Florestone was founded in 1947, in Oakland, CA, by Ray and Ann Flores. Originally known as “Pacific Cement Laundry Tray Company,” the addition of terrazzo shower receptors and mop sinks in 1958 warranted a name change to Florestone Products Company. The new name was a combination of “Flores,” the family name, and “stone,” the new successful product line.
In 1965, Florestone became one of the first manufacturers of compression molded shower receptors, mop sinks and laundry trays. These new products initiated an era of unprecedented growth for the company, as builders throughout the nation adopted compression molded receptors as a standard for new home construction. With the Florestone name on every unit, quality and service are a matter of personal pride.
