Precast stone is second nature to Mark Arban. His father, grandfather, and great grandfather had a long history of manufacturing stone in Italy and Germany. As a young boy in the 1940's, he grew up working for his father's precast stone business in Alexandria, Virginia.
In 1963, Mark Arban began his own precast stone business in a one car garage in Alexandria, Virginia. Business thrived over the years. In 1976, the company expanded and built a new plant in Dumfries, Virginia. It has become one of the most prominent precast stone companies in the Washington, D.C. area.
Mark Arban now feels very fortunate to be turning the management and ownership of the business over to the next generation. Allen Macey, his son-in-law, is now the president of the company. The business has prospered since his arrival in 2001.
