NIXA, MO - Area fabricators gathered at Global Granite & Marble’s open house on October 11, 2006, in Nixa, MO. Kacey Cowdery and Terry Erickson from Global Granite & Marble visited with Kevin Pridemoor, owner of KPC Tile and Stone in Ozark, MO, and his wife, Debbi. The Pridemoors were among guests who toured the stone selection center to look at slabs of granite, marble, slate, travertine and a variety of other natural stone slabs imported from more than 30 countries, including Brazil, Italy, India and Spain.
The stone selection center in Nixa opened in response to high demand from custom homebuilders and new commercial ventures in southwest Missouri.
