FRANKLIN PARK, IL - Chicago Granite & Marble (CGM), a leading supplier, fabricator and installer of natural stone slabs and tiles, was recently ranked on Crain’s “Fast 50” business list as the 48th fastest growing company in Chicago for the second consecutive year. CGM has grown to become a fabricator of distinction to the trade and one of the most successful purveyors of natural stone products in Illinois.

CGM has posted a 161% growth over the last five years, ranking CGM in the 50 fastest growing companies in Chicago. CGM continues to work toward its mission to be the natural choice for the building and remodeling industry in the provision of natural stone solutions by setting the highest standards of quality, service and delivery, reports the company.

“Despite the homebuilding slump, remodeling has remained strong as homeowners update bathrooms and kitchens to lure buyers or simply to upgrade,” said Anik Narula, CEO. “The company moved into new markets, opening stone galleries in Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Omaha, NE. It’s also profited from big projects.”

“At CGM, ‘execution’ is a key corporate strategy and a guiding principle behind the way we do business across the U.S.,” said Rakesh Malhotra, UGM Group COO. “We continuously strive to build value for stakeholders and employees. We focus on hiring the right people and having an actionable strategy, and then consistently focus on executing it with full steam.”
