A poor and even mediocre work is done today in the stone business (whether in transportation, tiling, supervision, etc....)

This has forced us to adapt and find solutions by asking questions to competent people in the field in "Italy, France, Spain & Germany".

These consultations have helped us reduce the bad performances done on stone on one hand and on the other hand have enriched greatly our experience.
