ISFA stands for the International Surface Fabricators Association, and that's exactly what we are.  Our membership is global, representing fabricators from 13 different countries, and ISFA fabricators are the best of the best, adhering to the ISFA code of ethics, and ISFA's fabrication standards.  ISFA is the only surfacing trade association with published standards for both Solid Surface and Quartz fabrication.  Additionally, our members fabricate all surfaces and participate in both residential and commercial construction projects.  From horizontal surfaces like countertops and desktops, to vertical walls and partitions, to elaborate and highly customized applications, ISFA members are responsible for making the world a little more beautiful, one surface at a time.  Aside from the honor and accolades of being an ISFA professional, members benefit from a variety of education and networking programs, an affiliate program with exclusive member discounts, and peer to peer mentoring.  ISFA was founded upon the principal of "members helping members" and this practice is just as vibrant and relevant today as it was at it's inception in 1996.  If you'd like to learn more, and be considered for ISFA membership, we welcome you to complete our online application.

CCS MR Team Pic

Carolina Custom Surfaces (CCS) was founded in 1995 by Rudy Hoch. Rudy and his wife Phyllis bought the manufacturing assets of a small cultured marble company in Randleman, N.C. and CCS was born. Under Rudy’s leadership the company made cultured marble vanities, shower systems and bathtubs. It also began to produce its own brand of solid surface called Carolite.
In 2000, CCS relocated to Greensboro, N.C., to accommodate the company’s growth and to be closer to its primary builder market.

Today, the company produces about 750 sq. ft. of finished surfacing material a day, with the jobs split up among its various products. Quartz and stone makes up 65 percent of its work, solid surface 29 percent and cultured marble 6 percent of the material processed.
