Our History

2.3 - Our Founder 1949In 1949, Stone Sales and Service was founded in Indianapolis, Indiana under the leadership and vision of Paul S. Poynter, Sr. His dedication to customer service and desire to provide superior natural stone products to the building industry was his true passion. In 1971, Paul, his wife Jeanette, and their sons moved to Conyers, Georgia and established Fieldstone Center, Inc., providing custom fabricated stone as well as full turnkey installation.

In 1988, Paul retired, and his son, Brad J. Poynter, and his wife, Darlene, purchased Fieldstone Center, Inc. Together, we continue to operate Fieldstone Center, Inc. with the same level of commitment to customer service that was established by the elder Mr. Poynter.

In 1991, we purchased our own stone quarry operations. Named “Stone Sales and Service, Inc.” in honor of Brad’s father, the wholesale quarries in Tennessee provide flagstone, fieldstone, and other building stone products to stone centers nationwide.

2.3 - Original Stone YardIn 2007, our daughter, Lauren Poynter, joined us, providing product knowledge in Outside Sales. In 2008, we completed construction on our new 24,000 square foot retail stone design center in Covington, Georgia, where we offer computer assisted fabrication, water and stone recycling, state of the art natural thin veneer fabrication and a showroom like no other in the Atlanta area.

It is our mission to supply quality products that are functional and beautiful, yet are also “green and sustainable building materials” that will transcend the test of time. Our knowledgeable associates are trained to provide a unique approach to meeting your needs.

Thank you for the opportunity to share our history. We hope that you will call on Fieldstone Center, Inc. for all your stone and masonry needs.

Best Regards,
Brad & Darlene Poynter
