Granitech Inc., a stonework company in Elkhart, Ind., that supplies natural granite to a number of high-end motorhome and fifth-wheel manufacturers on a custom basis, broke ground Aug. 5 on a new 4,000-square-foot Design Center in Elkhart.
Located on Old U.S. 20, the store will be the anchor tenant in a 9,900-square-foot retail center built by Rick Farrell and Steve Jones, principals in the development.
In addition to providing greater showroom space, the building will include areas for customers to meet with designers and architects, view samples and make selections. “We supply and install our products throughout Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan,” Farrell noted. “Our new Design Center on the west side of Elkhart will be a central location for all our customers.”
Six-year-old Granitech designs, fabricates and installs natural stone for residential and commercial applications, including countertops, fireplace hearths, bath vanity tops, floor tile, shower surrounds and other applications, according to Farrell.
