In contrast to traditional supply chain practices, Our innovative/ bottom-up approach puts business partners first. We are reverse engineering traditional supply chain practices. Everything starts with understanding our business clients’ needs and project scope. Once all the details gathered, our team comes up with a proposal that includes natural stone types, features, prices, and delivery dates.
We are primarily sourcing our products directly from quarries in Turkey, where we started in the early 2000s. This magnificent country:
- Holds the title of largest natural stone & marble exporter in the world as of the year 2019
- 2 Billion USD as of 2019
- 8 Million Tons / 320,000 containers equivalent – per day 15 containers
- Has around 40% of the World’s natural stone potential with a reserve of 5 billion cubic meter
- Is the land of more than 650 stone textures and colors
According to the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resource of Turkey, there are more than 1800 quarries, 2000 factories, and 9000 workshops in Turkey. Our recent policy is not to own quarries but to work with them closely to be agile. However, we own some unique quarries to bring product superiority & sustainability to our business partners. Most of these quarries are family-run enterprises with limited or no capability to serve international markets and complex projects. It is also a fact that there is a significant demand from the local market for these limited resources. All of these facts bring its own complexities and as a result there is a fierce competition for A level type of products.
As a SpaceStone, we are offering a one-stop solution for our international business clients’ needs by simplifying the value chain with truth, integrity and ethical business practices. We have built relationships with quarries and reliable operators, enabling us to source and supply exclusive and premium stone to the USA, China, South Korea, Canada, Australia, and others (see our country list).
Over the last twenty years, we have continually strived to enable our business to be recognized as one that has built its reputation on integrity, trust, and service to its business partners by maintaining long term relationships with its overseas quarry owners.
