The Cambria Legacy

Cambria has become something remarkable: an embodiment of a family-owned company dedicated to American-made quality. But our history is not a straight line.

Cambria President and CEO Marty Davis realized the magic of quartz on day one. But, as for the company’s beginnings, “It just kind of happened.”

It all began when Marty Davis’ friend put him onto this new investment opportunity. The Davises studied the opportunity and ultimately Mark Davis, Marty’s father, made a personal investment in a northern Minnesota business start-up in the late ’90s. They loved the company’s technology and quartz product, but didn’t know much more than that about the operation. But taking risks was something the Davis family was familiar with. Entrepreneurial instinct is a family legacy that began with Stan and Mark Davis, who owned small creameries that eventually led to the formation of Davisco Foods International, an international leader in the dairy industry.

Stan Enters the Butter Business

Stan Davis enters the butter business by taking an apprenticeship in Norseland, Minnesota. The work is close to home and gives him the opportunity to learn a trade. “It was hard work...better than no work! It was the steadiest job in town. Everybody else would be laid off and the creameries got to operate. It was good work, it paid good wages and I look back on it as a wise decision.”
