Granquartz Canada Hosts Industry Safety Meeting in Toronto

March 21, 2012 · 4 Comments

MIA member firm Granquartz Canada hosted a MIA meeting of over 20 stone distributors to talk about safety initiatives for Canadian firms. MIA safety committee members Petar Kefar (Omni Surfaces) and Paolo Mantenuto (Marble & Marble) were also on hand to assist MIA Vice President Jim Hieb provide an overview of 2011 accomplishments, 2012 initiatives, and how to expand the vast array of MIA safety offerings into Canada.

While many in the audience are fierce competitors in the marketplace, they share a common goal of advancing safety for the industry. The consensus was that the success of safety initiatives in the US can be duplicated in Canada and several companies pledged to help advance the cause.

MIA's Jim Hieb commented, "This meeting was strategic and could not have been accomplished without the support of Granquartz Canada and our current Canadian safety committee members, Petar & Paolo." He added, "a follow-up meeting in June 2012 is already scheduled and the teamwork anticipated by many Toronto-based stone companies should benefit the industry for years to come."

    Some time before, I needed to buy a building for my firm but I didn't have enough money and could not order anything. Thank goodness my sister proposed to take the loans from trustworthy bank. Hence, I acted that and used to be happy with my financial loan.
