From the beginning, the company recognized the pivotal role that raw material played in leading the market. Therefore, its team of geologists has focused on identifying locations that have unusual varieties of granite in substantial quantities, using its intuition to spot colors that would satisfy both current and future trends.
Most of the company's raw materials come from its nine quarries spread across the country, each with its unique geological character that is reflected in the granite it yields. Diamond wire saw technology is used to extract the raw material in optimum sizes with maximum eco-sensitivity. These quarries work around-the-clock, producing more than 2,000 cubic meters of rough blocks every month, assuring a continuous supply of uniform quality material to its customers.
Combined, the company's' factories produce about 6 million square feet of slabs and tiles annually, in finishes such as polished, honed, flamed, bushhammered and brushed or antiqued. Pokarna Ltd. also offers custom-fabricated granite products such as vanities, kitchen countertops and tabletops.
Pokarna Ltd. has firmly established its presence in the global market with exports to Europe, the Far East and the U.S. The company's employees feel privileged to count some of the most prestigious multi-national companies amongst its customers, according to Pokarna. Pokarna Ltd. has recently completed some large commercial projects in the U.S., which include: The Alexan, Buckhead Village, Atlanta, GA; Reliant Stadium, Houston, TX; and the Radisson Hotel, Flint, MI.
The company has a team of over 600 employees, which is â€œunited like a family with a deep sense of oneness and a common purpose,â€ according to Pokarna.
Through all its achievements, the company has remained environmentally conscious, and has instituted major tree plantation programs at all its sites and factories, besides safely neutralizing effluents before disposing of them and recycling water throughout the manufacturing process.
