who are we?
It was the year 2001, three brothers shared a dream, a dream that has evolved into a vision that is today shaping up the natural stones and marble industry in India. As the tastes and aspirations of the new age India evolved, there was a phenomenal rise in the demand for exquisite marble and other natural stones. It was this need that paved the way for Stonex India, and in its pursuit of excellence Stonex created a legacy synonymous with grandeur, finesse and quality in the sector of natural stones. Today, with an array of over 300 natural stones responsibly sourced from Italy, Spain, Greece, Brazil & Turkey, we at Stonex go the extra mile to exceed all customer expectations. Another key distinction that sets us ahead of the curve is our unwavering focus on service and customer satisfaction. With intricate and extensive processes that enhance and aid a customer’s journey from need assessment to regular follow ups and maintenance, we have cemented our legacy as one of the most trusted brands in the industry.
With every passing year, we add fresh new feathers to our proverbial cap. Take the year 2017 for example, we launched our advanced manufacturing plant at Kishangarh which comprises of state-of-the-art technologies giving us a distinct edge in quality and production capacity. Besides this, we also sparked one of the biggest revolutions in the marble industry by becoming the first marble brand in the world to put a True Price Tag on all our stones, ushering in order and transparency in a highly disorganized market. We at Stonex India, have just begun on our journey to the top and have accomplished much in an incredibly short span of time. However, we believe we still have miles to go and many more milestones to create.
The logo brings together our two core values in the form of two congruent dots one in Blue and the other in Purple. Blue is a colour that symbolizes trust, reliability and loyalty. So the Blue colour stands for our personalized service and the dedicated relationship we share with our customers. Purple symbolizes luxury, grandeur and rarity and our purple colour stands for our product – our stone collection that is rare and luxurious. Thus, the new identity reflects our values and the philosophy behind Stonex.
