Natural Stone Distributors
Natural Stone Distributors was started by Don Lawrence Sr., Don Lawrence Jr., and David Lawrence in 1996.
Lawrence Tile & Marble was started by Don Lawrence Sr., his wife Shirley Lawrence, and Servicing Contractors Builders and Remodelers since 1958.
In 1981, Lawrence Tile and Marble began their first expansion with their sons David and Don Lawrence Jr. They expanded into the cultured marble industry by opening a manufacturing facility, which did custom manufacturing of such items as Whirlpool tubs, wall panels, and countertops.
A second expansion occurred in 1996, when the Lawrence’s recognized an increasing popularity in the granite countertop industry. Researching this newest trend allowed them to see firsthand the issues that were already arising in the industry, such as, customers ordering their countertops based off small samples, usually ordering them from far across the country, and them not matching the materials they had installed in their homes.
Understanding that each natural stone has its own unique color, shade, tone, and veining, the Lawrence’s decided to open a new company under the management of son Don Lawrence Jr. Thus, Natural Stone Distributors was born.
With the customers best interest in mind, Don Jr. decided to import the materials direct from quarries all over the world. The customer could view the actual piece of granite that they would have installed in their homes. This service has been appreciated by customers and fabricators alike.
Natural Stone Distributors is currently located at 10545 Hwy 64. We proudly display nationally and internationally known tile, granite, marble, and quartz products that were previously not available in our area.
In 2010, the Lawrence’s, expecting an upturn in the economy, remodeled and expanded their showroom with exclusive products. This also opened the opportunity for a third-generation to move the company into the future.
For over 58 years, the Lawrence name has instilled trust, honesty, and satisfaction in their customers. The continued growth of the company is a direct result of their dedication to their customers and the industry as a whole.
