In 1995, Michael and Matthew Schott started Onslow Stonewoks as an extension of an existing glass company. They now employ 23 full-time and 10 part-time workers, running in two shifts, at their 14,000-square-foot facility in Swansboro, NC.
The Schott family has a long history of stone working. In the late 1800s, brothers Nicola and Emidio Scioli emigrated to and settled in the town of Cliffside Park, NJ, where the family’s granite quarry was operated on the Palisades Cliffs. The Schott brothers’ grandfather worked at the quarry as a young boy, and in turn, he took the time to pass the family’s traditions on to the boys. In 1995, Michael and Matthew Schott started Onslow Stoneworks as an extension of an existing glass company. At that time, an opportunity arose to fabricate some prefabricated panels, and from there, the business exploded into custom kitchens in just a few months’ time.

We just received word from the International Surfaces Event in Orlando, FL that the LT-2D3D Laser Templator was just awarded the honor of being named Best Product of 2015. We are extremely proud of the work we have put into our lasers to make winning an award like this possible. We have always tried to maintain our status as the World Leader in Digital Templating by listening to our customers and the industry as a whole and producing a product that everyone wants.
A well deserved award
When you consider the extent that Laser Products Industries as a company, has gone to in order to bring digital templating to all levels of the industry, we feel this is a well deserved award. When we first produced the LT-55 Laser Templator we knew over 80% of fabricators were manual shops. Because of this, we specifically tailored to those shops by offering a vinyl plotter to cut templates. When the market shifted to completely digital, we embraced it and released the XL model offering paperless solutions and the ability to email jobs back to the office. The LT-55 XL Laser Templator was awarded the AWFS Sequoia Award for Product Innovation as well.
This award was presented to us by judges from the Marble Institute of America, Stone World Magazine, Floor Covering Installer, Floor Trends, Contemporary Stone & Tile Design, and TILE Magazine.
