  • In-House Manufacturing Capabilities CO218 manufactures all of its veneer and molds in-house. This gives the Company control over timing, costs, quality, and aesthetic, enabling it to manufacture the most realistic and detail oriented stone veneers in the market place within its customers’ time frames. This also enables the Company to provide custom products for customers, which generally have higher profit margins.

  • Superior Mix DesignThe Company’s unique mix design has been specially formulated to increase durability and improve aesthetic.  

  • Superior MoldsCO218 has developed its own manufacturing process that results in the creation of superior quality molds used to manufacture its stone veneer. The Company’s molds are easier to handle and have an increased life span, resulting in significant cost savings.

  • Large Library of MastersCO218 has a large inventory of masters, or the original pieces used to make additional molds over and over again. Having more masters results in fewer repeat stones and leads to more realistic looking stone surfaces.  

  • Diversified Sales Strategy The Company’s products are distributed through multiple sales channels including the Company’s own direct sales force, a multi-state dealer network, and three established retail locations.

  • Turn-Key Services – CO218 offers turnkey installation services making the Company a one-stop shop for stone veneer. The Company’s ability to manufacture its stone in-house and provide installation increases its reliability and allows it to compete on both price and service.
