Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center -  Anaheim, CA

The Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center serves as a gateway to local attractions.  The structure’s bold, contemporary design incorporates 35,000 square feet of epoxy terrazzo.  Using only two color swatches along with a simple yet strategically placed floor design, the pattern handsomely addresses the architecture and is properly scaled for the magnitude of the space. The floors play their role to perfection, as a pedestal for the structure and directing the focus to the sky.  The sheen on the floors is precisely gauged to soften the strong light.

Design Notes:  The elegance of this one-of-a-kind 1,500-square-foot installation speaks for itself. The micro-quartzite aggregate supports the design and keeps the eye focused on the original chain-link pattern, staid but dynamic, contemporary yet classic in its choice of colors. The black elements, of the interwoven geometrical shapes, were formed using water-jet technology and the white sections were poured-in-place. The great thing about water-jet technology is that it allows for the creation of a monolithic floor with intricate patterns without expansion joints or metal strips for separating colors.

The Story Behind the Stone – Verde Antique

img_9535_720

Verde Antique, the world’s finest serpentine, is born right here in the USA and has been quarried in the green mountains of central Vermont for over a 100 years! Verde Antique is often referred to as “marble”, while it has the warmth and look of marble, it is actually harder and less porous than many types of granite. It’s low absorption rate and flexural strength makes it a favorite among architects, designers and builders on projects throughout the world. It can be found in kitchens, courthouses, museums and many commercial buildings.

img_9534_720

Verde Antique’s signature green and metallic flecked surface, complimented by white and light green veining, makes it a widely sought element in distinctive residential projects. Every block that’s quarried has unique features to complement your project. Unlike marble, Verde Antique naturally stands up to culinary acid exposure and resists staining. In fact, over 100 years of Verde Antique interior and exterior installations worldwide still retain their original finishes and beauty. Being family owned and operated in Rochester, Vermont, along with strategically placed warehouses in nearby Hancock; ensure the time honored quality of local Vermont craftsmanship for your special project. This also allows the ability to supply custom sizes and different finishes, with short lead times – from small scale local kitchens, to major international projects.

Please help us welcome – Vermont Verde Antique!

The Story Behind the Stone – Iceberg Extra

IMG_1764 Some say it’s better to be lucky than good, and that may be true – but no matter what, we believe hard work always pays off in the end! Iceberg Extra has a similar story to tell on how this wonderful white quartz was discovered. Our good friend and explorer, Maxwell, was on a quest in Brazil searching for Emerald Quartzite. The land he was exploring is very well known for the emerald and therefore very well guarded. The heavy abundance of emerald bandits made his journey very dangerous; however, what he ended up finding is a story for the ages.

10660343_848399735200914_2862830486383917078_n

Located in the NW region of Bahia, Brazil – Maxwell was lost in the middle of nowhere, when all of a sudden; he stumbled upon the largest deposit of white quartz in the entire world. His loooong adventure and hard work finally paid off in LARGE dividends as this quarry of white quartz is unlike anything anyone has ever seen. Production out of this quarry is very limited due to the level of difficulty to get to this desolate area. Our exclusive relationship with Maxwell gives us first priority when it comes to looking at their most exclusive blocks. Come see the finest white quartz in the world – Iceberg Extra .

The Story Behind the Stone – Statuario Cava 103

ed7605b1639cf9fcd5756048055bf934

Equivalent to the batch number on a bottle of well aged scotch, the Statuario Cava 103 stamps the same type of exclusive richness. The “103” originates from the name of the quarry which produces this most sought after white marble. The historical quarry, Calocara 103, sits high up in a mountain and overlooks the beautiful city of Carrara, Italy.

Batch 103 is known for its stark white background and medium grain structure. The balance of its veins, coupled with its evenly distributed pattern, is what makes these set of blocks so extraordinary, proclaiming them the king of all whites! Our generational relationships allow us exclusive rights to the first selection of blocks. This is how we ensure that you will be receiving the most luxurious slabs of Statuario Cava 103.

Mosaic Vibes

It White Carrara Select - Hexagon

We’re certainly feeling the hexagon vibes lately! Lets first start by saying this is not a recent trend and instead of “jumping” on the hexagon bandwagon, we decided to drive it. This may come as a shock, but hexagon tiles never really went out of style! This uniform pattern has been around since the early 1900′s, recently gaining more and more popularity in the design world.

Our Monte Bianco Collection offers the hexagon tile in 3 sought after white marble shades: Calacatta Gold Extra, Statuario White Extra & Italian White Carrara Select.  Also available in 2 finishes: the ever popular high gloss polished & the smooth “velvety to the touch” trendy honed finish.

So simple and yet so eye catching. The hexagon pattern tends to create a dappled effect by every other tile featuring a different shade of the white marble.  Perfecting the perfect backsplash in any room.

You can let the hexagon pattern shine all on its own or pair it with your favorite tile to achieve a magical combination! Perfect for a bathroom or kitchen inspiration.

Terrazzo & Marble Rebranding

Dear Valued Customers,

Terrazzo & Marble Supply Companies is proud to announce the launch of our new company logo. Our business has grown and evolved over the past 75 years, and as we just became 100% employee owned, we felt it was time for a change. This logo shift represents a commitment to our brands ongoing evolution.

Print

We are proud of our rich history, which is why we incorporated a shade of our “teal” for coloring. Our teal represents all the sweat equity that has been put into this company from day one which makes us who we are today. We added some diamond faced lines that represent images of stone slabs and also to reflect on our architectural value that each of our stone and terrazzo divisions represent on the many elaborate projects that have been facilitated.

This wasn’t a decision that was made lightly. There were months of hard work and input that was taken into consideration from everyone here at Terrazzo & Marble. The main goal was to have a logo that matched our products, our culture and the exciting future ahead of us. Additionally, this logo is a commitment to our customers and community that we are devoted to delivering the best products and services the industry has to offer.

In the upcoming months we have to update all of our marketing literature, online presence, material, etc with the new logo. We are aware that changing a logo is a process that can involve many steps and take some time, so we will finalize everything gradually. We appreciate your kind support and invite you to follow Terrazzo & Marble Supply Companies on our social media sites for updates and future announcements.

Regards,

Mark J. Konrad

A Word From Jody Rotondo

My Friends,

It gives me great pleasure to share with you some very exciting news regarding Terrazzo & Marble Supply Companies. On February 1st, 2016 T&M officially became 100% employee owned, providing us the framework of success for generations to come. Our transition to 100% ESOP is just the latest chapter in our remarkable story that began over 75 years ago. Our ESOP journey began in 1997 when I was investigating ways to ensure my mother a stable future in her advancing age. I saw this plan as a unique long term option for my family’s legacy by offering a 30% share of T&M’s stock to our employees. My vision was to join the ranks of many other great companies that shared the same goal of one day becoming 100% employee owned.

The most common question asked over the past two weeks has been – What does this mean for Jody Rotondo? It’s an honor to say that I will be performing the same duties as I have in the past, to help guide an already experienced management team into new and exciting directions, while maintaining our same principles that got us to where we are today. My passion in life is to make this company stronger every day and to provide the best products and customer service the industry has to offer. It brings me great comfort knowing that the company I grew up loving is in the very best hands, our wonderful employee owners.

I would like to take this opportunity to mention that this day could not be made possible without the likes of some great individuals, which I truly feel built the foundation of this wonderful company. I would like to give praise to those of: Joe Neitlich, Bill Byers, Jerry Beckley, Willie Schneider and most of all, my father John Rotondo, who taught me to always strive to be the best you can be for yourself and our company.

In closing, our employee owners would like to welcome any questions you may have as we strive together to make this company and community stronger each and every day. Thank you for everything you have done to make T&M the company we are today and most importantly, thank you in advance for all the support in our exciting new future.

 

Best Personal Regards,

Jody Rotondo
