Employee Spotlight: Customer Service & Production Assistant, Adina



Adina joined our PGC family 2-1/2 years ago and has played a huge role in the day to day functioning of the office, as well as assisting our measure tech with drawings and programming. Her role does not end there as she also works with showroom visitors and as part of the sales team. Adina’s patience and attention to detail have proven to be a great asset to the PGC team!

During her off time Adina loves to spend time with her family, including her husband, four wonderful children, and her tiny, fluffy, Maltipoo. Making memories with her family, spending time on the lake, and vacationing are among Adina’s favorite things. She is at her happiest when she is riding bike, hiking, running, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, snowmobiling, oh and working on home and cabin projects with her husband. With all of the time she spends outdoors, there is one thing she is always on the lookout for…frogs…she has a great fear of frogs!

Adina’s personal manta, “You create your own destiny,” is shown though and through in her life. She believes if you have a positive attitude, you will have a positive outcome. She has also instilled in her children the “golden rule”…the world could always use more of this! Her dependability, honesty, and positivity are a reflection of her values and core beliefs.

Thank you for your dedication to PGC, Adina!

Granite Countertops – Spotlight on Juparana Persa



In this blog I wanted to spotlight the beautiful granite, Juparana Persa, which is quarried in Brazil.

Juparana Persa

Juparana Persa

This unique stone brings out a lot of earth tones and would be versatile to use with many different types of cabinets and finishes. Juparana Persa can vary quite a bit, from light beige with black mica to deep goldish brown. Typically it has a consistent pattern, however it is not completely out of the ordinary to find the “gem” block that will fascinate even the most experienced stone advocate.

Stop into our showroom and see the Juparana Persa, along with many other beautiful stones to choose from for your new kitchen!

Thanks for reading!

Employee Spotlight: Sales, Jocelyn



Jocelyn is new to PGC in the last year and has adjusted well to her position. Her upbeat personality and willingness to dive in and learn new things has been a great addition to the PGC family.

Carter, Jocelyn, Max, Minnie Mouse, Mike, Connor

Outside of work Jocelyn stays busy being a wife, mom, and huge fan to her sons’ sports teams! With three boys in soccer and hockey it is no wonder! She also enjoys spending time at the lake with her family, and going shopping with her mom. Creating memories and experiences as a family is very important to Jocelyn and one of the most memorable trips they took was a Disney cruise, which disconnected them from social media and eliminated making meals for her teenage boys for a week!! Now that IS a vacation!

Two things Jocelyn cannot live without are God and Starbucks! Her “dream big – work hard” mentality will undoubtedly put her on the path to a “bucket list” vacation to Bora Bora with her husband, Mike. Jocelyn would like to be famous for raising amazing kids, but please do not let them grow up to quickly!

Jocelyn takes great care of her customers and continues to grow in her position. We appreciate her dedication to PGC!

Employee Spotlight: Shop Foreman, Brandon



Brandon 2During his 6-1/2 years at PGC, Brandon has done a little bit of everything, from installing, fabricating, operating the RoboSaw and CNC, to shop foreman. His wide array of skills contributes to the efficient operation of the fabrication shop on a daily basis. An exceptional skill that Brandon holds is the ability to VeinMatch material to optimize the flow of the unique stones we fabricate.

Recently married, Brandon enjoys spending time with his wife. The two enjoyed a fabulous honeymoon/vacation to Cozumel, Mexico, which was one of the best vacations he has ever been on. Other hobbies include hunting, especially duck, fishing, and cooking. Brandon is a true “foodie” at heart and enjoys cooking every meal and doing the dishes! Making lefse with his grandma is a tradition and spending time with his family is very important to him.

Brandon admits that he works hard so that he can play hard and has no desire to be famous. At the top of his bucket list he would jump at the chance to go to Alaska and do some halibut fishing.

His honesty, sense of humor, and “guy next door” persona are contagious and contribute to the team at PGC!

Thanks for your commitment and hard work at PGC!!
