About Classic Marble

About the Company

Classic Marble, Inc. manufactures cultured marble, cultured onyx, and cultured granite, using raw materials to fabricate bathroom vanities, shower pans, tubs, and surround walls. They even make custom items like soap dishes.

They are a family owned and operated company, located in Woodland, California, which was started in 1978 by Merle and Helen Clark (the parents of Sheryl Weber). Merle was originally a brick mason but eventually felt he needed to find something different for him and his wife to do as a business opportunity. This lead to the creation of Classic Marble, which started out as a simple business with a very simple goal: give each and every customer the best product and service possible and leave them completely happy with the overall experience.

With Merle’s passing in 2010, the company began to lose its original vision and direction. The loss of his guiding force caused somewhat of a shift away from the concept of keeping things basic and simple. Now that Sheryl and John Weber are actively running the company, they are taking the business back to its roots. Their business model is the same as Merle’s, one of simplicity, in that every job will produce an outstanding product, and end in superb customer satisfaction. And, although computers are a great help to any business, Sheryl still runs the administrative part of Classic Marble like her dad always did – on paper.

About John Weber

John Weber is the Chief Financial Officer for Classic Marble, Inc. but, in actuality, has been around the company for 30 years. As an apprentice carpenter working for String Brothers Homes, he often bought cultured marble counter-tops for projects he was working on. He also bought cultured marble bathroom products from them when he built his own home, around the time he became a general contractor in 1980.

John was born into–and raised around–the trade by his father. One of his favorite sayings is “I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. It was more like a rusty nail.” As a result, he was always curious about anything construction-related. When John used to visit the Classic Marble shop, Merle would see this and, eventually, share bits of his knowledge. He taught John a valuable lesson: “You can learn more by keeping your mouth shut and watching people do their job.”

So, by hanging out with Merle and the Classic Marble workers for all those years, John ended up learning the business from within. He certainly had no intention of ever running it in the future—he just wanted to learn about the manufacture of cultured marble. However, in the long run, all those visits came in handy. Merle ended up being a mentor and without realizing it (or perhaps with realizing it), prepared John to take over the business with his wife, Sheryl,  in late 2015.

 


About Sheryl Weber

Sheryl Weber’s story is a bit different. A former owner/operator of a day care center, as well as a home school mom, she is now the Chief Executive Officer of Classis Marble, Inc. However, her early involvement with her dad’s company was not as welcomed as John’s shop visits.

Initially, Sheryl started helping in the shop by answering phones a few times a week. Helping out in her dad’s shop was the one joy in her life she really looked forward to, because if gave her the chance to be around him. The frequency of this task eventually grew until she was there every day. She learned a lot about the cultured marble business—but only from the front office, because Merle did not like having women in the back, where the manufacturing took place. Despite this barrier, Sheryl learned enough from the front office that would enable her to run the business with John in the future.

Sheryl says she is basically self-taught in many areas of life, which are normally learned in school (not always an option growing up in rural California). It is certainly no cliché when she says she graduated from the “School of Hard Knocks,” because it is really true for her. So, when the time came to assume full control of Classic Marble, Inc. with her husband, John, she was more than qualified.


Mission Statement

We, John and Sheryl Weber, owners of Classic Marble, Inc., do hereby promise to treat each and every client with the greatest respect and courtesy, while providing the absolute best products and services possible by under-promising and over-delivering throughout the process, so that in the end, we not only have made a customer totally satisfied, but we have also made a new friend.
