MIA Accredited
Western Marble & Tile Ltd. has earned the coveted designation of Marble Institute of America (MIA) Accredited Natural Stone Fabricator and may now use the official accreditation logo. Accredited Natural Stone Fabricators are companies that fabricate and install natural dimension stone.

To become an Accredited Natural Stone Fabricator by the MIA, a company must have successfully completed three phases of a rigorous application process. Phase one was the completion of a lengthy application that required the applicant company to provide various documents and references which ensure that the company is in compliance with the 10 standards of accreditation as laid out by the MIA Accreditation Commission. Phase two required the company’s qualifying agent to pass a 200-question exam, online or an immersion onsite course. The exam tested the applicant’s knowledge and application of material usage, installation, fabrication, restoration, care and maintenance, administration, legal/contracts, and jobsite and shop safety. Phase three was a comprehensive site visit, which included a facility review, document review, and one or more installation site visits.

James A. (Jim) Hieb, CAE, Executive Vice President/CEO at the MIA said, Western Marble & Tile Ltd. is now able to proudly display the accreditation seal, symbolizing that they are among the finest in the natural stone industry with respect to craftsmanship, safety, and business practices.”
