Kate Tonkin

Materials Testing Specialist – Finishes Evaluation Services

Kate Tonkin oversees the Surface Finish Evaluation department, encompassing slip-resistance, accelerated wear, stain-resistance and sealer selection. She is motivated by seeing how the effective use of dimension stone contributes to outstanding building projects.

Kate has been with Stone Initiatives since 2012. She has four children who enjoy sports, and this had led her to undertake research into the slip resistance of outdoor sports court surfaces. Outside of work, Kate likes to spend time travelling, cake-making and running.
