Cutting Edge Countertops Nominated for Fabricator of the Year Award
Stone World’s Fabricator of the Year Award is notoriously the most important in our industry. Stone World has been honoring this award since 1988, as tradition stands, the winner is honored at StoneExpo in Las Vegas in early February. To say we are humbled, honored and proud to have received a nomination for this year’s award is the understatement. As stated by Stone World, the criteria to qualify for this Award include:
- Cooperation in sharing technology with the industry
- Willingness to pioneer in the use of new technology
- Fostering educational programs for the training of stoneworkers in industry methods
- Promoting technological progress through association work
Granite countertops are made of different types of stone and quartzite. The many variations in the materials used to make granite make it ideal for use in a wide range of environments. Granite slabs are designed to be durable and strong. The material is also highly resistant to everyday stains and other scuffs. Keeping your granite countertops looking perfect all the time, however, takes more than just cleaning occasionally. But with the right resealing methods, you can keep them looking brand new for years to come.
Our very own Brad Burns cannot say enough positive things about working in the industry and raves about the people he has worked with along the way. It’s safe to say the Cutting Edge Countertops’ team makes Brad extremely proud – enough to share in the nomination. Brad said, “the stone industry is filled with passionate people who really care about one another and have the drive to make a difference.”
Alongside this nomination, Stone World published a Q&A with Brad, where he notes what sets Cutting Edge Countertops apart from competitors:
“Cutting Edge Countertops was built on the hub-and-spoke model. All projects are manufactured and staged in our Perrysburg, OH, facility with state-of-the-art equipment and technology to ensure consistent quality countertop products. All project components are pulled and packaged together and delivered daily to our regional service centers for local installation teams.
With six convenient locations in the Midwest, Cutting Edge Countertops is well-suited for further expansion through hub-and-spoke, along with available highway infrastructure.
Additionally, at Cutting Edge Countertops we believe in building strong relationships. This includes listening to our customers’ needs and providing a consistent customer experience throughout the Tri-State region.”
Finally, Brad notes this nomination would not be possible were it not for co-founders Brian Burns and Jeff Erickson, “along with each of Cutting Edge Countertops’ dedicated employees who strive to be the best at their craft every day.”
