Kentucky: The Bluegrass State entered the Union on June 1, 1792 to become the 15th state.

People in Kentucky need countertops too, and there are plenty of places to supply them! You can find a list of countertop businesses in Kentucky here.
This is a sneak peek at our efforts to compile the most complete list of countertop fabricators in the United States from A to Z. We will be working on Louisiana next and hope to give you a look at that list as soon as its available. And you will find it here first.
There are still some inconsistencies to the list, but we are working to correct them and I just couldn't wait to share it.
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!
