After all, isolation and dissociation only seem to be beneficial at first glance - competitors will supposedly not spy on and steal my know-how or poach my employees. But this is a very narrow view. All the same, useful technologies and discoveries will become the property of everyone very quickly, and dissatisfied employees will smoothly flow to more successful companies.
Cooperation, partnership, exchange of information for common benefit and development, mutual support - these are the tasks of the «Center stone» Association. Collective international trips, specialized forums, competitions, conferences and exhibitions in Russia are only the beginning of the work. The Association «Center Stone» plans to do many more useful things, including participation in the development of industry legislation.
By participating in the activities of the Association you get from it as much as you put your efforts. Formal membership and fees are only a small part of the work. By actively participating in the activities, contributing your ideas and suggestions you form and improve the environment in which you live and work.

I wish the participants of the stone processing market success and prosperity. Join the Association «Center Stone», if you have already joined - activate, take initiative, expand your horizons, grow and strengthen.
