May 14, 2019

FORT LAUDERDALE, Release: 5/14/2019
For Immediate Release

Acquisition of three Florida showrooms marks The Stone Collection’s foray into the East Coast

FLORIDA – The Stone Collection, a leading importer and distributor of high-quality natural stone and luxury hard surfaces, continues its expansion efforts with the acquisition of Florida-based Marble of the World, adding three showrooms to its already existing locations in Denver, Dallas, Fort Worth, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City.

The expansion reflects over a decade of success and growth for The Stone Collection, which has quickly grown to include nine locations in five states. With ongoing considerations for further expansion in Florida and in the southern United States, the company’s acquisition of Marble of The World has only bolstered its reputation as one of the largest and most diverse suppliers of natural stone slabs in the nation.

Founded in 1985, Marble of the World is a leading natural stone distributor in the Sunshine State. With locations in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm City, it is a premier destination for South Florida interior designers, builders, and homeowners. Marble of the World’s showrooms feature state-of-the-art facilities and an impressive inventory of quality natural stone slab, tiles, and accessory items.

Marble of the World will continue to operate under the Marble of the World brand, yet customers will now benefit from an expanded inventory, an enhanced selection, and an improved customer experience.

“We search the world over to bring our clients the most beautiful selection of natural stone products. We are committed to providing excellence in service and a truly unique buying experience,” said Managing Director for the Stone Collection, Mike Hitchcock. “With this acquisition, The Stone Collection continues to set a higher standard in purchasing stone and tile.”
