History

Our journey in man-made stone world begun short after a coincidental encounter with Donald Crites in 1996 Virginia, USA. Mr. Crites had a small yet very successful decorative artificial stone manufacturing plant whose products were surprisingly similar to natural stones. Two years after this lucky yet defining moment, we were able to produce our first man-made stone in Turkey, with the assist of Mr. Crites.

1996

The idea of manufacturing Manufactured Stone in Turkey came up when I coincidentally met the owner of Rock Replicas of Virginia Donald Crites in 1996 in Virginia/USA. Crites had started manufacturing his own invention Manufactured Stone in 1961 which had no analogue yet. He improved his technique over the years, and the products in his small but very successful decorative artificial stone manufacturing plant were unbelievably similar to natural stones. Two years after our encounter with Crites, we manufactured our first manufactured stone in Turkey with his assistance. In addition to its amazing naturality, its lightness and readiness for use made this product a very good idea.

Crites also pioneered today’s biggest manufacturing firms with the techniques he developed. Providing manufacturing services with the brand name StoneWrap which was started by using the know-how and experiences of Donald Crites, our firm today raised its quality above world standards by proceeding on the road of Donald Crites and investing in advanced technologies.
