By Guest Author Laurie Dunlop - Please forgive me if I don't use the proper vernacular for the stone industry...I am a layman after all. Think of me as your typical customer taking a shop tour.
Ozzy Yilmaz, vice president of operations for Marblex, recently gave a friend and I a personal tour of their stone fabrication factory. He and his team showed us how each piece of equipment worked and explained its benefits. I have to admit, he was so passionate about his work that I was completely fascinated. In fact, I got so immersed in stone fabrication and how this new equipment is revolutionizing the process of custom stone cutting that I came home and gushed about it over dinner that night with my family and was still going on the next morning when I went for a run with a friend. I thought if it was this exciting to me, it would certainly be of interest to others in the stone fabrication industry!
