QUEBEC CITY – Polycor, a natural stone quarrier, is expanding into an entirely new market segment with the launch of its new Hardscapes & Masonry (H&M) product line debuted last week at the Hardscape North America trade show in Louisville, Kentucky.
The new product line was formed via mergers with Swenson Granite Works, Indiana Limestone Company and most recently Elliott Stone. Polycor is leveraging these companies’ combined centuries of experience to launch the new line. It brings the aesthetics and durability of natural stone to the hardscapes market with easy-to-install products including pavers, pool coping, steps and treads, veneers, walls and caps, edging, accents, posts and ornamentals. Polycor Hardscapes & Masonry products are 100% natural stone sourced and manufactured in the U.S.
“From the curb to the backyard, using natural stone truly pays for itself,” said John Machunis, the vice president of Polycor H&M sales. “We are confident and feel very strongly that our natural stone products will answer the market’s demand for organic materials with very low VOC emissions and impact on the environment. Not only is natural stone sustainable, it also meets the aesthetic and performance needs of modern design and, in many cases, (is) easy to install.”
Polycor natural stone hardscapes and masonry products are well-suited for landscaping and outdoor applications that withstand freeze-thaw cycle in northern climates and the scorching heat of southern summers. Natural stone products also resist cracking, flaking and discoloration, maintaining their natural and unique appearance throughout their lifespan.
