Trans-European Stone Ltd have announced that their partnership with quarry Pierre Bleue Belge has won the 21st Golden Bridge Award for Best Small and Medium Sized Enterprise. Celebrating the export success of the world famous Belgian blue limestone (Bluestone) to the UK.
The award acknowledges the consistent growth Pierre Bleue Belges exports to the UK, currently they export 28% of turnover with 5% going to the UK. The judges were particularly impressed with the ethically secure supply chain, in compliance with the Modern Slavery Act and environmental factors as the quarry is less than 200 miles from London.
Belgian Blue limestone has been quarried at Soignies since 1668, with Julie Abraham now the fifth generation Managing Director from the Abraham family, who took over the mantel from her father two years ago. The company which has been ISO9001 accredited for several years prides itself on consistently delivering a top-quality product, with unrivalled technical qualities and versatility. In 2008 Pierre Bleue Belge opened a new quarry in Tillier des prés securing reserves for future generations who will benefit from the continued availability of this versatile stone.
Belgian Blue limestone (Bluestone) is available in a multitude of finishes and is ideal for table tops, benches and all hard landscaping applications.
