Mármoles J. Rubio Morales is a family-run business, traditionally dedicated to stone work. The handling and elaboration of stone has been progressively developed and mastered during over 100 years, where each new generation involved in the craft has known how to add their own ideas and necessary techniques to adapt the craft to its time.
The business is involved in all stages and works of the process, from the extraction to the elaboration, and carving of the natural stone. It is worth highlighting their traditional rubble masonry works using granite, where their productive capacity and level of finishes have greatly benefitted by the incorporation of modern machinery, wisely brought together with manually carried out works, which make each of the commissions unique.
They mainly use their own granite – Amarillo Jara – as well as whatever of the wide range of materials available on the market. They carry out stone works for public buildings – constructions and interior designs – as well as more specific commissions. Their skilled workforce enables them to also be able to manufacture sculptures and artistic works.
The production processes of the business can be understood from the perspective of sustainability, in such a way that it minimizes the effects on the environment. Thus, they follow zero-waste policies, which includes the use of a water recirculation system, the compaction of soils and the entire use of all materials.
Fourth generation dedicated to the craft, which determines the distinct family character of the business.
They have workers who have delivered classes in different schools linked to stone work.
