The company behind the Alcantara petrous materials

We think that mind state is vital in modern and globally business. Customers are more and more companies demanding and worth on how things are doing. Philosophy of well done work must live in the company, must permeate people and the whole processes.

Our philosophy of work involves universal values such a quality, compromise, integrity and innovation. Such elements apply to the whole process of our business in order to take care of what Mother Nature give to us.

We protect the environment

Alcantara Stone is a company absolutely involved with the environment from many years ago. Respect and take care of the environment where we develop our work, have always been a firmly belief, beyond any fashion. Our philosophy and operating model has always included an exquisite care of our quarries, fully electrified by the overall network of electric supply and not by independent generators, recycling and reuse of water and sludge, recycling of materials, etc. In addition all of our quarries have recovery plans and reforestation of the areas of activity.

We take care of Mother Nature

Stone is a natural resource. However, the way it is quarried, processed, transported and used determines its environmental footprint. Building on Alcantara Stone's long commitment to treat our product's source—the earth—with respect, we are dedicated to developing and maintaining stone processing practices that minimize the impact on the environment.
