The story of husband and wife team, Lester Swick and Jean Marie Schneider who are partners in the Custom Marble & Granite, the granite countertops experts,
since its opening in 2006.
Les began his career in the stone industry as a laborer more than two decades ago. His natural talent propelled his career from laborer to superintendent in record time. Les worked in the commercial side of the stone industry for 15 years before starting his own commercial stone installation company. Lester’s diverse experience
has taught him to set all types of stone, including marble; granite; limestone; travertine; split face and many more.
Les traveled around the country year after year working on commercial projects in New Jersey, California, Texas, Indiana, Kentucky, South Carolina, Connecticut and finally settled in Butler PA after completing many jobs in Pittsburgh.
I am a native New Yorker, I spent the years after college helping start and grow small businesses while I was working in a small business development company. After a decade of helping others grow their business I applied my talents to a family business and worked along side my Dad until not long after 9-11 devastated the economy in NYC.
In 2006, we decided to create a residential stone granite countertop fabrication company and Custom Marble & Granite was born.
We have created a business that is wide in its scope. It has something for every project, big or small. We work with industry professionals and home owners.
For our customers who are already working with cabinet makers, remodelers and designers, we happily work with them as we have for years.
For customers who don't have professionals to work with, or who don't know who to call, we have a suggestion list.
For the customer who wants a turn key solution, our designers and consultants will be happy to take over the reins to provide you a seamless process.
Our ability to design, create and install intricate stonework provides our customers with conveniences and savings.
Lester often travels to Brazil to hand select the new granite & soapstone for Custom Marble & Granite . This not only ensures that our customers are getting excellent product but the different and a unique color selection.
The Custom Marble & Granite staff are available for private consultations to help you make just the right decisions.
Thank you for taking the time to read our story. We look forward to working with you.
