Cambria American-made and family-owned company, committed to the well-being of customers, team, community, and the environment. Company takes concrete steps in transportation, water usage, power generation, lighting design, tooling, and materials to help safeguard the land and its people for generations to come.
Quartz, a unique and precious resource. Cambria prides itself on transforming quartz into breathtaking surfaces for home interiors. To promote sustainability, Cambria’s quartz is mined at a company-owned mine. Quartz particles are extracted from crushed stone, not mined from the ground in blocks. Cambria mine quartz particles through crushed stone instead of extracting full slabs from the earth. Mining sites are backfilled and the land is restored after the quartz is extracted. 100% of the power used at mine is hydroelectric.
Transportation. Cambria use rail and minimize the use of trucks when transporting raw materials to warehouse.
Water. Cambria recycle 100% of water used for production which saves 1.6 billion gallons annually. On-site storm drainage pond provides water for the grounds of the processing facility.
Tooling. All diamond-metal tooling is refurbished and reused. Cambria refurbish and restore the tools for an additional 2,000 lineal feet and repeat this process up to seven times.
Quality Control. Cambria evaluate prework and invest in state-of-the-art technology to minimize slab rework. Heavely investition in quality control to produce the highest quality product.
Company has a crushing facility that processes any unused Cambria for reuse. Some of this material is reused for Cambria products. The remaining is repurposed for community road materials and construction needs.
