Specially formulated to provide effective yet gentle cleaning and maintenance to all natural stone surfaces, Granite Gold was developed by cousins Lenny Sciarrino and Lenny Pellegrino – each with more than 15 years of experience in the natural stone installation and repair business. Sciarrino and Pellegrino first launched their product in their native San Diego in 2003 in response to constant requests from customers for an easy, safe and reliable way to care for their investment in natural-stone surfaces. “Granite Gold was one of the first natural stone cleaning products on the market, and the only one developed by stone care experts,” said Granite Gold President and CEO Lenny Sciarrino.
“As more of the larger chemical companies launch natural stone care products, we’re hoping to show both retailers and consumers in our new distribution areas that there is no substitute for experience when it comes to developing a specialty stone cleaning and maintenance system,” he said.
