About Company

Ionic Stone was created at the beginning of millennium when we realised that the UK building industry had been missing something basic but vital - good quality natural stone tiles at reasonable prices, Since then, Ionic Stone has unquestionably become the UK’s one of the largest stone distributors and project management firms. The current HQ in St Albans with 20,000 sqft storage-facility was acquired in 2006. After the global credit crisis, a decision was taken to vertically enlarge the firm into stone processing. In the following years, a state-of-the-art processing plant in Denizli was set up and two marble quarries (one in Burdur and the other in Balikesir) were also acquired. In 2015, the sustained growth of the company led to the acquisition of a purpose-built 70,000 sq ft distribution centre in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. The UK operation houses more than 200,000 m2 of tiles and slabs imported from all over the world.

Based in Denizli, the factory specialises in the processing of premium natural stone selections originating in Turkey with superior and precise fabrication made possible by the most modern machinery. Ionic Stone’ broad assortment includes exclusive, unique and hard-to-process stones: from exquisite but delicate marble ranges of Taurus Mountains, to warm-coloured grand travertine types of Pamukkale. Moreover, the processing plant is able to mass-produce innovative cuttings of marble tiles, such as different types of hexagons, trapezoids and chevrons. Ionic Stone has the ability to cut any exclusive shapes in a cost-effective way, should the volume be sufficient. 

In addition to working with the largest tile chains and builders depots in the US and the UK, the factory provides materials to the most prestigious projects around the globe. Some of the projects are:

- Grand Hyatt Doha, Qatar

- Msheireb Downtown Doha, Qatar

- Marina One, Singapore

- Nida Tower Istanbul, Turkey

- Hilton Baku, Azerbaijan

- Louis Vitton Tel Aviv, Israel

- Financial District Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

In 2015, the R&D division of the factory, called ION, was established. Ionic Stone is the only Turkish stone processing company that has been certified by two ministries of Turkey (Science, Technology & Industry, and Economy) to bear the "R&D Company" status as it requires constant investment in Research & Development, and formal set procedures. The R&D Company status enables companies to receive incentives for the R&D activities that they perform. ION works to improve the status of the current machinery, invent new ways of processing, and make special machines for the factory. In addition, ION supplies Turkish marble processing companies with specialist machinery (for more information, click here).
