V. Fontana & Co. has been in continuous operation since it was founded by Valerio Fontana in April 1921. Located in the historic Fontana Building, adjacent to the Colma BART Station, it has been operated by the same family in the same two locations for four generations, with one of the founder’s great-granddaughters working in the office and one in the factory. As the trend seems to be that businesses that are bought and sold accrue the total time of operation over a variety of ownerships, Fontana’s is truly unique in that the same family has an unbroken run of nine decades of service to San Francisco and the greater Bay Area community.
V. Fontana & Co. built its reputation on custom fabrication of all types of granite products. We order blocks of granite from quarries around the world and manufacture from these blocks commissioned works. The use of granite and marble in commercial and residential design has grown in popularity over the past decade. This is largely due to the fact that no other material can compete with the unique colors, qualities, and lasting durability of granite and marble. Since the 1920's, service and customer satisfaction has been the emphasis of this business. We believe it is the best policy to invite all our customers to stop by our factory in Colma, CA to witness the progress of their project. read more...
