Looking back to history

The word "philosophy" comes from the Greek φιλοσοφία (philosophia), which literally means "love of wisdom".

Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems and is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument.

In Alcantara Stone we push it to the limits and we are totally embedded of the whole significance of the word, applied to our people, our field of work and our company.

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