Successful ERP Implementation Case Study

About PAZ Stone

Challenges They Faced

The concept of Paz Stone was born as a result of 25 years of experience in the Commercial Construction Industry. In 2005 a decision was taken to launch a new brand Paz Stone to cater for the Domestic Construction Industry.

PazStone is now a leading supplier, manufacturer and installer of natural and reconstituted (engineered) stone. They offer builders, architects, interior designers, kitchen manufacturers and the private home builder a comprehensive selection of high-quality stone building products at competitive prices.
