BIRMINGHAM, Mich. -- Clio Holdings, LLC has announced its continued investment in the countertop supply industry through the acquisition of Rochester, New York-based fabricator and installer Solid Surfaces, Inc. The acquisition pushes Clio's revenue to $80 million with over 500 employees in 11 locations. Clio was founded in June 2016 by investment firm, Oakland Standard Co., LLC.

Mitch Makowski founded Solid Surfaces more than 30 years ago with a circular saw in the back of his truck. Today, with locations in Buffalo and Rochester, the company is reported to be the largest fabricator and installer of quartz, granite, and solid surface countertops in upstate New York. The company is accredited by the Marble Institute of America and as a member of The Artisan Group.

"Mitch and Mark Makowski built an impressive business, and we're proud to have Solid Surfaces join the Clio team as the base for growth in the Northeast," said Bryan Tolles, Partner of Oakland Standard and founder of Clio.

Clio was formed to partner leading regional countertop suppliers and fabricators together providing the capital and operational expertise to upgrade, differentiate and professionalize this highly fragmented industry.

Following the acquisition of Solid Surfaces, Clio has a nine-state footprint serving a full spectrum within the countertop industry, from new homebuilders and commercial contractors to kitchen/bath dealers and home improvement centers. Clio is actively seeking new opportunities in major metro areas across the United States. For more information see and
