Caesarstone Expands Role With ISFA
CHARLOTTE, NC — Caesarstone, the Charlotte, NC-based supplier of quartz surfacing products, has expanded its partnership with the International Surface Fabricators Association (ISFA), the trade organization representing residential and commercial fabricators in 13 countries, the company announced.
The expanded partnership, according to Caesarstone, will help the manufacturer “continue its commitment to leading the industry in healthy and safety standards,” as IFSA recommends its members take full advantage of Caesarstone’s “Master of Stone” training platform, a program aimed at addressing health and safety issues, including silica dust, in the workplace.
“Fabricators are a vital part of Caesarstone’s success, so joining ISFA in their work to help members succeed makes good business sense for our brand,” said Elizabeth Margles, v.p./marketing for Caesarstone North America.
“But it also goes beyond that,” Margles said. “It’s about working together to increase the entire industry’s understanding of how to protect all fabricators from health and safety risks, and to strengthen its future.”
Caesarstone’s free Master of Stone training, launched last year, consists of a series of online modules, as well as related resources, including a good-practice guide, safety data sheet and more. More than 600 fabricators in Canada and the United States have already earned their Master of Stone certificates, Caesarstone said.
“ISFA is very grateful for Caesarstone’s support and the company’s commitment to educating all fabricators, including our members, through the Master of Stone training center,” said Nancy Busch, executive director of ISFA. “Our members are always looking for additional educational opportunities to help further their business, and this extensive, online and free training program will be a great resource for them when it comes to health and safety.”
