CGM has posted a 161% growth over the last five years, ranking CGM in the 50 fastest growing companies in Chicago. CGM continues to work toward its mission to be the natural choice for the building and remodeling industry in the provision of natural stone solutions by setting the highest standards of quality, service and delivery, reports the company.
