Owned by Renato Fischer, Planeta Pedra is a medium-sized company for ornamental stone production based in Cachoeiro De Itapemirim, ES, Brazil. Planeta Pedra has been supplying the international market for the last seven years, and the company has been achieving great growing results during that period, which includes the economic crisis period between 2008 and 2009.

Sedna Extra is one of Planeta Pedra's signature colors.

The company's main activity is to export granite, marble, quartzite and soapstone slabs to the North American and European market. The color collection includes: Sedna Copper Canyon, Cosmos, Minsk Green, Cianitus, Hurricane, Persa Caravelas, Netuno Bordeaux, Florata White and many other exotic materials.

In addition, there are 23 quarries located in different parts of Brazilian territory, owned or in partnership, which are part of the company's color collection.

Today, the company has approximately 120 customers all over the world -- most notably in the U.S. market, which is responsible for 85% of Planeta Pedra exportations. The turnover increased 42% in 2010 compared to 2009. The company has been financing specific training and technical studies to improve the knowledge of its team.

The growth respecting the environment is another concern, with Planeta Pedra promoting actions to preserve native vegetation and water resources around the quarries. Finally, the major concern is to keep the close relationship with its customers through international fairs, visits and especially promoting the follow up to verify the performance of its customers and products.
