London natural stone and terrazzo specialist Diespeker & Co has launched a new initiative for 2018 to offer an expanded range of high quality marble and stone from its Ormside Street premises in Bermondsey, south-east London.
The move means that Diespeker can offer around 3,000 slabs from stock on site in more than 140 types of marble - from Travertine Classico and Calacatta to Rosso Francia and Pietra Savigny.
This enhanced range gives contractors, architects and designers plenty to choose from that is instantly available, shortening the supply chain and substantially cutting lead times. And with state-of-the-art cutting, grinding and polishing machines at the company’s factory, Diespeker can fulfil contracts from initial order to installation, giving one point of contact throughout each project.
Diespeker MD John Krause says: "While more recently we have been dominating the terrazzo market, Diespeker has its roots firmly in the natural stone sector. This [new move] is a really exciting development for us and I look forward to the Diespeker name becoming once again synonymous with marble as well as terrazzo."
The increased range will even have a positive impact on the company’s award-winning, bespoke terrazzo service, as the processing of the slab will make available a wider choice of aggregate from crushed waste for the terrazzo, facilitating unique surface design opportunities.
Diespeker is currently updating its website to reflect the wider range available. This will include an option to request samples and will present the opportunity to order online. In the meantime, enquiries can be made to the Diespeker office on 020 7358 0160 or by email to [email protected].
Diespeker enjoyed its busiest year yet in 2017, as well as winning a South East Manufacturing Award. With business booming, it has taken on three new employees to help with the workload.
