About Our Company
Olive Mill is a family owned and operated company that has taken great pride in manufacturing quality countertops and offering outstanding customer service for the past 20 years.
Olive Mill originated as a general contracting business with John and Linda Graves as the original owners. They discovered the DuPont Corian product while working on a project and fell in love with it. Consequently Countertops by Olive Mill was born. John and Linda's youngest son Andy, who has worked in the family business since the very first countertop was fabricated and installed, has become the newest and proud owner of Olive Mill. Andy, wife Valerie and the entire staff at Olive Mill continue the tradition of the finest quality craftsmanship and outstanding customer service still today.
Olive Mill has added to their selection of quality materials through out the course of the years to include a number of "solid surface" products like DuPont Corian, Staron by Samsung, and Hi Macs by LG Chem. Olive Mill has also added natural stone (granite, marble, travertine, etc.) and quartz (Caesarstone, Staron Quartz, LG Viatera, etc.) fabrication and installation services to our growing line of products.
Although Olive Mill continues to add quality products to our line, we still pride ourselves on maintaining the same great quality, service and craftsmanship. Our continued commitment is to provide our customers with a variety of quality products made by reputable manufacturers, provide the highest quality customer service, be respectful of our customers' time and property, and provide quality craftsmanship in a timely and professional manner. As of October of 2010, we became certified by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as a LEAD-SAFE CERTIFIED FIRM. This certification allows Olive Mill to safely remove lead based paint associated with countertop, shower and tub surround removal.
Today we are involved with many industry specific websites and magazines to further educate the consumer.

Andy Graves frequently helps Consumer Reports writing staff with any questions they may have for upcoming articles. The 2007 and 2008 'Kitchen Countertop Review" and the "Kitchen Buying Guide", feature helpful information from Graves. Consumer Reports recently completed a "10 Questions for..." for their Kitchen and Bath Blog.
Over the past 20 years we have worked for a variety of customers from the smallest vanity top for a residential homeowner to larger corporations such as Disneyland, Arrowhead Pond (Now the Honda Center), Getty Museum, Angel Stadium, and Large Hospital expansions. Our diverse product offerings, upgrades in current fabrication technology (ie CNC and panel saw machinery), extensive residential and commercial project experience, and the retention of highly trained, quality employees allows Olive Mill to suit the needs of all of our customers' projects no matter how large or small.
