Quality assurance at the choosing
Natural stones have become a very popular building and decorative material. Whether as flooring, stairs, bathrooms or patio slabs - the usage for natural stones is almost unlimited.
Only the best quality for our customers - for this reason we conduct a thorough quality assurance while choosing the stones. This procedure consists of several components.
All natural stones are selected on site by a team of experienced employees - so to speak the get touched "live". So we ca already see in the beginning of the selection process, where the stones are exactly from and how they were broken down. Only professionally degraded natural stones are selected by us.
The next step of quality assurance while choosing, concerns the quality and internal structure of the natural stones. The stones are wetted with water, whereby their structure is visible for experienced eyes. Based on this structure, we recognize the quality and suitability of the stone for the particular application. If we determine that a stone does not meet our quality standards, we do not select it. Only the best are used in our product range. Because only the best is good enough for our customers.
The natural stones come from different countries, for example Brazil, Italy, India or from African countries - depending on where the best stones can be found. We have everywhere offices on site, so that at any time employees are available to locate high-quality natural stones. Once this is the case, the quality assurance comes to wear. Quickly again beautiful natural stones are on the way to us - and soon also to our customers.
Child labor: For us a taboo!
The endorsement of child labor is a violation of basic human rights. Despite explicit existing bans, child labor is practiced in some countries outside the European Union, among others sustainably practiced in India and Japan.
We distance ourselves emphatically from child labor. There are no children working in our quarries or quarries. Through unannounced visits and spot checks this is ensured. Furthermore, due to fully automatic processing of the slabs and tile formats child labor is impossible.

Orphaned and abandoned children find there security and a loving home again.
