About Best-Way Marble & Tile

COMPANY HISTORY

Best-Way Marble was established in 1974 by the Herrera brothers in a small shop on Prairie Ave in Hawthorne CA. In 1981, Best-Way incorporated and moved to a larger facility on Telegraph Road in Los Angeles. At that time, Best-Way was a union shop and employed approximately 75 workers. Most notable projects are stone work at: The Beverly Center, Cartier, and South Coast Plaza. Best-Way became one of the most prominent marble & granite fabricators in Los Angeles and held one of the first Marble Institute of America memberships.

In 1990, during hard times and economy at a downturn, Best-Way scaled down its size considerably and turned its attention to residential applications; kitchen and baths. At this time, we opened our marble & granite yard and Best-Way changed appearance, un-unionized, and geared to open to the public. We opened our kitchen showroom and we imported natural stone direct from the quarries in Italy, Brazil, and Taiwan etc… It became one stop stone shopping for the kitchen & bath home remodeler.

The last of the Herrera brothers retired in 2006 but Best-Way thrives as a family owned company. In more recent times, days of extreme competition, our years of experience and knowledge has given us the advantage. We pride ourselves in the quality of the work we do and the service we provide. We are supported by our own team of fabricators and installers with years of experience. Some would say we are an old school shop but we think of it as craftsmen performing an old craft. We service customers we serviced over decades ago as well new and repeat clientele in the hospitality, furniture design, and general building business. I hope you too can be added to our story and list of references.

Over the years, we’ve found that quality and service is the backbone of our success. Our mission is to deliver the vision our clients imagine and to exceed their expectations in workmanship and professionalism at all phases of their project & by every member of our team.
