Precast stone was second nature to Mark Arban. His father, grandfather and great grandfather had a long history of manufacturing stone in Italy and Germany. He had also grown up working for his father's precast stone business in Alexandria, VA., since his boyhood in the 40's.
In 1963, Mark Arban began his own precast stone business in a one car garage in Alexandria Va. Business thrived over the years. In 1976, the company expanded and built a new plant in Dumfries, VA. It became one of the most prominent precast stone companies in the Washington, DC area.
Mark Arban now feels very fortunate to be turning the management and ownership of the business over to the next generation. Allen Macey, his son-in-law, is now the president of the company. Allen was previously a successful manager with Quality Building Products Inc. of Maryland. It was a tough decision for Allen in 2001, to give up the successful position he had attained there and join the family business. The business has prospered since he has arrived, despite keen competition with out of state competitors.
