Cambria Retail & Manufacturing Center

The Retail & Manufacturing Center gives other JA businesses the chance to upgrade their existing countertops with beautiful quartz countertops from Cambria. Students will do experiments using powder to mix and match tile colors. Employees use an interactive iPad app to create new countertop designs. Cambria also sells retail items, including quartz necklaces, quartz/rock bouncy balls, and Cambria notebooks (debit cards only).
