Gramazini marks two decades of stone production

January 5, 2012
Founded by João Antonio Thomazini and Maria Rita Debona Thomazini, in Cachoeiro De Itapemirim, ES, Brazil, Gramazini has enjoyed more than 20 years in the ornamental stone sector. The company has been striving to build up a solid business and meet future challenges. One of the outcomes of those efforts is diversifying the company actions in the market, which includes Brazil, the U.S., Europe and Asia.

Gramazini is continually investing in its production facilities and other company infrastructure.

Investments to research and open new quarries have always been one of the Gramazini’s priorities, which guarantee consistent supply and the ability to meet market demands.

Gramazini has developed a solid market for several materials, highlighting the quarries of Timbalada, Golden Crystal, Mascarello, Mascalzoni, Golden Taupe, Mascaratto, New Ornamental, New Venetian Gold, White Dallas and others.

Gramazini’s facility is established in Cachoeiro de Itapemirim, and its machinery includes gangsaws, a high-efficiency polish line, a resin line, tile production, and the warehouse, which is located 87 miles from the port in Vitoria.

A new industrial site was also developed at Barra de São Francisco in Espirito Santo. The company’s blockyard is strategically placed in Barra de São Francisco, and with thousands of square meters, the facility will be upgraded to become a modern industrial plant. The location was chosen to be in proximity of the most important Gramazini quarries, which should guarantee faster distribution.

Gramazini is also investing in a multi-wire saw machine to increase the slab production, an Italian polishing line with high production capability and warehouses in order to stock the new production. The construction should be concluded by 2012.

“The greatest challenge of Gramazini is to promote and to enhance new products and the business, which guarantees the future of the company with ethics and sustainability,” said John Lucas Thomazini, the current CEO and the oldest son of the company’s founder.
