Further information
Stone Italiana Spa was founded in 1979 in Zimella (Verona) and is to date worldwide leading company and pioneer in manufacturing recomposed quartz and marble slabs. 
The company owns two production plants and is UNI EN ISO 9001:2000, UNI EN 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 certified. One plant is located in Zimella (Verona) and is used for producing small slabs for indoor floors and wall claddings and big slabs for tops and cut-to-size items. The other production site is located in Villesse (Gorizia) and is used for manufacturing big slabs for tops and various items.
Stone Italiana production is carried out exclusively in Italy and is therefore 100% Made in Italy. The historical headquarters in Zimella is known to designers and architects for its R&D laboratory, which showcases the extraordinary ability of the company to create and develop materials, colours and custom finishes. This lab is equipped with the most advanced tools for characterizing  materials and allows continuous check of quality standards as required by clients. In Zimella we produce small slabs in recomposed quartz and marble (125x125cm) from which we obtain tiles for walls and floors. Here we also produce big slabs 305 x140 cm by means of a cutting-edge plant developed thanks to more than 35 years of experience in this sector. The plant in Villesse is used exclusively for the production of big slabs.
Both Stone Italiana plants have an equipped “cut-to-size” department, where kitchen and vanity tops, stairs, skirting, raised floors, outdoor wall claddings and water jet cut items are produced. 
Besides producing slabs and tiles, in 2011 Stone Italiana introduced its UDESIGN collection: this was initially developed in order to complete the kitchen environment (quartz sinks production), whereas now it provides also bathroom items such as washbasins and shower trays. Available in various colours and shapes, these are all made in the same material and present the same quality peculiarities which have made Stone Italiana quartz famous worldwide.   
The main technical features of the material produced by the company are:
- No imbibition 
- High abrasion resistance, therefore ideal for high foot traffic floors 
- Excellent resistance to acids, therefore suitable for vanity and kitchen tops
- Possibility to have pieces of max. 300 cm of length with no joints
- Easy to clean and maintain
- Compact materials free of cracks and slots
Moreover, Stone Italiana production and organization system allows to:
- Manufacture big quantities of material without altering the level of quality offered
- Obtain many sizes thanks to the use of CNC water jet cutting machines. 
- Supply material in customized colours, thickness and sizes  

Aesthetical superiority and technical quality are the goals Stone Italiana strives for every single day.
