O&G Industries and Stony Creek Quarry form alliance to meet "green" demands
By combining O&G's contractor customers and architectural network with Stony Creek's product availability the newly formed alliance will accelerate and fulfill LEED building requirements for granite materials. LEED is a certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.
Taking a decisive step further, O&G has agreed to display and inventory Stony Creek products at all five O&G masonry stores and showrooms, enabling faster turnaround time for stone veneers, steps, pavers, treads and decorative aggregate requirements to meet its customers' demands. Stony Creek has authorized O&G as a distributor of Stone Creek material.
"We are extremely pleased to be aligned with Stony Creek Quarry, a company that offers quality granite and a rock-solid history right here in Connecticut," remarked Bob Rizzo, Vice President of Operations with O&G Industries, Masonry Division. "We believe that our vast network of customers in the architectural market combined with the LEED certified granite quarried through Stony Creek Quarry will yield some remarkable exteriors and future prominent landmarks throughout the New England region."
"Teaming up with O&G Industries provides us exclusive access to build off a solid brand in the masonry industry," commented Doug Anderson, President of Stony Creek Quarry. "This agreement will allow us to expand our product offerings through a well-respected, reliable company and tap into a loyal customer base. It's the perfect fit for both companies."
