While our stone might get your attention, it's our staff who truly sets us apart. Every member of our well-informed team will go to any length to ensure your ideas come to life. Our passion and devotion are unmatched, and our love of natural masterpieces is what drives us to constantly seek out the finest stone available.
At Global Granite & Marble® our staff is passionate about what we do. We are committed to showing our customers how that separates us from other suppliers. Our unending knowledge about the natural stone and quartz industry is something that our staff wants to pass along as we help our customers discover the perfect materials, patterns, and colors for their next project.
The constant and never-ending quest for the finest natural stone products available is the common goal of all those who call Global Granite & Marble® home. All of us - from warehouse personnel to designers, sales reps, and customers - are constantly seeking input to realize the latest trends in design applications for natural stone. Many times, we are instrumental in setting the trend for new uses of stone based on ideas gathered from our extensive travels. Our Purchasing team regularly travels to such places as Spain, Italy, Brazil, India, and China to personally select the materials we will offer to our customers.
Believe it or not, the procurement of natural stone from around the world is not as glamorous as it sounds. However, we are true “Rock Hounds” and would much rather be four-wheeling up the side of a slippery dirt road in a remote part of Brazil than basking in the sun on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. Finding a new quarry of beautiful material is what we love to do and we feel that this is reflected in the quality of product that Global® supplies.
We carefully select the companies we work with in order to make sure that they are providing a quality and safe working environment for their employees, utilizing the latest in cutting and polishing technology, and adhering to the strict local environmental regulations for water recycling, soil erosion prevention, and remediation of the land when the quarrying process is finished.
The purchasing process is truly a team effort at Global®. We try to involve all our staff in various aspects of the procurement process. The purchasing team regularly travels with staff designers and sometimes even customers to have a well-balanced opinion on new materials being considered. All this effort helps ensure that the natural stone materials you see in Global’s® showrooms and warehouses are the very finest that the world has to offer.
