Supply Chain

Working closely with quality suppliers around the world

South Coast Stone excel in the procurement of some of the finest materials, both natural and artificial, from all over the globe. We have relationships with suppliers built over decades that still stand strong today, however are constantly growing our network of contacts to ensure we remain heavily connected in the ever growing market.

Sourcing the material itself is not always the whole procurement process. As of now, South Coast Stone have means of transporting slabs from across the world to our facility by road and by boat. This enables us to where necessary accelerate the lead time between purchasing slabs and having them manufactured ready for installation, which will come as music to any main contractor's ears. Our storage facility in Dorset is capable of housing over 800 slabs at any given moment, all stored safely and securely, immediately available for manufacturing.

Natural Stone suppliers such as Marble and Granite Centre make our lives as fabricators much simpler by collecting marbles, granites, limestones, onyx and slates from around the world for us to purchase. Where specific materials are not available from these suppliers we attempt to locate the slabs direct from the quarries. South Coast Stone also use the community of suppliers to ensure the quality and value is the best it can be.
