KNOXVILLE, TN — Steve Anneker and Tim Parker, the developers and marketers of the Polishing Pro System, are offering stone restoration solutions for fabricators, presenting them with a new revenue stream. “There are many fabrication shops who turn down restoration jobs, because they don’t have the equipment or the training to do it,” said Parker. “Think of it this way, the installers who install your carpet are not the same people who will come back to clean your carpet. The need keeps growing; this is a brand-new market, for those who get in on it now. You can compare this to concrete or marble floor polishing, which is really big — but has quickly become very competitive.”stone world news 3

The two new products developed for the Polishing Pro System (Polishing Pro and Polishing Pro for Engineered Stone) are formulated to work differently.

This class is very different from the videos previously made to explain installation and stone usage. “The first product, the Polishing Pro System for Natural Stone, is easier to demonstrate and use. But for the second, a deeper understanding of quartz is important.”

The class has been designed to explain that not only can these products be used to repair a fabrication mishap, but also to fill a need in the current recession, where home and business owners cannot necessarily afford to replace stained or scratched stone.

The students spent two days learning this burgeoning new business, as well as getting their hands dirty learning techniques of polishing different types of natural and engineered stone and working with stain removal.
