Vetrazzo, the Richmond company that turns recycled glass into colorful countertops and won accolades from Forbes Magazine, is leaving town.

The owners are selling the business to Polycor, which runs a marble quarry operation in Georgia and can manufacture Vetrazzo's countertops more efficiently. Polycor will be able to produce four times as much Vetrazzo product as the Richmond plant, said James Sheppard, one of the Vetrazzo owners.

Look RenaudFR, you need to get a life. You have never even been to America. You are just going off what your college professor has said. I know more about you than you think.

If people from New Jersey, Indiana, and Florida can constantly post how wonderful California is, why can't a cheese eater post too?

Actually, this is not bad. California is a tremendous incubator for new businesses. If they eventually end up being sold (which makes money for the original owners to start other business ideas) that's just the way business works.

I'm constantly amazed at the publications that say "California is not a good place to start a business." It's a GREAT place to start a business, as Vetrazzo shows! Obviously Polycor wasn't smart enough to start the business themselves and they had to buy the idea from a California company.
