Coronado Stone is adding a sixth stone veneer and thin brick operation after closing on the equipment and property assets of Crown Hill Stone Inc. The producer is converting Crown Hill’s Westfield, N.Y., plant for production of a full line of Coronado units, aiming for shipments to begin the fourth quarter.

The site will support expansion of sales into the Northeastern, Mid-Atlantic and Eastern Canada markets, and join Coronado Stone’s five plants in California, South Carolina and Texas. “Sales continue to grow as we expand our market share across the United States and Canada,” the company notes. “The new facility will allow us to accelerate our growth by providing lower landed costs, shorter lead times, and better overall freight logistics to our customers within the serviced area.”
