Castia Stone Inc is seeing a dramatic increase in their activities since their purchase by Concrete Results Inc back on May 27, 2010.
Castia Stone has added two licensed manufacturers of the innovative new concrete exterior siding including Bassco Caststone of Elkmont, AL and Castia by DKI, Inc. located in Gardiner, NY. Both companies specialize in producing high quality cast stone, GFRC, and architectural precast products. Castia Stone production will begin for both companies in January 2011.
In addition to Castia by DKI, Inc. and Bassco Caststone, the licensing team at Castia Stone are in discussions with three other large regional producers and are working towards securing these producers by the end of January. Once completed, Castia Stone will have a national manufacturing and distribution network in place.
Castia Stone will also be making its debut at the upcoming NAHB International Builders Show in Orlando on January 12-15th 2011. The show will feature a full scale display of Castia Stone's innovative rainscreen technology along with an entire series of new color blends. Castia Stone will also be introducing their newest profile Flame Cut Stone, which replicates the look and feel of natural blue stone after being treated with high intensity flame to enhance the surface texture.
Later that month, Castia Stone, along with its sister company InnovaCast Inc, will be exhibiting at the National Precast Concrete Association's annual feature event, The Precast Show, being held in Charlotte, NC on January 27-29, 2011. Castia Stone will be actively seeking to secure manufacturers who are currently producing high quality precast concrete products and are looking to expand their product offering and leverage their current capital investments. Castia Stone can easily be produced in both an automated or manual manufacturing environment.
In early February 2011, Castia Stone will be introducing a similar line of products specifically targeting the needs of commercial and industrial builders. These components are larger in scope and more naturally adapt to the unique construction needs of the marketplace. Castia Stone has also recently completed a barracks project for the US Department of the Army at Fort Wainwright, Alaska.
Alice Muratore, owner of Castia Stone stated, "We are truly excited about the caliber of our licensed producers, the new colors and textures, and our upcoming trade show activities. During 2011 we will be actively promoting Castia Stone to homebuilders, homeowners, and remodeling companies to show them our product is not just beautiful and quick to install, but also better for the building by virtually eliminating the potential for moisture or mold to build up in the wall."
