Brooklyn Stone and Tile is a converted 8 employee business with a pilot three worker-owner cooperative that sells and installs tiles and marble countertops in New York City. The owner chose to sell to employees because he was retiring after 30 years. The converted business has begun manufacturing in the Brooklyn Navy Yards, a city emblem of the rebirth of manufacturing and locally grown companies.
