MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (February 14, 2011) – Cambria, the only producer of natural quartz surfaces in the U.S., announced today that Michigan-based Blasius Inc. is the latest Cambria fabricator business partner to be inducted into their Lexus Partner Program. The Lexus Partner Program was designed by Cambria in 2008 to further strengthen the relationships between Cambria and its fabricator partners as well as provide the highest possible service to consumers. Blasius Inc. is the twelfth fabricator partner in North America to be inducted into the program.
“Cambria is proud to elevate our relationship with Blasius Inc. to our most exclusive partnership offering, the Lexus Partner level,” said Cambria President and CEO, Marty Davis. “Like Cambria, Blasius Inc. is a family-owned company that also shares our commitment to delivering the highest quality product and unparalleled customer service.” Cambria Lexus Partners must meet specific criteria set by Cambria which includes sales success, exceptional quality and customer service, and a commitment to marketing. In return, Lexus Partners enjoy unique benefits from Cambria, including a guaranteed market position through exclusive fabrication in their marketplace and dedicated Cambria sales, marketing and training support.
“We couldn’t be happier about our new Lexus Partner status with Cambria and look forward to promoting the only brand our customers ask for by name,” said Jon Blasius, owner of Blasius Inc. “Blasius Inc.’s Lexus Partner status will strengthen our relationship with Cambria and create mutual growth and success for both companies.”
Cambria is sold to select fabricators across North America through a partnership model that celebrates a common vision and culture. The pinnacle of that model is the Lexus Partner Program, which formalizes Cambria’s commitment to highly evolved fabricator business partnerships that deliver mutual success. Cambria’s Lexus Partner fabricators are committed to innovation, hardwork, are entrepreneurial-minded and want to grow their businesses in partnership with Cambria.
As a leader in design innovation, Cambria offers 83 colors with new designs never before seen in quartz. Cambria has created the look of onyx, marble and granite without compromising all the performance benefits of quartz, such as being stronger than granite and maintenance free. These trendsetting looks have incredible movement and iridescent blues, gold and copper. Complementary colors from the six color collections offer unique opportunities to incorporate multiple colors on a variety of surfaces, creating more depth and character in residential and commercial applications. Cambria is available through builders, designers, architects and kitchen/bath retailers throughout North America.
Cambria is a privately held, family-owned company headquartered in Minnesota. Cambria is one of the few quartz surface plants in the world and the exclusive producer of natural quartz surfaces in the United States. Cambria focuses on quality, innovation and growth. Cambria is sold through a North American network of independent stone fabricator and installation partners that share the company’s commitment to quality and craftsmanship. Products are available to consumers via retail partners throughout North America. Cambria also exports its products throughout the world.
Cambria is a stain resistant, nonporous natural quartz surface that is harder, stronger and easier to care for than other stone surfaces because it does not require sealing with chemical-based conditioners, polishers or wax. Cambria is committed to environmentally friendly business practices and its product is local, durable and plentiful. Cambria products contribute to projects achieving LEED certification, have been NSF International certified as safe for food preparation, and have achieved GREENGUARD for Children and Schools® and Indoor Air Quality Certified®– so there is no safer surface available to consumers.
