Fabricator Profile: Distinctive Surfaces of Florida

Posted on 05 December 2014 by cradmin

main_prod_lrg01Distinctive Surfaces of Florida is what happens when a son successfully follows in the footsteps of his father. More than 37 years ago, Michael Beasley founded Distinctive Surfaces, Inc. in Columbus, Ohio. The business specialized in solid surface and laminate countertops, and Michael Beasley, Jr. learned all about countertop fabrication as a child. When he moved to Sarasota, Fla., 20 years ago, he established his own fabrication business: Distinctive Surfaces of Florida.

In the beginning, Mike Jr. primarily fabricated laminate and solid surface just like his father’s company, but he soon began to branch out by offering quartz and granite countertops. Later, Distinctive Surfaces of Florida dropped laminate but continues to fabricate granite, solid surface, quartz and other surfacing materials.

After becoming established in Sarasota, Beasley worked on further growth by practicing the values taught to him by his father: quality, fast turnaround, honesty and respect. Eventually, this guided the company to even greater levels of success, and he was able to expand the business into three other markets, Tampa, Tallahassee and Fort Myers, all in the midst of the Great Recession.

Unlike many other fabricators, Beasley has not focused on the use of automated processes and equipment. Instead, he concentrates on hiring the right people through a thorough interview process.
