CED Stone Group Celebrates 40 years

Post date: 26 Sep, 2018

Using British Stone - by CED Stone Group Managing Director Giles Heap

Post date: 31 Aug, 2018

We all know that the UK currently imports huge amounts of stone from China and India. Interestingly though, for commercial and public realm projects, we are seeing more and more clients choose European stone over Indian or Chinese stone despite the higher associated costs. Why? More often than not this is simply because quality European stone from countries like Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany and France can be imported with quicker lead times.
