The Man Behind The Granite

Upstate Granite Solutions is a product of passion, experience, and purpose. The journey of our President and Founder, Paul Nichols, is atypical for our stone industry. Born to missionary parents, Paul grew accustomed to moving new places and trying new things. The Nichols family landed in Greenville, South Carolina during Paul’s teenage years. These years proved to be the building blocks of what would become Upstate Granite Solutions.

Paul began his teenage years developing a working knowledge and passion for construction and remodeling homes. Paul’s passion for stone work was ignited on a remodeling project that introduced him to the material. He was drawn to the individuality, durability, and natural beauty of stone. The Upstate Granite Solutions team boasts over three decades of stonework and construction experience.

Upon completion of his bachelor’s degree, Paul answered the call to serve his country. As an Armor Officer in the United States Army, Paul achieved the rank of First Lieutenant before medically retiring in 2014. Perhaps the greatest product of his military service, though, is meeting his wife, Kelly, while stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia.

Paul takes great pride in being a husband to Kelly, father to Adam and Micah, and being a small business owner in Greenville. Paul’s greatest desire for Upstate Granite Solutions is to bring you:
