Beginning in 1898 with a single quarry and a hardworking stonecutter, Coldspring has become one of the largest natural stone manufacturers serving commercial, landscaping, memorialization and residential customers.

Many still know us as a granite company, even though we have been much more than a granite company for a long time. Our expertise also includes the manufacturing and distribution of bronze memorials and signage, diamond tools, cemetery building consulting and construction services, and other materials including marble, limestone, sandstone and composites for specialized applications.

Coldspring continues to thrive through creativity, diligence and determination. Motivated by our customers’ success, we continue to embrace and develop technology, create new products for the marketplace and foster a business culture that supports industry-leading sustainability practices.

Superior abrasion-resistance also makes Kasota Valley Limestone suitable for a wide range of interior and exterior applications.

Sandstone image


A very versatile material, sandstone resists weathering and has a high absorption rate and low compression strength, making it suitable for a variety of building and paving applications. Generally, the stone has a uniform, aesthetically pleasing appearance and is somewhat soft, making it particularly well-suited for textured finishes. Brownstone is a popular variety of sandstone.

Stone Finishes

Creating a lasting impression Coldspring is on the cutting edge of natural stone finishes. For decades, we have been developing and fine-tuning a variety of standard and proprietary finishes.

For custom finishes, our craftsmen welcome the opportunity to meet the most demanding design requirements. In fact, some of our most difficult custom challenges have evolved into some of our standard finishes, where we've fashioned subtle variations in color, tone and texture to enhance the beauty of the stone.

Industrial Products image

Industrial Products

Coldspring is one of the leading suppliers of custom granite parts for new and existing pickling operations, including brick-lined tanks, helping to ensure high levels of reliability and longevity. We also offer high-quality, acid-resistant mastic for establishing durable, reliable and extremely tight granite-to-granite seals.

Coldspring Rockville Beige and Lac Du Bonnet granites possess superior resistance to temperature extremes, acid corrosion and abrasion, making them highly effective lining material for new pickling tank construction, as well as for custom-fabricating a variety of replacement pieces for both granite and brick-lined tanks.

We leverage both Building Information Modeling (BIM) and precision production capabilities to provide exceptionally tight fits, while also producing duplicate parts as a repetitive process rather than individually by hand. Simply provide the dimensions and piece identification and we'll take care of the rest. Throughout the design process, our drafters will leverage BIM to offer time-saving suggestions, guarantee design efficiency and optimize quality of construction.

We have built our reputation on quality stone solutions, great customer service and keeping pace with the ever-changing building industryand indeed a lot has changed since we began in the 1890's.

Stone is one of the most durable materials you can use for any application. When specified and detailed correctly, our products can last for hundreds of yearsresulting in some of the lowest embodied energy of any material.

Developing and maintaining a sustainable operation is a Coldspring core value that not only affects how we do business, but also shapes our corporate culture. Stone is a natural resource. However, depending on how it is quarried, processed, transported and used has a significant bearing on the environmental impact for any particular use. Likewise, our foundry and other non-stone operations also benefit from sustainable practices that maximize the utilization of our resources while minimizing energy use.
