Rock Tops Granite Announces the Grand Opening of a New Store in Lenexa, Kansas

Lenexa, KS (PressExposure) November 17, 2008 -- Rock Tops Granite is a rapidly growing company, specializing in the fabrication and installation of granite and marble countertops. Founded in 2000, they began as a supplier to large home improvement stores. As they shifted their marketing to homeowners, they have been recognized as one of the nation’s fastest growing companies. In the last few years, they have opened 10 new locations throughout the US, including four new stores in the last few weeks. One of their newest stores just opened in Lenexa, Kansas

When the president, Robert Thiede, was recently interviewed, he was asked if he had any concerns about maybe growing too rapidly. He said, “I have no concerns about rapid growth creating a problem. With our new marketing plan in place, coupled with our use of the newest technology for stone processing, I am confident that we can duplicate our business model across the nation. We plan to open several new stores in the next year.”

The advanced technology of CNC (computer numerically controlled) cutting and shaping equipment has provided the ability to cut and shape the edge of the stone quickly and accurately, saving time and money on labor hours. Charlie explained, “We can produce custom countertops with a perfectly finished edge quickly and efficiently, saving thousands of dollars on labor; therefore, we are able to pass this savings onto our customers to produce quality products at a lower cost.”

Robert also brought up another good point as he said, “With our increased unemployment, there are many good people looking for work, so staffing our new stores has not been a problem. Besides being awarded one of the fastest growing companies, Rock Tops has also been acknowledge for being a great place to work. All applicants must pass a very rigid interview process and background check before they are hired. Those who pass are hired and treated well with good pay and a nice benefit package. Quality employees, such as what we require, are hard to find; we want to give them good incentive to remain with us. High employee turnover can kill the success of a company and cost thousands in hiring and training new help.”

Rock Tops Granite has installed over 10,000 countertops in 2008 alone, and they are expanding their business with plans to open several new locations in the US during the next year. Their use of advanced technology is what sets them apart from other granite and marble fabricating companies. Rock Tops Granite serves the Greater Kansas City area, including Shawnee, Lenexa, Prairie Village, Overland Park, Olathe, Gardner, Spring Hill, and neighboring cities and communities.
