Strata Stones is the UK division of Stone Age, India’s leading producer and exporter of ethically sourced natural stones.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

Like most things you make or build,  the selection of quality raw materials is fundamental to the durability of the investment you will make,  as well as knowing exactly where and how the material used for manufacture is extracted. Only Strata have a team of directly employed specialists who check each stage of the process, from sourcing the stone to the manufacture of the paving you buy to install. This guarantees our products are manufactured to the highest standards, in accordance with the harmonized European standards for manufacturing compliance and material sourcing, and is embraced by the CE mark as standard on all our products.

Strata Stones are also a member of the UK Stone Federation, with whom we work to validate and support the credentials we offer to our customers. In addition, all our documentation, procedures and practices are independently audited and comply with ISO9001:2008 and SA8000:2008, by TUV Rheinland, a  leading international body for the certification of safety and quality in products, processes and management systems.

WHO ARE WE?

Strata Stones is the UK arm of the Stone Age Group of companies, based in India, where we operate our own quarries and manufacturing facilities. As a UK supplier of a portfolio of natural stone products from our own quarries in India, we are the stone company of choice with our production and factory operations currently supplying 48 countries across every continent in the world.

The heart of our process is a deep knowledge of the raw material, gained from decades of expertise in extracting the stone from our own quarries in Kota, Rajasthan, and from our key partners strategically situated across India. Our team of natural stone specialists select the stone blocks on-site at each quarry to ensure it is free
from faults and imperfections, before transporting to one of our three highly automated manufacturing facilities located near Jaipur, India.

Only customers buying Strata products can be assured that the stone they buy is sourced from quarries and manufacturing operations that fully embrace ethical trading standards

QUARRY AND FACTORY OPERATIONS

OUR OWN QUARRY OPERATIONS AND FACTORY FACILITIES OFFERING MULTIPLE NATURAL STONE FINISHES AND PROCESSES ARE UNEQUALLED BY ANY OTHER UK SUPPLIER OF INDIAN NATURAL STONE PRODUCTS.

When you buy stone from Strata, you do so in the knowledge that our Indian based teams are regularly checking the material used, and that the many different finishes shown in this brochure are processed through our own factories, thereby checked by our Quality Assurance teams before dispatch to our customers worldwide.

Due to significant investment in our stone processing factories we are able to offer an extensive range of finishes as you will see in this brochure. This investment enables us to customise products and finishes to produce outstanding statement product for our customers in over 40 countries.

Our attention to quality and extensive range of stone solutions means we are able to supply the UK landscaping market, in addition to the interior and home furnishing sectors utilising both traditional sawing and processing techniques for natural stone as well as 21st century CNC computer controlled technology.

NO PACKING AT QUARRIES

Most companies exporting natural stone are inclined to get it processed and packed at the quarry head. Such a process gives no specific guarantee that there has been an adherence to the labour laws besides the quality standards.

Being a natural stone, there can always be variation, but some companies in the UK add words like BLEND or MIX to the name of the stone in a bid to get around the problem of the extreme mix of colours.

Lots of quarries have different colours of stone running through the seams. When products are packed at the quarry, it is impossible to carry out a selection process that ensures that the quality and colour of the stone meets specific standards.

At Strata, we refuse to pack anything at the quarry head. All the raw material is transported to our manufacturing facilities at Bundi and Jaipur ensuring consistency and quality of our product.
