MATERIALS PRODUCTION & PROCUREMENT
Twin Stone prides itself on investigating and uncovering some of the finest and most unusual
products in the world, seeking materials from the coast of Carrara, Italy, to the industrial zones
of Shanghai, China, and opening barred paths in the region of Espirito Santos, Brazil. We
make no commitment without a complete inspection and understanding of the product's origin, manufacturing tolerance and the region's industrial capabilities. Informing our clients of all things discovered, we ensure that project specific selections can be made.
Twin Stone retains a staff of experts in numerous countries to ensure that our clients' expectations are met. Underestimating the production of a natural product can be a critical mistake. Important tasks such as managing the quarrying process, inland logistics, production at manufacturing plants, and meticulously inspecting the material, are responsibilities Twin Stone is very serious about. Not only is the appearance an important matter, but just as important is the manufacturing quality; things such as calibration, orientation and finishes are all key factors in delivering the quality products offered by Twin Stone.
In porcelain and ceramic we offer state-of-the-art plants, and the ability to fabricate custom tile of endless color and design patterns. With a production line capable of manufacturing large quantities in ranges of about 200,000 square feet in just weeks, Twin Stone is able to supply complete projects with short lead times.
Interior installations are at the core of Twin Stone. Installing over 6.5 million square feet of flooring and wall coverings in the past 15 years, and home of a 25 year veteran installer / founder, Twin Stone has an edge unparalleled by any other installation contractor. The Medinas test and inspect each mechanic’s performance, and personally select only the most qualified installers, many mastering slightly different skills than the others. Building crews around a craftsman’s strongest skill and designating each with a well-matched job is a technique used to advance each mechanic’s skill to a level of perfection by practice, thus eliminating the “jack of all trade” results we see too often and contributing to the high level quality work we are proud of and recognized for.
Together, with teams of up to 100 installers, we are able to handle any scope of work, allowing owners to position the perfect crews for each job. From 5-star hotels to celebrity homes, the capacity of Twin Stone’s interior department is unsurpassed.
Fabrication is a keystone in the Twin Stone organization. Originated in the patio of our founder’s home, today Twin Stone’s facility is one city block of high quality production with the capability to supply projects in Tennessee, Atlanta, Florida and through the southeast coast.
Employed in Twin Stone’s shop are master fabricators and skilled operators, all recruited and trained to meet our founder’s product standards and tag team principals, working together so that all shop orders get completed with expert detail and on time. Our fabrication shop is equipped with the finest MADE IN U.S.A. saws, profilers and water jet machinery, producing some of the finest crafted stone work seen today. Dedicated to our manufacturing industry, we keep the bulk of our fabrication “at home,” and with our skilled forces, we are able to adjust and accommodate accelerated schedules as necessary to successfully supply projects in and outside of the state.
Considered with reason to be one of the most complex applications in the industry, installing 200 pound stone slabs 150 feet above public sidewalks is no simple task. Executing an expert design is our aim, but second to none is public safety. Twin Stone engages with only the best national experts in the field for engineering and design, allowing us today the claim of “zero failure.” With an expert labor force and an expert team of professionals, we offer our clients a sophisticated and sound product with the upmost confidence.
Historical landmarks pepper the streets of many Florida cities. Twin Stone is privileged to have been appointed numerous projects conserved by preservation boards–landmarks such as The Ritz Plaza, Seville and The Carlye in Miami Beach to name a few. Depending on the desired end result, a restoration job can involve numerous refurbishment techniques. Many restoration projects require that the finished product mimic the original design. Twin Stone’s tactic is to share information and history about the task at hand, and to assign the job to experienced and talented craftsmen with the hearts of artisans–those that appreciate originality and respect authenticity. By completing each project to the satisfaction of preservation authorities, Twin Stone has proven to own “that talent”… and to possess “that heart.”
