Premier Surfaces Used its Owners Knowledge and Philosophy from the White-Collared World and Applied Them to the Fabrication Shop

While Eric Tryon, owner of Premier Surfaces in Atlanta, GA, might have left the corporate world to pursue his own endeavors in the stone industry, he held on to the same business philosophy. Tryon firmly believes solid relationships are the key to success. With that in mind, he has profitably grown his company since it was established in 2002. Today it includes 175 employees over four locations in Atlanta, GA; Chattanooga, TN; and Birmingham and Huntsville in Alabama.

“We are a relationship company,” Tryon tells his staff. “Stone fabrication is just the product we represent.” He feels confident knowing his results speak volumes about the strength of his team and company.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
