Apex Stone Sourcing Ltd – Leader in Sourcing Natural Stone Products for Prestigious Residential & Commercial Projects
Apex Stone Sourcing Ltd is the go-to company if you are looking for quality natural stone products for your residential or commercial projects. With over 60 years of collective experience in sourcing natural stone for many high-end residential and commercial projects, the team can source any stone to suit your requirements. Apex Stone Sourcing Ltd offers personalised natural stone sourcing solutions that get you the right material for the right price. Jon Quinn, the founder of Apex Stone Sourcing Ltd gave Herts Review an insight into the company and his aspirations.
Jon has a wealth of experience and expertise in natural stone design, sourcing, and installation. Previously working in commercial roles for a national supplier and manufacturer of natural stone products, he was directly involved in the successful delivery of many commercial projects in London for Westminster City Council, the City of London Corporation, Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, and the Royal Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham amongst others.
While taking on and delivering major projects for his employers at the time was great, Jon always wanted to have his own business. “I really enjoyed being part of teams that have delivered on these major and in some cases iconic projects. The experience, expertise, contacts, and relationships I have built over the years are so valuable. I always knew I wanted to do something for myself. Take the plunge as they say. It is an opportunity to offer exceptional customer service and implement the great ideas I have.”
According to Jon, it is important to understand natural stone and how it should be used. Not everything built is done correctly. The idea behind the design and how the area will be used are key considerations before choosing or recommending a product. This is one area Apex Stone Sourcing stands out. Their initial consultation is an important part of their service. “We ask a lot of questions to understand what the client has set out to achieve. They see our samples and we discuss the benefits of each product. We also highlight the requirements for those materials.”
From its base in Berkshire, Apex Stone Sourcing works on projects across the UK. The company does not keep stock, have a yard or lorries. Products are sourced from suppliers across the country, Europe, and Asia and delivered directly to clients. This simple and efficient supply process means you get products within agreed timelines. While the team focuses on the technical specification (drawings, scheduling the quarry to produce the material) and sourcing of the right stone products, they also recommend a network of experienced and competent tradesmen for installation.
Jon and the team have a lot of expertise in all aspects of hard landscaping for office projects, residential development projects, shopping centres, town centres, and high-end properties. Some of the stone products on offer include Yorkstone, Porcelain, Cast Stone, Sandstone, Granite, Limestone amongst others. With a wide network of contacts and suppliers in the UK, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Italy, India, and China, the team can source any stone product you need.
Apex Stone Sourcing Ltd officially started trading in July 2018 with a focus on residential projects which have a shorter turnaround time. The Apex team work with Architects, Interior Designers, and Landscapers to deliver many ambitious residential projects. For most projects, the team are involved in the early stage up to implementation.
Although the covid-19 pandemic lockdown slowed down a lot of commercial projects, the company has seen a strong demand in the residential sector as more homeowners have embarked on home improvement projects. Fortunately, there has been limited disruption to their services as a lot of consultation and negotiations are done on the phone. Overall, it has been a remarkably busy and successful year for the company with over 12 months of projects in the pipeline. According to Jon, Apex is on track to deliver on its 5-year plan.
Sourcing stone can be quite technical. Getting good quality products for the right price can be tricky. Samples are thoroughly scrutinised to meet requirements. The key is quality and affordability. What Apex offers is a one-to-one consultation with each customer. You are not asked to go to a showroom or e-commerce store to make a choice. People buy from people they like. Apex will hold your hand all the way and help you make the right choice for your project.
“We bring the same work ethic, dedication, and attention to detail whether we are working on a small project or a multimillion £ project. It is the same standard of customer service which is completely results-oriented.”
