At Kanawha Stone Company, it is our belief that a company’s culture matters just as much as the work it does.

We believe that a positive company culture has the ability to have a positive impact on the community around us.

We do this through holding fast to a set of family values that has helped to drive our company from Day One. These are values that we strive to include in everything we do, and that we feel are what has made Kanawha Stone Company such a recognized enterprise for over four decades.
