A letter from Managing Director, Julian Wood:
Global Stone under new Ownership
As you may have already heard we are now under new ownership as a result of the sale of Global Stone (Colchester) Ltd by Kent Blaxill our parent company, Builders Merchant, to our key supplier Shree Agencies of India.
Global Stone was established as a quality wholesaler of natural stone paving 16 years ago to supply the domestic paving market and from the beginning we have had a very strong relationship with Shree which has helped underpin the company’s growth.
What it means for our customers
As a leader in product innovation, we have developed the widest choice of natural stone paving products and quality porcelain tiles for the exterior paving market. We are delighted that the purchase by Shree, brings with it increased investment to take the business to another level.
I have been with the company since its inception and alongside Clare Morgan, Commercial Director, and Sara Cullis, Marketing Director lead a strong team who have all moved over with the sale. Normal trading relationships will remain unchanged and Global Stone will continue to be a UK run business.
We are excited to open a new chapter in our journey with Shree Agencies who we know very well; I believe this will make our business and team even stronger for the future. We will continue to innovate and develop new products, benefitting from increased investment and focus on making the business sustainable for future.
If you have any questions regarding this announcement, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Thank you for your business during 2018 and we look forward to working with you in 2019 to grow our businesses together. Wishing you a great Christmas and prosperous New Year.
