Fox Marble Holdings plc
(“Fox Marble” or the “Company”)
Orders and specifications achieved for premium finished marble product from leading luxury property developments in the UK and Australia
Fox Marble, the AIM listed company focused on marble quarrying and finishing in Kosova and the Balkans region, is pleased to report on orders and specifications worth approximately €300,000 from leading property developments in the UK and Australia that underscore the continued development of the Company’s customer base globally.
The prominent developments that have selected Fox Marble include:
- Audley Square in Mayfair, London being developed by the Caudwell Collection - and regarded as one of the most prestigious residential buildings in the world - has specified Fox Marble’s Illyric White and Selene Grigio marble for all of the interior common areas. Once final plans for the property are complete Fox Marble expects to receive a formal purchase order.
- An exclusive residential property located in Point Piper, Sydney, Australia, which is expected to be the most expensive house in Australia when completed, has ordered Fox Marble’s Sivec, Flora, Rosso Cait and Etruscan gold marble to be used in its construction. The materials were shipped in December 2016.
- The developers of a large residential mansion in West London, valued at £40m, have ordered Fox marble’s Flora, Grigio Argento and Sivec marble, due for shipment in the next two months with the project due for completion in the spring of 2017.
Chris Gilbert, CEO commented: “These latest orders continue to demonstrate the desirability of our premium marble products as the stone of choice in some of the most prestigious and expensive residential developments taking place around the world.
Furthermore, in line with our strategy of offering a low-capex and integrated approach to our marble production, processing and distribution globally, these developments also show that our brand is gaining reputation as a trusted supplier, capable of effective production and distribution of marble at the high standard of quality required in such projects”
The directors’ expectations for the Company’s order book which will be realised in 2017 remain broadly in line with what was announced on 13 December 2016. The Audley Square development will not be recognised in the order book until such point as a formal purchase order is received.
