Stone Center was established in 1952 and is a provider and fabricator of Natural Stone Products. Stone Center’s 70 years of expertise in Limestone Fabrication and vast selection of other natural stone products attracted current owners Jon and Tiffany Smiley as they acquired the company in 2021. Jon and Tiffany are the third owners of Stone Center and look to carry on the tradition set by the previous owners.
Both Jon and Tiffany are from Columbus, Ohio and live here with their three children. Jon attended Wittenberg University for undergrad and The Ohio State University for graduate school. Jon held various management positions in corporate America as well as a leadership role in The United States Navy. Outside of Stone Center, Jon loves hiking with his family, golfing, fishing, and watching The Ohio State Buckeyes play football.
The main foundation of Jon’s success as the owner of Stone Center is the strong relationships he builds with his customers and his team. This is evident in customer reviews that have consistently praised the Stone Center team for their customer service and attention to detail. Stone Center has a personalized approach to each customer’s needs. It allows for everyday to be a new adventure, setting them apart from other companies, which leaves a lasting impression on customers.
As Stone Center continues to grow, Jon has instilled a set of core values the team believes in and follows day in and day out. At the heart of these values is honesty, relentless optimism, and putting the customer first. Lastly, Stone Center would not be where we are today if it weren't for the valued customers we have built over the years. We work alongside each customer to bring their vision to life, we always strive to deliver the highest quality products, and will not stop until everyone is satisfied with the end product. Come on in and meet Jon and the team!
