A Little Bit About Us: 1840 - 2020
International Granites LLC is part of Eurasian Enterprises, a family-owned Anglo-Indian company that can go back some seven generations to the early 1840s with its roots originating in Kingston Upon Hull in the United Kingdom, and not simply as monumental stonemasons and master stonemasons, but also of professional sculptors creating many public as well as personal works of art.
A significant change to the family business began in the 1950s when the company began importing marble direct from Italy. During the 1960s it imported from several other countries including India, Angola, Poland & Portugal however it was the purchase of the large Hull and London, U.K. granite & marble wholesaler Walton Goody & Cripps (1933) Ltd (WGC) in 1968 that altered the business's focus. During the 1970s it had also become very acquainted with its premium Indian granite supplier and had discussed many different ideas of how to increase production, which type of products to manufacture, which markets to aim for, anything and everything was considered and ambitious expansion plans were made.
In 1981 it was decided to go ahead and promote Indian granite internationally through well-known trade fairs, notably in Germany and Italy, with the newly-formed Anglo-Indian company Eurasian Enterprises initially based in Madras, now known as Chennai. This was a resounding success, high quality products made in India at very competitive prices, customers were delighted, some markets welcomed the competition, some markets would remain firmly closed for many years protected by their governments.
In 1993/4 we launched our first website, one of the first 1,000 on the WWW, and today we have several and they're evolving, as customers' expectations do, into informative and usable tools whereby specifiers, tradespeople and the public can learn about our materials and products. We don't publish prices on our sites quite simply because everyone's enquiry is unique.
This website is designed to specifically promote the many different granites processed in both China and India. We have our own staff and offices there, independent material inspectors are available plus direct contact via smartphones with those in daily touch with quarries and factories. The WWW has been wonderful for our industry, it has tightened supply lines, opened up communications with direct and affordable means of contact and helped us take to market new and exciting materials and products.
You are most welcome to visit the factory or arrange a quarry tour at most times of the year however it is recommended to avoid the Indian monsoon season, June to September, in case of flooding.
