regent previously, I was comfortable with their service and quality of products."

Hooks also researched the Master 3500 before purchasing it. "Compared with other polishers, it had the most complete set of bits, where you don't have to do a lot of handwork," said Hooks. Since the purchase of the machines, Hooks and his four workers have been able to produce about 2 kitchens a week at his shop.

Look for a feature article on Authentic Granite and Marble in a future issue of Stone World.
