Randy Wiles and Bill Dubeau opened Capital Granite in May 2006 with a vision to help enhance the beauty and value of homes and businesses throughout the state, by providing the best natural stone products. “If you surround yourselves with great quality people and strive for perfection in everything you do, how can a business fail?” said Wiles, Company President. “We don’t take the easy way out, as our goal is to be recognized as the best in the business. We’re family owned and operated. We take care of our employees and we take care of our customers.”
Our rapid growth proves that Randy’s philosophy serves both Capital Granite and our customers very well. In 2006, we worked out of a small shop in Vassar and a satellite showroom in Harbor Springs. Just two years later, in 2008, we needed more space, so we moved to larger showrooms in Bridgeport and Petoskey. Even in years when Michigan’s economy faltered, we saw growth.
Attention to detail and hand craftsmanship on every job sets us apart from our competition. While much stone work today is completed by automated machines, we have preserved an older tradition of performing detail work by hand. Machines simply cannot match the quality that a skilled craftsman can achieve.
Our exclusive template and installation crews also allow us to maintain a reputation for excellence all the way from the beginning to the end of the process. We believe it is important that you know who will measure and install your job after it’s fabricated. Purchasing a natural stone product is an investment in time and money, so we strive to constantly exceed customer expectations.
Our Bridgeport location is the main hub of operation and offers a showroom, an outdoor slab warehouse as well as our main fabrication shop. The Petoskey location offers similar accommodations with a showroom and a newly-opened indoor slab warehouse.
