Why ISFA?

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.

Many fabricators have learned the value of diversification in their operations, but Lycos took the idea in a significantly different direction than what may come to mind. The branching out of the company has put it in a somewhat uniquely successful position, but before examining how Lycos, Inc. took its business to a whole new level, an understanding of the company’s history is critical.

Owner Jon Taylor first came across solid surface in 2004 when he was installing countertops on a spec home he was building. Instantly intrigued, he decided to attend various fabrication training programs around the country to learn how to work with the material and learn more about the surfacing industry. Soon after, he was fabricating solid surface countertops for the residential market. When the housing market crashed in the mid-2000s, he decided he no longer wanted to work in residential. In 2007, he started Lycos, Inc.
