Surrey Marble and Granite, based near Fernhurst, are hoping that their recent conversion to digital will ensure they remain at the forefront when it comes to kitchen and bathroom design.

They have recently incorporated into their production, two latest-generation CNC 5-axis saws, along with a laser templating facility. Furthermore, they have introduced two new materials – Corian and concrete – to add to their existing worktop range.

The laser templating tool takes all the measurements of your worktop space, whether it’s kitchen worktops, backsplashes, shower enclosures or fireplaces. It carries a high accuracy level, ensuring that the final product will fit perfectly.

Boyd McGuire is an industry expert from Tulsa, Oklahoma, where they have been using digital planning and cutting for a few years now. He says: “When you show up at a client’s house, and pull out one of the laser template tools, their eyes light up, and your credibility skyrockets... The idea of anything but digital is now absurd for us.” (Source: Stoneworld.com)

As well as accuracy, the other main benefits of switching over to digital are that it’s much more efficient than measuring by hand, and can drastically reduce production costs as it only takes one person to operate, and can be done quickly.

The templating tool can be used to produce CAD/technical drawings, which means that jobs can be signed off on site, without having to return back to the office to produce drawings and plans. The measurements taken from the laser tool can be programmed right into the cutting machine, for the final product to be made.

The new Cobalm 5-axis CNC machines allow for the cutting tool to move on five different axes at the same time. Traditional machines use only three axes, but these new machines allow the cutting tool to approach from all directions.

In addition to these new digital machines, Surrey Marble & Granite have also introduced some new materials, to expand their existing portfolio of stone and quartz products. Company owner Cedric Mattock explains: “Our range of products includes natural stone (granite, marble, slate and limestone,) and all major quartz brands, including Silestone and Caesarstone.”

He adds: “quartz worktops are becoming a popular choice of surface to suit modern styles and living. Stone and quartz products will last a lifetime and can even be reused when your kitchen cabinets have reached the end of their life.”

Corian (also known as solid surface) is a man-made product, which can mimic the appearance of granite, stone or marble, with the advantage that it is non-porous and doesn’t require much maintenance compared with natural stone worktops. It can also be moulded into various shapes, so is ideal for sinks, bathrooms, etc. It comes in a range of colours and styles.

Surrey Marble & Granite were established in 2000 by Cedric Mattock, who has a huge wealth of experience in commercial and residential properties. He saw a niche in the market for a quality bespoke manufacturer of stone worktops and products in the Surrey area, and the business has gone from strength to strength in the past 16 years.

Their range of products includes kitchen and bathroom worktops, wall cladding and flooring, interior staircases, fireplaces, and commercial interiors such as bars, offices and restaurants. They also manufacture bespoke marble bathrooms for luxury super yachts. This is all offered with a full survey and installation for all types of residential and commercial properties.

“We supply any type of stone product, from single hearths to large commercial projects,” explains Cedric. “Our company ethos revolves around customer service, quality and choice of product. We will guide a client through the entire supply and installation process including planning and careful advice on product choices.”

“We pride ourselves on providing a friendly and professional service in all areas of our business. We feel this makes us stand from our competitors. A well staffed and very experienced office is always available during office hours for any projects clients would like to discuss.”

Cedric hopes the recent acquisition of the new machinery and laser template will ensure that Surrey Marble & Granite remain at the forefront of quality and service within the stone industry. He says: “our plan for the future is to build on our already outstanding reputation as the best in the stone industry for the retail sector.”
