Founded in 1967, Lacomar S.A. specializes in quarrying, manufacturing and sourcing the finest marbles and natural stones from all corners of the world. For three generations, the company has established a long tradition in exporting Greek white and colored marbles from self-owned quarries while also featuring a great selection of granites, travertine, limestones, onyx and semiprecious stones. The many years of experience, know-how and expertise have turned Lacomar into a leading player in the Greek marble and stone market as well as the international marble industries.
With marble being imprinted in our DNA since classical times, we continue to evolve with respect to our roots. We consider marble to be much more than a metamorphic rock or an old-fashioned material found in aged buildings. We look at marble and we see a premium, precious stone that can be used for construction as well as decorative purposes to adorn a space with its elegant, prestigious appearance and luxurious effect.
By bridging together our state-of-the-art production units, facilities and factories with the highly skilled team of experts and carefully sourced materials of the highest standards, we have managed to transform our business into a global empire always at the forefront of the latest technologies and ideas.
Our projects in Greece and abroad are a reflection of our lifelong work. A work we were excited to expand in Qatar in 2012 with Plazado Ventures LTD LLC in Doha and in Egypt in 2016 with Pearl Stone in Cairo, participating in these blooming markets with some of the biggest and most prestigious projects.
Our network of marble quarries and associates stretches across all parts of the world and continues to expand every year. From our self-owned quarries in Greece to our very old vendors in Spain, Italy, Portugal and China to all corners of the world. In 2012 we also began operating a company with very successful action in the Gulf area specializing in very high-end private and public projects. Carrying on with our business, in 2016 we made our first investment in Africa, successfully running a company, together with a quarry of white granite.
