Natural Stone. Groundbreaking Solutions.
It all started with a backhoe and a dream. In 1979 at the age of 21, Glenn Kafka purchased a backhoe at a local auction for $8,500. A couple of years later, while chatting with a neighbor around a campfire, he was offered an opportunity to purchase a 40-acre granite pit. Over the past 40 years, Kafka Granite has steadily grown from a supplier of decomposed granite road material into one of the most diverse and robust suppliers of specialty aggregates in North America, crushing over 50 colors of stone in countless sizes. These aggregates are used in a variety of applications, including: pathway material, landscape stone, precast concrete, terrazzo flooring, and many more.
After purchasing a quarry that contained a precious mica-enriched quartzite in many colors, Kafka Granite began to produce natural thin stone veneer in 2018. This dazzling natural stone, along with the other classic Kafka colors our customers know and love, quickly became a unique and diverse line of high-end masonry stone products. Taken from our various quarries throughout North America, the product is handcrafted in the United States. Composed of stunning granite, marble, and quartzite, our thin stone veneer is ideal for interior and exterior applications when you are looking for a show-stopping first impression. Natural stone offers color that won’t wear, fade, or weather over the lifetime of your project, and thin stone veneer drastically reduces shipping and installation costs compared to full-veneer building stone.
Kafka Granite also offers natural stone hardscapes to incorporate into your landscape projects, with classic colors of our sawn cut drywall, thermal-top steps, and sawn thermal flagstone. When you choose Kafka’s high-quality stone products for your retaining wall, steps, or other landscaping project, you can rest assured that you’ve chosen hardscapes that will last.
Kafka Granite’s humble beginnings and family-owned-and-operated business model have evolved into customer-focused product development, delivering some of North America’s most spectacular natural stone from the Earth’s surface to your clients’ dream homes, offices or commercial properties.
