About tab

Company

IceStone was founded by Miranda Magagnini and Peter Strugatz in 2003 with capital investment from angel investors such as Ben Cohen from Ben & Jerry’s, activist and author Dal LaMagna the founder of Tweezerman, Greg Steltenpohl from Odwalla, and Gary Hirshberg from Stonyfield Farm. From the beginning our simple mission was to transform waste glass into something beautiful while taking care of our employees and the planet at the same time. Since 2003, over 13 million pounds of waste glass have been redirected from landfills. In the process our team has developed an uncompromising balance of design and sustainability that has set IceStone apart from all other surfaces and companies. That balance and mission has been a guiding principle at our company to do our part in making the world a better place in the present and in the future.

As a founding B Corp, IceStone is a triple bottom line company that places value on People, Planet and Profit. We are 10% employee owned, provide health benefits, living wages, immigration assistance and life-skill training programs to all our employees who also participate in our profit sharing plan and have an active voice in the operation and direction of the company.

Facility

IceStone is located in a day-lit 55,000-square-foot (5,100 m2) repurposed facility in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in Brooklyn, New York that dates back to the early 1900’s. The company maintains a low-heat manufacturing process with a greywater recycling system that reclaims and reuses 98% of the water used.. We use soy-based lubricants for our machines and redirect all of our scrap and waste material to be used for other purposes.

Today, IceStone’s recycled content surfaces remain an icon of the countertop industry, returning more to every project than meets the eye.
