Business Profile

Specialising in sales of random and cropped building stone, crazy paving and block stone, this Stone Merchant offers tremendous upside potential for a motivated buyer or investor.

A well developed forward thinking business, still retaining traditional values, but having a high degree of modern day business acumen, this business supplies natural cropped stone, which when guillotined or cropped, produces a high quality building stone. The natural colour variation of the stone can be used to beautiful effect and the random sizes ensure the individuality of any built structure.

A seasoned stock of block stone is held at the premises year round, and is available in three price grades, which reflect the qualities of the stone.

The company also supplies natural rockery stone in varying sizes to suit ever-popular landscaping requirements, an ideal choice of crazy paving for patios, driveways and pond edging. The frost resistance properties of the stone will ensure no breakdown of the stone over successive winters and gives a stunning appearance.
