F. Barkow Inc. of Milwaukee, WI, has launched a new Web address for its custom stone carriers: www.stonecarriers.com.

F. Barkow manufactures custom stone carriers that mount on vans, pickups and larger trucks, which carry slabs of stone for kitchen countertops and other installations. The carriers have the advantage of being mounted on the outside of the vehicle, about 18 inches from the ground, making it easier to handle stone products. People who visit www.stonecarriers.com will be redirected to the Stone section of the original Barkow Web site, www.barkow.com. There is also an “Idea Gallery,” which showcases various truck bodies that have been made specifically for stone, marble and granite customers. For more information, contact F. Barkow Inc. at 800-558-5580.
