What AMS Does

Our projects are designed using the latest drafting software. Using the latest technology American Masonry Supply, Inc. strives to service the needs of our customers. All cast stone designs and drawings are done in AutoCAD, allowing accuracy to details, a quick turn around on shop drawings, and setting plans by one of our designers. Our Cast Stone Design suite gives the Drafting & Design Department the capability to easily duplicate and alter drawings to meet the specifications of our customers. AMS has taken pride in assisting our customers to alter stock pattern moulds to fit their specific architectural requirements and budget. The AMS Design and Drafting Department creates drawings for custom projects, as well as duplicating reproductions of antiques or architectural elements for Historic Preservation. We maintain copies of all drawings, specifications, and setting plans to assist our customers with any questions or concerns.

Cast Stone can be a prime element in any design. American Masonry Supply, Inc. is known for high-quality architectural cast stone elements, superior designs, and excellent customer service. We pledge to "give our clients more than they expect."

American Masonry Supply's unique design and fabrication facilities allow us to be extremely creative and allow you to deal directly with the manufacturer. We maintain thousands of elegantly sculpted hand carved cast stone and plaster moulds in our design library which are available to our clients. These moulds can easily be customized to satisfy your specific requirements. Quality production begins with quality drawings. That is why AMS maintains highly qualified draftsmen that convert architectural blue prints into production shop drawings. These drawings are then provided to our custom mould shop. If necessary, moulds are constructed by our skilled craftsmen. After the moulds are prepared the cast stone production begins. To create the cast stone mixture, fine aggregates are combined with cement and additives before being mixed in large turbine mixers. This mixture is then placed in the moulds. Intense tamping is applied to densely compact the mixture. After vigorous tampering, reinforcement is added and the mould is filled. Tampering is repeated and the piece of cast stone is completed. Now the mould is turned over and examined for quality. If the cast stone product does not meet our rigorous standards it is returned to the mix and remade. Our products are carefully packed using Styrofoam separators and then shrink wrapped, allowing pieces to arrive on the project site in the same condition they left our manufacturing plant.
