20 Years at PGC!


It’s not everyday that you find someone with the commitment and dedication of our lead installer, Troy. It goes without saying that Troy is a leader in the industry when it comes to precision and attention to detail. We celebrated his 20 years of service and commitment to PGC last Friday. His work ethic is among the best and we are proud to have him as part of PGC’s team. Troy is an integral part of the success and longevity of PGC. He has been part of the team since nearly the beginning.




During his off time Troy enjoys hunting, 4-wheeling, and cooking. We were able to get him a gift that he can use while doing one of his favorite past times. I can actually say he was speechless, which was kind of nice! (LOL) All joking aside we are happy to have Troy on our team and look forward to many more years. Congratulations Troy!

Employee Spotlight: Installer, Matt

Matt 3Matt just celebrated his 1st year anniversary at PGC. He mainly installs, but also works in the shop on the Robo Saw and other production areas as needed. His flexibility and willingness to fill in where needed is greatly appreciated!

Matt’s hobbies include spending time with his fun, loving, and easy-going family, along with fishing, hunting, wood carving, and riding his motorcycle. His most memorable trip was to Alaska, and one day he hopes to fly a plane. But first, winning the lottery may come in handy seeing that he and his fiancé, Nicole, recently started a family of their own! We are thrilled for them!

One thing that may surprise you about Matt is that he cut off 3 fingers at the age of 16 using a snow blower, and that he is also afraid of spiders! Ironically, his personal motto comes from a famous quote in Dumb and Dumber…”you can’t triple stamp a double stamp! “. Matt’s caring, creative, and outgoing personality make him a pleasure to work with, and he always has a smile on his face!

Matt 4Thanks for your hard work and dedication to PGC!!

Employee Spotlight: Production, Brandon L

B2 1Brandon L, or B-2 as we like to call him (we have two Brandon’s here), has been with PGC since the beginning of the year. Primarily his function is running the CNC mill but without a doubt he fills in and assists at whatever capacity he is asked to, including our recent showroom remodel.

During his down time B-2 enjoys paintball, Frisbee golf, and motorcycles. Some of his favorite vacations include those hobbies, but his all-time favorite trip was fishing in Flin Flon, Manitoba Canada. He is at his happiest when he is near a body of water at sunset with his dog, Buddy, and a cold drink. But, make sure the ticks are far from him…YUCK!

Something that may surprise some is that B-2 is a good cook/baker, while he cannot choose just one favorite meal, he could not live without bacon! Right now, Brandon is “living the dream”, but high on his bucket list is one day going sky diving!Brandon L

Thanks for your hard work and skill that you add to the PGC team!

Employee Spotlight: Sales, Rosa

Rosa & Gabriel

Rosa & Gabriel

Rosa joined the PGC team in early 2016 and has since settled in and plays a key role in the sales area as well as many other functions. Her easy-going, optimistic, and resilient attitude serves her well when working with customers as they select stone for their “dream kitchens” and projects!

Rosa’s beautiful family includes her husband Chris, son Gabriel, black lab Lady, and calico cat named Chiquilla. She is at her happiest when she can be home with them, doing whatever they want with no plans. She also enjoys watching movies, but sadly this may have contributed to her fear of being in a high -speed chase or a tornado! Some of her other hobbies include cooking, gardening, bird watching, and fishing. You may be surprised to know that she used to host karaoke and loves to sing, and is a licensed esthetician.

With Rosa’s long “bucket list”, some of which include traveling the world to many places including, Ireland, Amsterdam, Greece, Hawaii to surf and see an erupting volcano, and China to see the Great Wall, learning how to ski (well), learning how to drive a manual transmission (hey, I can help you with that!!), doing the crow pose in yoga, and learning how to shoot a gun and go deer hunting with her husband…her quest to win big money on the Wheel of Fortune may come in handy!!



Thanks for being a great team player at PGC!

Employee Spotlight: Customer Service & Production Assistant, Adina

Adina joined our PGC family 2-1/2 years ago and has played a huge role in the day to day functioning of the office, as well as assisting our measure tech with drawings and programming. Her role does not end there as she also works with showroom visitors and as part of the sales team. Adina’s patience and attention to detail have proven to be a great asset to the PGC team!

During her off time Adina loves to spend time with her family, including her husband, four wonderful children, and her tiny, fluffy, Maltipoo. Making memories with her family, spending time on the lake, and vacationing are among Adina’s favorite things. She is at her happiest when she is riding bike, hiking, running, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, snowmobiling, oh and working on home and cabin projects with her husband. With all of the time she spends outdoors, there is one thing she is always on the lookout for…frogs…she has a great fear of frogs!

Adina’s personal manta, “You create your own destiny,” is shown though and through in her life. She believes if you have a positive attitude, you will have a positive outcome. She has also instilled in her children the “golden rule”…the world could always use more of this! Her dependability, honesty, and positivity are a reflection of her values and core beliefs.

Thank you for your dedication to PGC, Adina!
