G.M.S. Wërks is a leading company of natural stones, centrally located in the heartland of America. We are a company who provides different types and designs of stones like honed marble, granite, quartz, travertine etc. according to the needs of customers.Founded in 1924, by Isidoro Bortolotti, born in Maiano, Udine, Italy in 1897. After completing the third grade, which was typical of all children of humble laboring folk, he accompanied his uncle to Germany, at the age of nine years old, to learn the terrazzo trade. In 1914, he returned to Italy and served in the armed forces, was taken prisoner, and spent 13 months in the enemy’s hands. In 1920, they honorably discharged and commended him.
After his discharge, he set out for America and settled in Omaha, Nebraska. Already skilled in terrazzo and mosaic work, he had no trouble finding a job. From 1920 thru 1923, he applied himself diligently to learn the language, the customs, and the American point of view. He continued to master all the details of his trade while in the employ of others.Products include kitchen counters, snack bars, islands, vanities, tub surrounds, tables, buffets, desks and credenzas; seats for shower stalls; walls and partitions; steps; pedestals and bases for art work and sculptures; altars; signs and plaques, both large and small, for exterior and interior applications; fireplace surrounds and hearths.
The company sells large and small blocks of natural stone for sculpting; custom and pre-made medallions and designs; fireplace mantels; columns; floor and wall tiles in marble, granite, travertine, limestone, slate, and porcelain; natural stone, granite, marble; stainless, cast iron and ceramic sinks and fountains, natural stone cabinet knobs; floating granite balls.
Plates made of either of these natural materials differ in design and color. Natural stone countertops come in unusual, vibrant rose and green colors and patterns. If you are looking for something less audacious, quartzite is also available in neutral colors like beige, gray, and white. This substance is typically looked for as an alternative to marble. As marble is a sharp stone prone to scratching and grafting, quartzite can be utilized without much notice in its place.
