Without a doubt, we’ve come a long way in a year. Time flies - that will never change - but I’m always amazed by what we’re able to do in only 12 months.
The Natural Stone Council (NSC) is on an incredible journey - one that inspires and challenges me every day. Our recently adopted three-year strategic plan, the tenets of which I will discuss in a moment, is both exciting and motivating. On the other hand, venturing into uncharted territory requires taking risks and brings with it some uncertainty. That said, I am confident that our collective efforts will result in unprecedented success for our industry.
For this issue, we are excited to share with you four features that focus on using compact and ultrathin slabs in both residential and commercial projects. As these products continue to gain popularity, we wanted to share different ideas of applications, including an upscale dining environment in the interior of a Saks Fifth Avenue.
