The level of craftsmanship employed at 'Ilam Stone' ensures that each cast stone product manufactured has an authentic appearance and the manufacturing processes utilised create a product with the weathering characteristics, durability and structural integrity of natural stone.
We pride ourselves on our ability to deal with all types of Clientele, from those requiring a few components (to complete an extension to an existing property) to those wishing to incorporate many different products on a large scale new build.
In 1998, 'Ilam Stone' began manufacturing high quality Cast Stone Fire Surrounds, from a small factory in Derby, for 'Kedleston Fireplace and Heating Centre' these being for a range for Private to volume House Builders.
The switch to exterior Cast Stone products came as a result of a large number of requests from customers who found it difficult to source a 'quality product' from their existing suppliers.
The demand for exterior Cast Stone dressings became so great that the small site in Derby proved to be inadequate, we therefore re-located, in January 2001, to our current site on Meadow Lane Industrial Estate in Alfreton Derbyshire.
This increased Production and Storage space has enabled us to undertake large projects. Although, our current customer list contains some of the Country's leading house builders and Developers, a large percentage of the Cast Stone components we produce are purpose made to Customer requirements.
The ability to produce CAD component drawings for customer approval adds substance to our in house quality system. Using the 'AutoCAD' system enables close liaison with the Architect, structural engineer and other manufactures whose products interface with ours. Sourced from naturally occurring high-grade limestone and sandstone aggregates together with cement, pigments and waterproofing agents. 'Ilam Stone' Architectural Cast Masonry is manufactured to BS 1217:1997 specification for 'Semi-Dry' products.
