StoneLoads launches online marketplace to serve both natural stone quarries and landscape supply yards

A Dayton, TN-based company has just announced the national launch of its online marketplace to “promote additional business successes across the entire natural stone industry by creating a space where professionals on both sides of the transaction process can gain product clarity.”

That’s the way Patrick Wells, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), describes the void that StoneLoads is filling with the rollout of its new offering that has been under development for more than a year and recently completed a successful beta testing phase. By using the platform, natural stone quarries and fabricators across the United States can list full truckloads of product to be purchased by landscape supply yards nationwide, and those potential customers can access a much larger set of vendors.

“One of the biggest challenges facing the natural stone industry for years is a lack of transparency with regards to product availability,” Wells said in this news release (StoneLoads Online Marketplace Release). “StoneLoads provides that remedy. Now quarries and fabricators can list their products online for a national audience of landscape supply yards that are hunting for those exact materials.” Conversely, those landscape supply providers who are seeking product can: (1) find full loads of stone available for pickup immediately; (2) see actual images of materials available for purchase; (3) get realtime updates on product costs; and (4) experience a simplified buying process.

“As a quarry and fabrication CEO myself, I decided to build StoneLoads because I knew firsthand that our industry needed this,” Wells explained. “I’m confident it will yield wins for natural stone businesses of all sizes everywhere in the continental United States.”
