NSI Stone Summit: Stone Shop Management at Bridgeport, CT
Natural Stone Institute
held another successful event on May 23, 2019 at Bridgeport, Connecticut. European Marble & Granite graciously hosted the event, which included 37 fabricators from 23 companies.
Local fabricator, Buddy Ontra gave an opening speech, followed by guest speaker, Tony Malisani who educated the attendees on topics, such as the NSI accreditation process for keeping up with top tier fabricators on professional standards and certification.
During the afternoon, the participants were divided into three groups by varying topics, including fabrication, marketing, and sales practices. Among many pleasant discoveries at the fabrication forum, was the reveal of individuals whose companies own machineries, all had Breton stone machine products
in their inventory.
Breton USA is a key sponsor of the NSI Stone Summits
, and will be present at the next event: Knowing Your Business
at Cleveland, Ohio on June 13, 2019. John Fallon, sales agent who has been to more than a dozen Summits—along with other Breton representatives—encourage local owners and fabricators to attend upcoming events to gain stone industry insights.
