ATLANTA, GA -- GranQuartz Stone Tools and Equipment has opened its sixth full-line store here. With over 5,000 stocking items, GranQuartz offers a complete selection of tools and equipment to the stone fabricator and installer.

The company’s aim is to continue to find ways to offer tools and equipment to the stone tradesman in a more timely and effective manner, according to Peter de Kok, founder and President of GranQuartz. “As the Atlanta market is one of the strongest residential markets in the U.S., the stone fabricator and installer needs the service and support a store can offer,” stated de Kok.

The store is managed by William Rodriguez, who is fluent in Spanish and English and a veteran of GranQuartz’ inside sales representative team.
