AUSTIN, TX — The Artisan Group hosted its first ever industry trade show, during the annual member meeting in Austin, TX. Exhibitors from 17 companies exhibited at the event:  Kohler, Cambria, VT Industries, Living Stone, Park Industries, Granite City Tool, Stone Pro, Marble Institute of America, Blick Industries, Fabricator’s Choice, Laser Products, The Africa Range, Craft Art, Glue Warehouse, Total Administration Group, SCMEP and Slabsmith.

Josh and Nikki Stein, along with their four daughters, recent recipients of a “Homes for Our Troops (HFOT)” home, stopped by to tell the story of how the HFOT home has helped them have a better life after Josh lost his legs during his Army tour in Afghanistan. Artisan Group held a national granite yard sale last year and raised $32,000 for the organization. The group raised an additional $1,500 at a group dinner during the meeting, thanks to a raffle by Yeti Coolers and Kohler, and plans on having its second annual “Counters for A Cause” granite yard sale benefitting HFOT in October. 

In addition to planning meetings, a slab yard tour and networking, Rob Riegler, owner, and Matt Neiger, Sales Operations Manager of Lakeside Solid Surfaces in Michigan, were welcomed as the newest members to the Artisan Group.
