The process

experience and tradition from our quarry to your home

From its extraction in the quarry to its use in a piece of work, marble at MANCHAMAR goes through a number of stages that can take from one to three months. The process begins with its extraction, in which the land is removed to lay bare the mine faces and enable the blocks to be extracted using diamond wire machines and perforators. In the same quarry the blocks are cut into smaller pieces which, once selected for their quality and size and numbered for control purposes, are transported to the plant (25 km from the quarry) by special 4×4 lorries.

Once in the plant, the process continues with a further quality control that determines which blocks are destined for the production of slabs using the gang saw (those that are largest and with the least cracks) and which blocks will be used to make flagstones in different formats using the block cutter. This is just the beginning of the production stage and is followed by the appropriate finish or superficial work to give the stone the most suitable finish to meet the needs of the client: polished, flamed, honed, aged etc. After another quality check to ensure the correct measurements and finish, the product is packed in crates, wrapped and prepared for delivery to the client.

At the same time commercial operations are carried out in the office. The service is tailor-made for each client. Once the client’s real needs have been established, we proceed to confirm the order, the quantity of each variety of material, deadlines, mode of transport and receipt time of the product, from the time the material is loaded up to the time it reaches its destination. At all times the client receives detailed information about the production status. Once the client receives their order, MANCHAMAR then offers an after-sales service in order to supervise and evaluate client satisfaction with both the service and the material. As you can see, at MANCHAMAR, natural stone goes through numerous stages before it is seen in any construction or decorative project, with the aim of guaranteeing a product of the highest quality and beauty.
