Florestone was founded in 1947, in Oakland, CA by Ray and Ann Florestone. First known as “Pacific Cement Laundry Tray Company,” its sole product was cement laundry trays. They later added terrazzo shower receptors and mop sinks and the success changed the company’s focus and prompted the renaming to Florestone Products Company.
In 1965 they became one of the first manufacturers of compression molded shower receptors, mop sinks and laundry trays. As the company continued to show growth, in 1974 it further expanded its product line to include gel coated fiberglass reinforced bathtubs, showers, tub/showers and whirlpools.
