Cambria Natural Quartz Surfaces and FloForm Countertops Form New Exclusive Partnership

    Local Company is First to Become a Preferred Cambria Lexus Partner in

    MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 20 /CNW/ -- Cambria, the only producer of natural
quartz surfaces in the U.S., is proud to announce that FloForm Countertops
located in Winnipeg, Edmonton and Calgary, Manitoba, and Regina and Saskatoon,
Saskatchewan is the first Cambria fabricator business partner to be inducted
into their Lexus Partner Program.
    Cambria is sold to select fabricators across North America through a
partnership model that celebrates a common vision and culture.  The pinnacle
of that model is the Lexus Partner Program, which formalizes Cambria's
commitment to highly evolved fabricator business partnerships that deliver
mutual success.  Cambria's Lexus Partner fabricators are committed to
innovation, hard work, are entrepreneurial-minded, and want to grow their
businesses in partnership with Cambria.
    Cambria Lexus Partners must meet specific criteria set by Cambria that
includes sales success, exceptional quality and customer service, and a
commitment to marketing.  In return, Lexus Partners enjoy unique benefits from
Cambria, including a guaranteed market position through exclusive fabrication
and distribution in their marketplace; and dedicated Cambria sales, marketing
and training support.
    "Cambria is committed to furthering already strong relationships with
key, high-quality fabricators throughout the United States and abroad. 
Fabricator relationships with highly capable business operators that work,
provide mutual benefit, and result in exceptional first quality product
delivery to the marketplace," said Martin Davis, Cambria President and CEO. 
"Together, Cambria and FloForm Countertops have built a deep relationship
based on integrity and sound business principles.  The Lexus Partner
designation further elevates and solidifies our respect for, and partnership
with FloForm Countertops."
    "We are honored to be among the first Cambria business partners to be
inducted into the Lexus Partner Program," said Ted Sherrit, owner of FloForm
Countertops.  "We value our relationship with Cambria; they have provided us
with a brand and quality product we feel good about and treat us as a true
partner in building our businesses together.  We're excited about our
collective futures."
    As a leader in design innovation, Cambria offers more colors with unique
design capabilities than any other surfacing material. Complementary colors
from the Desert and Quarry collections offer unique opportunities to
incorporate multiple colors on a variety of surfaces, creating more depth and
character in a home.  Cambria is available through builders, designers,
architects and kitchen/bath retailers throughout all of North America.
    Strong, Safe, Certified and Environmentally Friendly
    Cambria is a stain resistant, nonporous surface that is harder, stronger
and easier to care for than other stone surfaces because it does not require
sealing with chemicals. Cambria is also certified by NSF International as safe
for use as a food preparation surface -- there is no safer surface available
to consumers.
    Cambria recycles and recovers 100 percent of the water used in its
production processes through unique settling and filtering techniques. In
addition, Cambria surfaces do not off-gas and contain zero formaldehyde or
volatile organic compounds (VOCs).  Cambria surfaces have been tested for
radon and radiation emissions by Air Quality Sciences, Inc. (AQS), an
International Organization for Standard (ISO) 9001:2000 registered and ISO
17025 accredited Indoor Air Quality Company.  The test confirms that Cambria
Natural Quartz Surfaces(TM) have no emissions.
    Cambria surfaces are GREENGUARD for Children and Schools(R) certified and
GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified(R). Cambria Natural Quartz
Surfaces(TM) may help projects achieve LEED points towards certification in
the Indoor Environmental Quality category and/or the Materials and Resources
category of various LEED Green Building Rating Systems.
    Primarily made from North American quartz, and as the only producer of
natural quartz surfaces in the United States, Cambria has a lower carbon
footprint when compared to other quartz products that are largely produced in
the Middle East, Asia and Europe and require greater transportation and carbon
resources in route to market.
