SolidSurface.com is celebrating its 10th year as an online source for purchasing decorative solid surface sheet materials, tools, accessories and custom Corian vanity tops. The company features popular solid surface brands such as DuPont Corian, LG HI-MACS, Aristech Avonite, Samsung Staron, Formica, Wilsonart, Hanwha Hanex and Meganite.
Using countertop remnants lying around in the garage, co-founders, Ed and Kyle Carpenter, a father and son team, began creating one-of-a-kind applications with solid surface. They also began fashioning pieces into cutting boards and selling them on eBay. After realizing they could work smarter, not harder, by selling remnant pieces, they launched SolidSurfaceSurplus.com. In early 2007, they formed the parent company SurfaceNet LLC and, in May of 2007, acquired the URL “SolidSurface.com.” They then started working directly with manufacturers and distributors to source overstock and premium grade material, continuing to build out their various product lines.
More than 60,000 shoppers per month visit their site, ranging from DIYers to residential and commercial remodelers and fabricators to woodworkers. They purchase from several categories of products, learn about creating with solid surface material and sometimes order a custom Corian vanity top that can be ready to ship in 10 business days or less.
Future plans for SurfaceNet LLC and SolidSurface.com include a new website launch planned within the next 12 months, expanding the vanity top program and custom fabrication services, adding quartz and other alternative surfacing options, and building even stronger supplier relationships, all of which are intended to further enhance the customer’s overall purchasing experience.
