Johnson Granite wins industry advertising award

January 27th, 2008 · No Comments

Johnson Granite Inc. on Hiatt Road (also called Landfill Road) just outside Mount Airy won “The Rocky Advertising Award” for 2007 from the Marble Institute of America (MIA).

The Marble Institute recognizes the best advertising and promotional materials submitted by MIA members.

The award was presented to Vice President Brian Johnson for Johnson Granite’s brochure produced by OLA Design Works of Winston-Salem. The brochure shows off designs and installation of custom-crafted granite, marble and natural stone countertops.

Johnson Granite Inc. is a family-owned business. Its experienced employees hand-select high-quality stone slabs for fabrication into countertops for kitchens, bathrooms and other uses. Employing computer technology, the company does custom-design work, including edging, but workers still do the final hand-finishing. Johnson Granite then supervises installation right through cleanup. One of several cost-saving benefits for consumers is that Johnson Granite charges only for the stone it installs, rather than charging customers for an entire slab.

Johnson Granite offers granite in at least 85 colors including Mount Airy White, the unique, highly prized granite quarried in Surry County. The company also fabricates countertops from marble, travertine and limestone, soapstone and cambria and silestone, two quartz products.

Founded in 2000, Johnson Granite employs about 30 people in its plant at 589 Hiatt Road in Surry County. Larry Johnson is the company’s president.
