The domestic dimension stone industry had another poor-to-indifferent year during 1992, particularly in the building end of the business. Stone demand for commercial structures was better than for residential structures in many parts of the country. Two major events last year were the buyout of Coggins Granite of Georgia by the parent firm of Rock of Ages and the disposal of Vermont Marble's dimension stone assets. Domestic dimension stone production dropped slightly to 985 kt (1.09 million st), and to $183 million. The value decreased to $183 million from $197 in 1991. Imports dropped to $415 million from $475 million. Exports remained steady at $65 million.
