THE MERGER BETWEEN SARKIS BROS AND GOSFORD QUARRIES WHICH TOOK EFFECT IN MAY 2014, SHOWCASES THAT THE AUSTRALIAN SANDSTONE INDUSTRY IS CONTINUING TO GROW AS MORE PEOPLE LOOK TO USE NATURAL AUSTRALIAN PRODUCTS.
The merger has brought with it a variety of long-term benefits. Along with economies of scale resulting in better prices and more options, it has allowed us to introduce a broad range of specialised services such as in-house designers, heritage consultants, 3D modelling and highly trained personnel to provide an unparalleled level of service to the design sector.
What sets us apart is how we assist our clients in enhancing their designs and ideas, even creating new ideas and designs for consideration, a complimentary service to help in improving profitability of a project whilst not compromising its integrity.
Along with the fact that the merger has brought a combined 140 years of experience to the marketplace, our new Gosford Quarries management has assembled only the finest team that strives to provide our customers with confidence and peace of mind. To ensure the highest quality standards, we continuously test the stone to confirm the accuracy and currency of the geotechnical results and we make these readily available for all customers.
As new business markets have evolved, so too have building designs and systems. At the new Gosford Quarries, we aim to lead the market through our state of the art technology and machinery. This has revolutionised the way we process our sandstone, opening up new possibilities for designers with sandstone now becoming a material of choice for fluid designs.
With the merger, our continual investment in capital equipment has allowed us to surpass our previous environmental standards. Greater efficiencies in production have resulted in reduced wastage, which in turn is more environmentally sustainable. Not to mention Gosford Quarries’ power in salvaging stone from excavation sites which would otherwise have been destroyed. Making sandstone a more attractive solution to achieve “green values” is part of our ongoing environmental charter. Gosford Quarries continues to work closely with environmental and mining authorities as well as local communities to ensure that we play a key role in protecting Australian land for the future.
