StoneWorks, Inc. of Hilton Head and Bluffton, SC, has earned the designation of Marble Institute of America (MIA) Accredited Natural Stone Fabricator.


BLUFFTON, SC - StoneWorks, Inc. of Hilton Head and Bluffton, SC, has earned the designation of Marble Institute of America (MIA) Accredited Natural Stone Fabricator.

To become an Accredited Natural Stone Fabricator by the MIA, a company must have successfully completed three phases of application. Phase One is the completion of a lengthy application that requires the applicant company to provide various documents and references, which ensure that the company is in compliance with the 10 standards of accreditation as laid out by the MIA Accreditation Commission. Phase Two requires the company’s qualifying agent (the designated company representative responsible for filing and maintaining accreditation records for the applicant company) to pass an extensive exam. The exam tests the applicant’s knowledge and application of material usage, installation, fabrication, restoration, care and maintenance, administration, legal/contracts and jobsite and shop safety. Phase Three is a comprehensive site visit, which includes a facility review, document review and one or more installation site visits.

StoneWorks is the 35th natural stone fabricator to have achieved MIA accreditation. “We are incredibly honored to have received this illustrious designation, which is a direct reflection of the wonderful, professional staff and high standards at StoneWorks,” said John Baltzegar, III, owner of StoneWorks.

“StoneWorks, Inc. is now able to proudly display the accreditation logo, which symbolizes that they are among the finest in the natural stone industry with respect to craftsmanship, safety and business practices,” said Garen Distelhorst, Accreditation Manager at the MIA.
