Learn what you need to know technically to manufacture and fabricate cultured marble, cultured granite, cultured onyx or solid surface products to make money by selling cast kitchen and bath products to the commercial construction, single-family and multi-unit housing, remodeling markets and other industry segments.

Revenue-generating opportunities exist worldwide by manufacturing cast bath and kitchen products for the home and commercial properties - producing and selling bathtubs, showers, wall panels, countertops, vanity decks, vanity bowls, sinks, trim and hundreds of other innovative cast products. For 40 years, Gruber has served the needs of cultured marble, solid surface and other cast polymer manufacturers - providing molds, manufacturing equipment, materials, supplies and technical "know-how". We've designed manufacturing plants worldwide, and continue to serve the needs of manufacturers worldwide on an ongoing basis.
 
Gruber offers intensive, hands-on professional training in these disciplines:
  • Cultured Marble Manufacturing
  • Solid Surface Manufacturing and Fabrication
These two classes are intended for people wanting to learn how to manufacture cast polymer products - such as cultured marble, cultured onyx, cultured stone and solid surface. These classes are intended for those new to the industry, as well as for those who have had prior experience but want an intensive refresher. Anyone considering a business producing cultured marble/onyx/stone or solid surface should likewise participate in this class before you make important decisions about your manufacturing plant - so you have a much better understanding of the process, the required resources, and your plant layout.
 
These classes provide a person with no technical experience an intensive, hands-on environment where they will learn all aspects of how to make cast polymer products. These classes are ideal for anyone considering a cast polymer business making cultured marble or solid surface products. Our team of technical and business professionals are also available during your stay to discuss your needs, and maximize your learning experience and benefit.
 
For any organization considering entering the cast polymer manufacturing industry, we highly recommend that you have 1 or 2 key people in your organization take the class before starting your business. Hundreds of business owners, general managers, production foremen, workers, and industry suppliers have completed the Gruber Systems Training Program since it began in 1976. Gruber’s training program emphasizes a “hands-on” approach to learning. We believe the best way to learn the proper, most up-to-date, proven methods of manufacturing is through carefully supervised  practice under the watchful eye of an experienced instructor.
