Representatives of Baltic Stone visited the Almeria region of Spain, where Cuellar Stone Factory has been working since 1958. The Almeria region is famous for its stone mines, which is why many of the unwrought slabs of granite, marble and quartzite come to the Cuellar Stone premises in Cantoria. The processing of massive stone blocks requires special skills and powerful equipment. The machines of the Cuellar Stone cut through marble slabs as easy as the knife slices butter.
We were impressed to watch the very first working cycle, when the big blocks of stone are cut into thin slabs. These slabs are then used to make countertops, as well as wall, facade, and floor finishes.
The stone professionals at Cuellar Stone are like master sculptors. They know how to give the final stone products the most original shapes and carvings.
The Cuellar Stone factory buildings and warehouses are spread over 35 thousand square meters. Approximately 6,000 cubic meters of stone blocks are cut here every year. Offices and salons cover almost two thousand square meters, although looking at the main building from the street side you wouldn't suspect it. You'd rather say it is just a small beautiful castle.
Diego Martínez Cano, CEO and owner of Cuellar Stone, was happy to meet Lithuanians. He shared his memories when he visited Kaunas a decade ago, and watched basketball matches there. Does it need to be added that everyone in Spain knows Arvydas Sabonis?
