In 1989, Russell Masetta, founder and owner of Authentic NATURE STONE® Brand Flooring, was looking for a way to reduce costly concrete repairs in his Concrete Doctor business. He began experimenting with epoxies, stone and various mixtures, believing there was some potential ingredient that could correct deficiencies in concrete. He found the answer. He engineered the design of a blend of natural stone and specially formulated epoxy. His vision was now a reality. Russ Masetta called his new company, NATURE STONE®.
Twenty four years later, Authentic NATURE STONE® Brand Flooring is the leader in stone and epoxy flooring in America. Because of the success of Authentic NATURE STONE® Brand Flooring, NATURE STONE has received the most desired and prestigious Weatherhead 100 Award and Best Practices Award recognizing them as one of the fastest growing companies in Northeast Ohio.
From the outset, Russ Masetta wanted Authentic NATURE STONE® Brand Flooring to be one of the most admired companies in America. His professional strengths would come from his patent-pending epoxy. His personal and professional strengths would come from principled moral and ethical behavior of all of his employees coupled with Authentic NATURE STONE® Brand Flooring’s role in the community. Right from the start, Russ Masetta adopted the motto for the State of Ohio: “With God, All Things Are Possible” as a hallmark for his charitable donation program that donates 1% of each Authentic NATURE STONE® Brand Flooring sale to the customer’s charity of choice. Due to his concern for his community, Russ Masetta received the prestigious Pillar Award for Community Service and was also honored as a finalist in the Ernst & Young, Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
