The Schott family has a long history of stone working. In the late 1800s, brothers Nicola and Emidio Scioli emigrated to and settled in the town of Cliffside Park, NJ, where the family’s granite quarry was operated on the Palisades Cliffs.
After years of working in a different industry, Dan Hickey risked it all to start his very own fabrication business, of Franklin, IN, and later founded Water Jet Solutions, Inc., which completes 30% of his stone fabrication
In this issue of Stone World, we take a look at several U.S. stone producers. Among them is Quality Stone Quarries in Stigler, OK. The owner of the quarry has transitioned his business through the years to keep up with market demand.
