Initially recognized for its laminate and wood products, Holstein, IA-based VT Industries is now a leading producer of quartz and natural stone countertops in the southern California market

Founded in 1956 by Roger Clausen, VT Industries remains a family-owned business — now under the leadership of its third generation. While the Holstein, IA-based company holds true to the same core values originally instilled by its founder, it also has grown and diversified since its origin. In addition to being a leading manufacturer of laminate countertops and wood doors, VT Industries also is a large producer of natural stone and quartz countertops. The company opened its facility in La Mirada, CA, five years ago, which houses its stone production and operates under a lean manufacturing system.
