About Federal Stone Industries: Three Generations of Excellence Since 1965
At Federal Stone Industries, we take immense pride in our legacy of craftsmanship and tradition in the realm of precast concrete products. With over five decades of experience, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to crafting the finest pool coping stones, elevating ordinary pools to the distinction that Federal Stone has become synonymous with. As a family-owned business spanning three generations, our legacy of quality and innovation is woven into the very fabric of each stone we meticulously produce.
Our Rich Heritage
Our journey commenced in 1965 when Federal Stone Co. began producing swimming pool coping and distributing pool products. It was then that Gus Rethemeyer, a visionary in the field, purchased Federal Stone Co. and incorporated it into Federal Stone Industries, Inc. He shifted our focus solely towards producing and manufacturing pre-cast products, marking the pivotal moment when Federal Stone centered itself around family and the pursuit of crafting the highest quality pool coping for our valued customers, establishing a legacy that would transcend generations. Gus's passion laid the foundation for our success.
Passing the Torch
In the years that ensued, Gus's son, David, assumed the mantle of leadership, following the untimely loss of our inaugural leader in September 2014. Under David's stewardship, Federal Stone Industries continued to flourish, raising the bar in the industry and setting new standards. David's unwavering commitment to preserving the family's legacy of crafting quality handmade coping and driving innovation ensured the company's enduring success.
A New Generation
Today, we enthusiastically introduce Brandon, the latest torchbearer of Federal Stone Industries. As the third generation to helm our company, Brandon brings fresh perspectives and a renewed dedication to upholding our reputation for excellence. With Brandon at the helm, we are poised to continue our tradition of crafting precast pool coping stones that consistently surpass expectations and to explore exciting avenues for business growth.
