A Little Bit About Us : Since 1840!

A privately owned family company with more than seven generations of trade experience, we supply premium quality granite, limestone, marble, quartzite, sandstone, slate and travertine direct to wholesalers, processors and project contractors wherever you may be.

Our family origins in the stone trade did not start so recently, in fact stonemasonry is so far ingrained in our heritage that we cannot state with confidence when our family actually first practiced stonemasonry however we do have some records going back to the 1840s. Unfortunately many records have been destroyed over the years, especially during the second World War, for a brief look at the family's retail masonry business still operating from the same premises for the past nearly 100 years, please go to Leakes Masonry.

Production includes random or dimensioned slabs, ready-made counter tops or bathroom vanity units, calibrated tiles in a broad selection of sizes and textures including polished, honed, flamed, machined and antiqued finish.

Natural stone setts, cobbles and paving slabs in a variety of colours, sawn or natural riven, can be supplied for large civil engineering projects with reliability and cost-effectiveness.

Supplies of exclusive or traditional memorials and markers have been exported worldwide since the late 1960s.
.
Our factory in India from 1970 was the first to use sophisticated imported machinery and this quality standard has been maintained by continuous investment in state-of-the-art machinery. Day to day management of the business is controlled by family members therefore you can be assured that your enquiry will be dealt with promptly and efficiently.

The Future

The last few years have been extremely challenging for many business and especially so for those in the natural stone industry supplying the construction sector. Even though times have been tough we have managed to retain all our staff and actually increase our market share whilst others fell by the wayside. We do not anticipate the next few years to be any easier however our continued reinvestment in our factories, and especially so in many of our exclusive quarry colours plus exciting new ones currently being developed, we feel sure bodes well for both our customers and employees.
