Stone Panels International LLC Project: Crest Cadillac


Crest Cadillac participated in the Cadillac Brand Image project which included an exterior cladding renovation using StoneLite® Indiana Standard Buff limestone panels. Almost 2,000 sq. ft. of natural lightweight stone composite panels were installed.

In addition to manufacturing the panels SPI performed the installation services. StoneLite® panels can be installed in all weather conditions as evidenced by the installation photos. The natural limestone facing is porous while the honeycomb substrate is water impenetrable and may be used in an open joint/rain screen system. The installation photos attached to this project were taken before the project was completely installed and caulked.

Stone Panels International LLC is the culmination of a history spanning many decades and multiple continents. The technology behind our product, StoneLite®, was originally created in Ireland in the 1960s. Terence Bourke, an Irish aristocrat, manufactured a solution that allowed him to reinforce the otherwise fragile marble he produced. The process that Bourke developed has evolved into the exclusive process which Stone Panels International LLC uses today for manufacturing StoneLite® panels.

The Irish-based company that stemmed from Bourke’s entrepreneurship was acquired in the late 1970s, with a goal of moving central operations to the United States. In the mid-1980s that goal was realized with the completion of a factory in Carrollton, Texas. It was also around this time that the company was sold to a venture capital group. Along with these major moves for the company came both major improvements in product and production efficiency, as well as qualifying for vital code approval for StoneLite®; both domestically and in Europe.

At the end of the 1980s, the company was sold again and in 1990 it was re-named Stone Panels International LLC Sales offices in Europe were established along with European building code approvals. Today, Stone Panels International LLC calls a 167,000 square foot facility in Coppell (Dallas), Texas “home.” Stone Panels International LLC and the StoneLite® panels we produce are currently thriving under the private equity group Metapoint Partners. With each new project, Stone Panels International LLC continues to prove why StoneLite® is the premier choice for natural stone composite panels.
