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.

While many fabrication businesses have histories rooted in cabinetry or related industries, the story behind The Countertop Factory Midwest (TCF) took a much different path.TMCF Geoffrey and Bill

The founders of the business, Geoffrey Gran (pictured left) and Bill Heuer (pictured right), have been best friends since high school, and after graduating college they lived together in Chicago pursuing their respective careers in sales.

A few years later, the two parted ways when Heuer went to Georgetown University to earn his MBA and Gran evolved his career into consulting. After finishing his time at Georgetown, Heuer moved to Cincinnati and went to work for Proctor & Gamble, managing high-profile products and programs while Gran became a founder of a start-up company.
