Breton Attends the Allied Stone Industries Fall Study Tour
Breton’s National Sales Manager, Mr. Egon Hinss, was honored to attend the first ASI Fall Study Tour as a full member organization. Joining Mr. Hinss as a guest was Mr. Kav Houshmand who represents Breton in Canada. This year’s event took place in Houshmand’s hometown of Toronto, Canada at the historic Fairmont York Hotel.
The study tour included a visit to Oakville Stone for a presentation on their global partners, a tour of the warehouse and a hands-on demonstration on how to trim and rock pitch natural stone. We also visited traditional cut stone for a tour of their beautiful showroom and carving studio as well as their modern fabrication facility.
On day two, the group visited Niagara Falls and enjoyed a closing night dinner at the renowned Wayne Gretzky Estate. A meeting of industry leaders is not complete without a roundtable discussion and it is always fascinating to hear the current concerns and successes of the members.
Hinss says, “it is always special to come together with your peers and discuss topics that affect us all firsthand. This organization brings us all together to share ideas and further the industry.”
It is a pleasure and privilege to be a part of these events, and we thank the ASI and its organizers for putting on a world-class tour.
