GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY

On April 13th, we hosted the official Groundbreaking Ceremony at the site of our new home, 1940 New Harvest Road, here in Gainesville, GA.

The event was attended by members of The Mincey Family, The Mincey Marble Management Team and dignitaries from the City of Gainesville, Hall County and the Hall County Chamber of Commerce.

Tim Evans, VP Economic Development for The Greater Hall County Chamber of Commerce, opened the event by introducing the attending dignitaries and spoke about the 40 year history of Mincey Marble in Hall County. Donna Mincey, our President & CEO, welcomed those in attendance and thanked them for their support. Caitlin Collins, Donna’s daughter, spoke about “A New Building, A New Generation” and what it meant to be a part of the next generation of Mincey family members to be involved with the company. There were also congratulatory speeches by Gainesville City Mayor Danny Dunagan and Billy Powell, Hall County District 2 Commissioner.

Gold shovels and hard hats were handed out as The Mincey’s and dignitaries broke ground for our new complex. Kenneth Mincey then climbed aboard one of the large bulldozers for pictures and a short drive.

It was a wonderful way to celebrate the beginning of the next chapter in Mincey Marble’s 40 year history.

Additional photos will be added as the building progresses, so check back often!
