Membership: Invitation Only

Are you a Rockhead waiting to be found?

While Rockheads candidates are typically registered to the RGU, we are open to self-nomination. Just fill out the contact form below. A member of our team will contact you to discuss our high standards and eligibility criteria.

Rockhead Group USA, LLC  membership is unlike any trade group you may belong to. Unlike other groups, Rockhead Group  USA has a laser focus: return on member investment. The “Rockheads” are the thinking man’s trade group; the council is comprised of only top executives/owners of high  volume stone fabrication shops. Rockheads leave the association work (accreditation, continuing education, charitable endeavors, and legislative advocacy) to the industry associations. Instead we focus on raising the bar in the stone industry through best practices, business training, and benchmarking.

The Rockhead Group may not be right for you. The group demands open dialogue, idea sharing and financial transparency. The group eligibility requires a commitment to excellence and ethical practice, as demonstrated by the Marble Institute of America’s Accreditation requirement.* Benefits also include qualified commercial leads, unbelievable vendor discount and cash rebate programs, and consolidation opportunities. To find out if you may be a candidate for the Rockhead Group USA, LLC fill out the contact form below and a member will contact you to discuss eligibility and a potential invitation.

* If your company is not MIA accredited it has 24 months from membership approval to complete the accreditation process.

  • Thank you for your interest in the Rockhead Group USA, LLC [RGU] , a privately owned trade council of the Best in Class stone fabricators. We have membership requirements that are intended to maintain the integrity of the group, including MIA accreditation within the first 24 months of membership (if you are not already accredited). Your application will go through a vetting process, which may include a background check and the completion of a required cultural assessment. Just as we want to ensure that you are a good fit for RGU, the assessment will assist you in determining if the RGU is a good fit for your firm.

    The application fee is $7500 if you have one fabrication shop, $10,000 if you have 2 shops and $15,000 for 3 or more which is due within 45 days of your approval notice.

Dependent upon your join date your second year dues will br pro-rated to reflect the remaining months in the membership year which is January- December. After your pro-rated year dues are billed in December and due by January 31st of each year. Payment arrangements for dues are considered on a case by case basis however the application fee must be paid in full prior to the receipt of member benefits. Our benefits package far exceeds the application fee and annual dues. Our benefits package includes direct cash rebates payable to your organization and significant products and services discounts, as well as access to our member-priced private label brands. However, the true benefit of our organization is its collective wisdom, best practices sharing and historical benchmarking data; all of which are priceless.

    Your firm joins the organization and you determine who will be the designated representative, however, designated representatives must be owners, vice-presidents, presidents, CEOs or COOs of the organization. We do allow up to two secondary members at no additional cost if you wish to designate a partner, sales, or operations manager.
