Headline: Striking Stone a local family run small business stone engraver is relocating for growth
After 10 years, husband and wife team of Striking Stone, the valley's premier stone engraver, is making the leap to a larger studio.
Phoenix, Arizona – Beginning April 5th, Striking Stone is moving to 21630 N. 9th Ave., Suite #105, Phoenix, AZ 85027.
Since opening a custom stone and brick engraving business in November 2010 during a large economic downturn it seemed only fitting to grow during this most recent difficult COVID19 year.
This past year we have fielded countless calls from grieving families as they rush to memorialize loved ones that have passed due to COVID complications with non-traditional natural garden stone and plaques. On a positive note, this year has also seen a marked increase in address markers as homeowners invest more in their homes with custom upgrades.
"Seeing this company grow over the years has been wonderful," noted Jeffrey (Oakley) Rolwing, Striking Stone's Master Craftsman. "It's been a lot of work but a lot of joy. This larger space means we can provide MORE custom engraved stone product locally that the Phoenix area has needed for quite some time. Being able to give back to the community is also a fantastic bonus!"
