In 1984 Dernis International opened its doors in Norfolk, Virginia operating as an importer of European marble for the residential market. Within one year, Dernis launched its fireplace division, selling pre-cut fireplace surrounds to the building products industry. By 1988 Dernis built a 30,000 square foot plant in Virginia Beach that serves as its headquarters today. Dernis experienced rapid growth in the 1990's, selling marble and granite furniture tops to companies such as Thomasville, American Drew, Kincaid, Henredon, Millender and Hinkle Harris. As production of furniture tops moved overseas, Dernis launched its Hospitality Division in 1999 and quickly expanded its offerings to include wood products such as vanity bases and kitchen cabinets for hotel guest rooms. By forming strategic relationships with national industry leaders such IHG, Marriott, Hilton, Wyndham, and Choice Hotels, Dernis positioned itself as the premier supplier of stone tops and wood products in the hospitality and lodging industry. With the residential housing boom kicking into full gear in 2006 Dernis started it Commercial division and completed many of the largest multi- family housing projects in the Mid-Atlantic. Today, Dernis operates four separate divisions – Hospitality, Residential, Commercial and Fireplaces. Our customers include single family home owners, residential home remodelers, home builders, hotel procurement and FF&E companies, hotel management and ownership companies, designers, architects, general contractors, developers and fireplace companies.
