Dakota Granite Company, Inc.
In The Beginning -- Dakota Granite Co. was incorporated in June 1925 as a wholesale quarrier/fabricator of Dakota Mahogany monuments. Our first payroll paid seven employees who worked at a shop and quarry six miles east of Milbank, South Dakota, in the heartland of America. By 1927, the employee roster had grown to 20 with sales topping $50,000. The following year saw the first building addition that would begin a pattern of growth that has not stopped. The company presently employs approximately 100 people. Dakota Granite Today -- Today, Dakota Granite Company is a full production facility. We quarry, manufacture and sell slabs, monuments, mausoleums, columbariums, civic memorials, blocks, and fabricate custom countertops, feature pieces and building projects. In December of 1998, we completed the construction of a new all granite office facility located next to our manufacturing plant. Due to company growth and the ever changing face of the granite industry, 2005 brought exciting changes to Dakota Granite. We have diversified and re-aligned to continue our commitment of excellence to you are customer. We now have two separate divisions. 1: Commercial Sales and 2: Memorial Sales. Both divisions will continue delivering quality products based on our founding family business philosophy and history of customer excellence. These entities have dedicated teams of full service sales, design, manufacturing and support staff committed to providing you the best in the industry. Today, Dakota Mahogany remains one of the most popular granites, not only because of the rich warm color, but because of its durability and inherent value. Dakota Mahogany is used extensively throughout the world in various building and interior design applications.
