Graniterock Contractor EXPO biggest and best yet

February 20, 2015
More than 450 people took part in Graniterock’s Contractor EXPOFeb. 20 at the Monterey Hyatt Regency, including 75 vendors from aroundthe world.

After taking a year off from the annual event, Graniterock produced a contractor’s expo that was bigger and better than before.

Among the many vendors were Quikrete, Montana Rock, Basalite, Belgard, Earthworks and several Graniterock branches such as Northern Road Materials, Environmental Services and Customer Service.

The EXPOwas packed with demonstrations, products, experts and informative classes.

Some of the comments from EXPOattendees included:

“You guys are real problem solvers.”

"Your seminar topics were clearly well thought out. I've attended every expo you have had and this was the first that I had to flip a coin with deciding which seminar to attend!"

Robin Steudler,the EXPO's main organizer, said it was an improvement over years past due to the larger venue and variety of products and classes offered.

"I felt that we were becoming too complacent and not offering enough change over the last few years. EXPO2015 proved that we are listening to what the attendees have said they want such as hands-on demonstrations and more exhibitors," Robin said. "I want to extend a hugethank you to everyone from Graniterock that participated in making this event a reality again. What I enjoyed the most was having every division of the Company involved in one way or another. We truly represented to all attendees and each other that we are One Company."
