YOU LIKE OUR DRIVEWAY STONE, AND YOU LIVE WHERE?
When you call a business, the first thing you expect is good service. When a business has been around for a while, you usually get it. Nothing could be truer of a call made in December to Segalla Sand & Gravel of North Canaan Connecticut.
It seems there is a new demand for their 3/8” native stone. The client for the export company was calling had seen Segallas’ stone on a driveway while visiting the Berkshires. They loved it and they had to have it on theirs. One small hurdle to cross… did I say small, the clients driveway, it’s in Israel.
Renata Segalla-Siok and her brother John Segalla conferred and told the client, “Yes, we can do this.” That was the beginning of a new International Relationship. “Providing The Ground To Build On”, the corporate motto of Segalla Sand & Gravel, would need to be revised…“Providing The Ground To Build On, Anywhere”.
Renata, spent many hours and maybe a few sleepless nights coordinating the sale. With some direction from John, she soon found herself knee-deep with International shipping requirements, mailing samples, countless phone calls and emails to put the package together. Finally, the 80 ton of stone ( that’s 160,000 ponds or approximately 4 large dump truck loads), would need to be bagged, pallet-ed / wrapped and placed in the shippers four “ Sea Containers”. The containers would then be hauled to the Port of New York to be placed on a cargo ship for their delivery to Israel, over 6000 miles away.
The sale was completed in early February and Segalla Sand & Gravel, Inc. has once again “Provided The Ground To Build On”.
