The natural stone industry is #OpenForBusiness, says Stone Federation

Stone Federation member Natural Stone Specialist is #OpenForBusiness.

Stone Federation Great Britain is running a campaign this week (to 12 June) aimed at promoting the fact that the natural stone industry is open and ready to do business with architects, main contractors, local authorities and clients.

The Covid-19 pandemic has shown the natural stone sector is agile and innovative, as it has sought to chart a course through these unprecedented waters.

Aware that one of the main questions from architects and main contractors is ‘who is back in operation’, Stone Federation has compiled a list of its members who have told it they are #OpenForBusiness. This will help specifiers and clients find materials, products and services.

Several weeks ago, Stone Federation issued an open letter to the construction sector encouraging contractors to continue to engage with their suppliers and subcontractors in order to avoid cashflow problems in the construction industry.

It was keenly aware that partnership and shared endeavour had the potential to position the natural stone sector, as a part of the wider construction industry, in a strong position during the exit from lockdown.

With lockdown coming to an end and construction looking to find its feet in Phase 1 of the Construction Leadership Council’s ‘Roadmap to Recovery’, the Federation is again calling for this attitude of collaboration.
