The Natural Stone Industry is #OpenForBusiness

Stone Federation Great Britain have launched a campaign aimed at promoting the fact that the natural stone industry is open and ready to do business with architects, main contractors, local authorities and clients.

The COVID-19 situation has proven the natural stone sector to be agile and innovative as it has sought to chart a course through unprecedented waters.

We are aware that one of the main questions from architects and main contractors is, ‘who is back in operation’.  We have compiled a list of Stone Federation members who have told us that they are #OpenForBusiness to help specifiers and clients find materials, products and services.

Several weeks ago, Stone Federation issued an open letter to the construction sector encouraging contractors to continue to engage with their suppliers and subcontractors to ensure a strong cashflow throughout the industry.  At that point in time we were keenly aware that partnership and shared endeavour had the potential to position the natural stone sector, as a part of the wider construction industry, for a strong exit from this lockdown period.

Now we are on the other side of the initial lockdown, and the construction sector is looking to find its feet in Phase 1 of the Construction Leadership Council’s ‘Roadmap to Recovery’, we are calling for this attitude of collaboration to continue.
