Morningstar Stone and Tile
Morningstar Stone and Tile has been in the countertop business since 1986. Owner and President, Nick Whatley started his career in masonry. When Granite countertops became popular in the 1980’s, Nick decided to start his own fabrication shop in his home garage.
Morningstar prides themselves on high quality materials, fabrication, and installation, along with a proven track record of superior customer service excellence. This starts with the first visit to their showroom and ends with a handshake at the end of each project. Just like Omni Cubed®, they go above and beyond what is expected by providing 100% support after the job is completed, including service needs long after that handshake.
Travis Barton, Morningstar’s Outside Operations Manager, has been with Morningstar since 2002. He’s watched the shop go from manual fabrication to becoming fully digital, both in the shop and on site. “We have always been on the cutting edge of using the best tooling to match our philosophy, including the use of all of Omni Cubed products,” shared Travis.
When asked how Omni Cubed has been able to help or enhance their already existing business practices, Travis said, “Omni Cubed has revolutionized our efforts to build, protect, and transport our often delicate and very heavy materials through our fabrication shop and to the jobsite. We use the Stealth Seamer 90 Degree Auto to fabricate waterfall panels, and all of the Sink Hole Saver models, Mega Jaws and Aqua Jaws to move delicate materials. We use nearly every Omni Cubed product in the installation trucks: Pro Cart AT2, Pro Dolly HD1, Pro Dolly HD2, Mega Jaws, Aqua Jaws, all of the Sink Hole Saver models, and Stealth Seamers to put everything together on site. It’s hard to put a dollar figure on what these tools have saved us in material loss and efficiency over the years. All of the products have changed the way we operate, from making impossible jobs possible, to keeping our employees and the products safe at the same time.”
In closing, Travis shared, “We are so glad Omni Cubed products are available to use in the stone industry. They are high quality, long lasting, well supported, and revolutionary. Omni Cubed is always improving and coming out with new products. I would recommend their products to anyone in this business who wants to step up their game for their employees and customers.”
Thanks Travis and Morningstar for being a great partner and advocate for your customers, your employees, and for Omni Cubed!
