What a commotion we created last week when we published the retail price of our materials on our website. The trade, such as builders, architects and designers as well as consumers welcomed the change but the loudest complaint came from our customers, the fabricators. Of course, we have changed the way the final price is presented to the customers, although the price itself hasn't changed. Kitchen countertops will continue to cost roughly the same but now the consumer will be more knowledgeable about how their money is spent.
The most common question asked was: "Will you sell direct?". Our answer is: "When it makes sense for the customer". For a homeowner renovating a kitchen or building their new house, it really does not make financial sense. They would be purchasing full slabs and all the waste, taking ownership of the product with all the risk that it entails, and they would not be prepared to handle or transport the slabs properly and safely. However, for some of the trade- developers, builders and kitchen dealers- it could make sense depending on the business arrangement that they have with their fabricators.
