Fox Marble quarry operations are built around extensive marble reserves. The four quarries in operation are Cervenillë, Syriganë and Malishevë in Kosovo and Prilep in Macedonia. Together these produce nine varieties of stone (excluding the Bianco Glaciale) found in Collections.
During 2015 and 2016 the focus was on opening new benches in all of the quarries in order to achieve more consistent and increasingly high quality output. Fox Marble quarry operations are overseen by the company’s strategic quarry partner, Studio Pandolfi in Carrara, Italy.
Quarries can be environmentally intrusive. Wherever it operates, Fox Marble is committed to working to preserve the environment and operating in the most sustainable and efficient way possible. Fox Marble works closely with local environment ministries and agencies and ensures that all its staff are trained to implement its environmentally sensitive quarry plans.
The Rahovec area in Central Kosovo contains four separate quarries sites over which Fox Marble holds rights: Antenna, Cervenilla, Drini and Verrezat, which together cover over 256 hectares.
Opened in November 12, this was the first of the Fox Marble quarries. The quarry is being exploited across three separate locations (Cervenillë A, B & C) from which red (Rosso Cait), red tinged grey (Flora) light and darker grey (Grigio Argento) marble is being produced in significant quantities. The polished slabs from this quarry have sold well. Amongst the most noteworthy sales has been to St George PLC (Berkeley Homes) for the prestigious Thames riverside Chelsea Creek development. This sale was made via our partner company, Pisani PLC.
