How To Start Your Own "Manufactured" Stone Business
Sara McIntosh of Rubber Mold Company in Carterville, Mo. says there are a lot of reasons why starting a business producing manufactured stone is a good idea. The mold company has more than 27 years of experience making and selling high quality molds that are used to create durable, beautiful and lightweight man-made stone, which is a hot commodity in today's building industry.
  According to McIntosh, a low initial investment gets you set up with your own molds, and there are never any franchise or royalty fees.
  "No prior experience is required and we can provide full training on how to produce a proven and reliable product," she says. "The best part is that you can make a healthy income with this type of business since there is a shortage in many areas of manufactured stone and builders are having to call upon distant suppliers, which adds to their costs."
  Though many think it's just as attractive as natural stone, manufactured stone is more functional and reduces builder costs since there is no need for footings or wall ties to install it. It's made from cement, lightweight aggregate, and pigmentation.
  Rubber Mold Company's long history means they have the experience to produce "superior, long-lasting, durable molds," using their custom-blended formula that's strictly proprietary to them.
  The molds can make stones in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
