Your Granite Professionals and Partners

We care as much about the people and companies that support families in mourning as we do the memorials we provide to them.


Salem Stones, a leading national supplier of granite and bronze memorials, is a valued partner to monument retailers, cemeteries, and funeral homes helping them in creating lasting memorials for the families they serve.

While we are most often known for our breadth of inventory, what truly sets us apart is our people and our commitments to be caring, capable, and transparent. When everything matters, our customers know they can count on us.

What Drives Us

We know that the partners you choose matter. We know the emotions involved with families grieving the loss of a loved one. We also understand that our customers are tasked with providing a memorial that will tell a story that will be shared again and again. Their families rely on them to deliver a meaningful experience and to deliver on what they say. Their ability to do that puts their reputation on the line with every interaction.

Knowing that our customer reputation within their communities is at stake is what drives us each and every day. Our passion to help our customers sell more and become the trusted “go-to” company within their communities is the driving force for our focus to lead the industry with the largest inventory, best timelines, and the tools and technology to help them sell more and execute for their families. With Salem Stones your reputation is safe, and we will bring you peace of mind.

Our History

Lenin Kailasammani founded Salem Stones in 2006, spurred by a desire to fill gaps he noticed within the industry.

To deliver on the vision, Lenin built relationships with suppliers domestically and internationally. Our first warehouse, and corporate office, is in Columbus, Ohio. A second warehouse in Elberton, Ga., has since expanded our inventory and shipping capabilities. And we have even more growth on the horizon.

During the recent pandemic, our industry faced unprecedented challenges with supply chain disruption. However, due to our commitment to stocking the industry’s largest inventory and the relationships we built over time with suppliers and freight forwarders, Salem Stones was able of ship record amounts of granite to our customers during this time. Early in 2022 we faced new challenges internally with scaling our capacity to handle the growth and increased volume. We worked diligently to make the necessary internal improvements and enhancements to handle the increased volume while building in additional capacity. In the 2nd half of the year we committed to “Forging Our Path Back to Normal” and are happy to say they we are back to pre-pandemic levels in most areas.

We continue to innovate and transform our industry to best serve our customers across the country, helping them better serve their families.
