The Rockhead Group USA was founded by a group of stone fabricators dedicated to ethical and best practices in the industry. A primary requirement of membership is the Natural Stone Institute’s accreditation which is a rigorous examination process including a voluntary OSHA inspection. The group saw the need for a trade group specifically focused on the stone fabrication industry, with ample time dedicated to developing best practices specific to the fabrication of natural stone and quartz.
