Stone World Fabrication Workshops To Take Place In The Northeast

Based on overwhelming demand by fabricators and the success of the first Stone World Stone Fabrication Workshops in California, a second set of workshops will be taking place in the Northeastern U.S. this November. The sessions will take place on November 14 in Newark, NJ; on November 15 in Long Island, NY; and on November 17 in Boston, MA.

“The Stone Fabrication Workshops” are intensive one-day seminars that deliver cutting-edge information and practical tips from respected industry experts, Kevin Padden, Keith Graves and Fred Hueston. Attendees will learn how to run their shop more efficiently to increase output and profits. The session is intended for fabrication shop managers, owners/decision makers and fabrication shop workers.

The first set of seminars took place in Burbank, Anaheim and Oakland, CA, and drew over 200 attendees. Seminar evaluations were completed by workshop attendees, and the speaker presentations received outstanding reviews -- consistently achieving the highest possible rating. In particular, attendees pointed to the interactive nature of the workshops as well as the specific material covered. “Great topics -- short and to the point,” stated one fabricator. “Not too much, but enough information to absorb.” “The instructors were leaders in their field,” stated another. “ It was great to hear about some of the issues our company and industry are facing today.”

Attendees also expressed their appreciation for the question-and-answer sessions. “The instructions are highly knowledgeable as well as approachable,” stated one attendee. “The presenters are very knowledgeable and eager to answer questions,” stated another. “They offered honest tips that can be used on a daily basis.”

Topics include:

  • Determining and Applying Fabrication Costs
  • Fabricating Engineered Stone -- How to Repair and Polish It
  • Granite -- Are Repairs Acceptable?
  • Stone Defects and Natural Occurrences
  • Resined Slabs -- Are They a Problem?
  • OSHA Requirements
  • Air/Water Purification
  • Templating
  • Management Strategies to Effectively Run the Fabrication Shop
  • Tips on Updating and Expanding the Fabrication Shop to Maximize Production

A registration fee of $195 includes the full one-day workshop, all workshop meals (continental breakfast, lunch and beverages), a Networking Reception immediately following the workshop, an informational CD-ROM and other materials from Workshop sponsors.
