Vetrazzo Recycled Glass
Vetrazzo recycled glass surfaces were hatched in Berkeley, CA in 1996. A materials scientist, Don McPherson, pursuing his PhD combined recycled glass and a cement binder to create a sustainable, polished countertop. His company was eventually acquired by 3 California Bay Entrepreneurs who streamed-lined the manufacturing process and subsequently sold to today's owners, Polycor, the largest natural stone manufacturer in North America. Vetrazzo continues to hold root in the U.S.A. Truly a great American innovation that provided solutions for our communities, our environment, and the built environment around the world with touch of aesthetic splendor.
