LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On May 14, 2016, Granite America will host a grand opening event at their new location. Louisville's Mayor Greg Fischer will be present to perform the official ribbon cutting. The event showcases Granite America's state-of-the-art digital fabrication techniques such as robotic cutting and CNC waterjet technology, the first of its kind in the region. Granite America directly imports granite from around the world.
"I love natural stone. It is amazing that Mother Nature can create such beautiful masterpieces," says Deepa Kamat, president of Granite America. "Importing from multiple countries allows us to offer several exotic stones that are not easily found, and gives us a wonderful advantage providing our customers with a wide selection of truly inspirational colors sent directly from the quarry."
The company—which is a one-stop-shop for new countertops by offering templating, fabrication, and installation in residential or commercial applications—has been in Louisville for more than 15 years. The new 20,000-square-foot building is perfectly suited for continuing to develop innovative product lines. The technology is fully digitalized and automated.
"Having a robot allows a significant increase in production, while enhancing both precision and the overall product quality," says Kartik Kamat, vice-president of Operations. "The machines will provide a faster turnaround time for Granite America customers. The company's new facility will also bring many jobs to the area."
The new facility is a long-time dream for siblings Deepa Kamat and Kartik Kamat, who together run the company. They grew up wanting a high-tech fabrication facility and they are excited to celebrate their dream coming to fruition.
