Our Story


Shivam Desai has been in the granite industry since June 2011. Shivam moved to Austin TX in January 2015 to open the fourth location of CRS Marble and Granite.

CRS Marble & Granite was founded by Sunny Surana in 2005, and would quickly become the stone industry’s stand out supplier of exotic Quartzite, Granite, Marble, as well as Quartz. What began as a small family-run business has turned into model for success that never stops challenging itself to do and be better. With offices in Brazil and India, CRS has firmly established itself as a major international player. Since its inception, CRS has stayed true to its home grown mission: To continue to be a hands - on company whose dedication to exemplary customer service is unsurpassed.

Sunny partnered with Shivam to build upon success of the initial three stores, and expand further. With an entrepreneurial spirit and a keen eye for quality, CRS is a company that prides itself on strict attention to detail when purchasing stone. Sunny and Shivam travel to international quarries in remote, mountainous areas to uncover high end exotic stone with prime finishing.
