In this video, Matt Hoots talks with Jennifer Prins of Cambria at the International Builders Show/Kitchen & Bathroom Show.

Cambria is introducing 20 new celebratory designs and is leveraging new technologies to mark their 20th anniversary in 2020.  

Check out the creative and sustainable Brittanicca line, made by deconstructing and repurposing an existing design to make something new.  Brittanicca block is made from pieces left over from select slab yields.  Each new slab is a unique art piece, formed of linear strips (watch the video to see!).  The repurposed quartz composite slabs can be installed vertically or horizontally and can be used for many applications, including shower surrounds, wall cladding, fireplace surrounds, in addition to countertops.  

Cambria shares some impressive credentials and certifications on their sustainability page: Among other activities, 100% of the water used for production in Cambria’s processing and fabrication facilities, saving an estimated 1.6 billion gallons annually.  Cambria natural quartz is included in the mindful MATERIALS Library which helps industry professionals make informed purchase decisions. Through the Declare label, the company voluntarily discloses where products come from, what they are made of, and where they go at the end of their life.

Are you looking for countertops for your home or for your projects and clients?  What do you want to know to help with your search?  What would you like to ask Cambria?

I've always been a fan of Cambria. The fact that they are made locally is a great benefit as well.
