Alaska: The 49th state with its capital in Juneau, was first discovered by outsiders in 1741 and first settled by Russian whalers and fur traders on Kodiak Island in 1784. Of course, prior to that, it was home to Aleut, Eskimo and Indian groups. In 1867, Alaska was purchased by the United States from Russia for $7,200,000 (about 2 cents per acre) but did not officially become as state until Jan. 3, 1959. It is the largest U.S. state (more than twice the size of Texas), roughly 1/3 of the state lies in the Arctic Circle, it has the lowest population density in the nation and about 25 percent of the oil produced in the United States is from Alaska. While it only contains a little over 731,000 people (New York City has more than 11 times that population), Alaskans still need countertops, and there are plenty of places to supply them. You can find a list of countertop businesses in Alaska here!
There are still some inconsistencies to the list, but we are working to correct them and I just couldn't wait to share it.
This is a sneak peek
at our second installment of our efforts to compile the most
complete list of countertop fabricators in the United States from A to
Z. Alabama countertop fabricators was the first, and we will be working on Arizona next and hope to give you a look at that list as soon as its available.
And you will find it here first.
In coming weeks (and likely months), we will be compiling lists for all
50 states, and once we get them done, we will seek input from the
industry to make sure everything is in order before we release the
information to the public.
We think this is going to be very popular with the countertop community and very useful for those seeking new countertops.
Let us know what you think!
