Designer Surfaces joins elite artisan group

October 25, 2010


Designer Surfaces has been selected as a member of the Artisan Group, a national organization of 36 independent countertop fabricators who have joined together to offer their own brands of premium countertops, including Artisan Stone Collection granite and marble and Saratoga Soapstone. The group also offers sinks through an exclusive Kohler specialty dealer program. The Artisan Stone Collection is the first and only granite countertop with a residential limited lifetime warranty, available in Maryland through Designer Surfaces and a second member - Solid Tops.

“Joining the Artisan Group is a great way for us to differentiate ourselves from our competition,” said Greg Fisher, Designer Surfaces president. “Designer Surfaces is a quality driven company, which goes along with the Artisan Group’s commitment to quality stone and service. As an Artisan Group member and fabricator, our customers will have the assurance they are receiving the highest quality of granite available, as well as the fabrication and installation.”

Serving the Baltimore/Washington, DC, Metro area, including parts of central Pennsylvania and northern Virginia, Designer Surfaces was founded in 1990 by brothers Greg and Don Fisher. Located in Frederick, MD, Designer Surfaces began as a fabrication and installation business for Corian, but has since expanded to include other surfaces which now include the Artisan Group Products: Artisan Stone Collection, Saratoga Soapstone, Modesto Granite and Heritage Wood, as well as Firstline care products and Kohler sinks and faucets. The company currently has 85 employees, and fabricates and installs 3,500 to 4,000 square feet of stone and quartz surfacing per week.
