From excavation to final laying, including processing, marketing and project design: expertise and know-how that encompass the entire supply chain. With 200 years of experience and state-of-the-art processing techniques, Marbo is a network of companies specialized in the quarrying and processing of Botticino Classico Marble, and with strong ties to the local area.
It all begins in Botticino, a town of 10,000 inhabitants in the heart of the marble region east of Brescia. It is here that the one and only Botticino Classico Marble is mined, famous for its ochre-veined white-ivory color and excellent compactness and durability that make it extremely versatile. These quarries are the home of Botticino marble, and from here it is transformed into one of the most highly-prized decorative stones in the world, stone capable of making an architectural design unique and being transformed into fine detailing. From the La Scala Opera House in Milan, to New York’s Grand Central Terminal or the Roman ruins in the old section of Brescia and modern luxury hotels throughout the world, Botticino Classico has always been an unmistakable sign of quality and sophistication.
Three well-established companies, each with its own, yet complementary, area of specialization to create a harmonious and complete approach to the production of Botticino Classico Marble and other ornamental stones.
Thanks to the synergy between three leading local companies—the Cooperativa Operai Cavatori del Botticino, the Cooperativa Valverde and Ghirardi Stone Contractors—Marbo is one of the beacons of manufacturing excellence in the Lombardy region. The three companies controlling nearly 50% of Botticino Classico Marble resources guarantee their professional know-how and experience throughout the entire supply chain, from the quarrying of the stone through exportation of the finished product across the globe.
Through the skill and professionalism of its members, this network adds its contribution to enhancing the marble products using state-of-the-art production processes, backed by engineering departments specialized in developing advanced approaches for using this authentically natural stone in projects.
Marbo is, therefore, the ideal, reliable partner in the creation of ambitious projects on an international scale.
