JAS attended the 2016 Coverings Stone Fair at the McCormick Convention Center in Chicago, IL, USA from April 18th to April 21st.

The Coverings Stone Fair is the largest event in the vertical sector of stone, granite, marble, slate, quartzite, and travertine in North America with 20,000 visitors. The show is over 350,000 square feet with 900+ exhibitors from Brazil, India, Italy, China, Egypt, Turkey, Israel, Argentina, and Spain.

The outcome of the event was a great success. The rate of JAS’ growth in this vertical has made us a very powerful competitor in the market. 2015 was a record year for our Natural Stone Vertical with 3,107 containers (Northbound Brazil) and 4,346 containers Worldwide; generating more than $17 million in revenue for JAS!

Stone Vertical History:
Since the mid 90’s, North America has been focusing on the countertop sector and has throughout the years reported a significant growth. Espirito Santo is the main producer and exporter of ornamental stones out of Brazil and is responsible for 47% of the overall production and 44% of the exports. They constitute for more than 50% of the Brazilian stone industry (in number of gang-saws and factories, as well as in terms of growth).

The stone sector estimates an average growth in exports of 30% over the next five years and the predicted export volume going to North America for the year 2016 is 55,000 TEUs.

All aspects of 2020 have undoubtedly been different and challenging. Placing an emphasis on the health of those around us became a primary focus and continues to be so, causing changes to traditions and disruptions to annual plans in order to protect those we care about.

At JAS, People have always made the difference and continue to do so. That is why in 2020 JAS made sure to take every precaution to keep our team and our customers safe, while still delivering good cheer. As we are living and learning to navigate this new era; JAS McAllen knew they had to maintain a safe social distance from the recipients of the annual JAS Calendar, but they still wanted to leave customers with a sense of how grateful JAS is to have them be with us for another year. Therefore JAS McAllen decided to make a caravan to deliver calendars in the parking lots of customers where possible.

There will be time to share again, meanwhile we continue to do business at a safe social distance and create new excitement in doing so.

Happy New Year 2021 from the JAS McAllen Team.
