Mandarin Stone was founded by Alma Small in 1989, almost by accident... she was approached by the owner of a roofing slate company to market a large consignment of flooring slate. Twenty years later the company remains within the Small family and every member plays a key role. Set in the rolling hills of Monmouthshire, Mandarin Stone has grown considerably over the years. It has several warehouse sites in Monmouth together with nine inspirational showrooms throughout the UK, located in Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Exeter, Marlow, Monmouth, Weybridge and Wilmslow.

Over 100 different stones including Limestone, Marble, Slate, Travertine, Sandstone, Schist, Terracotta, Granite and Basalt are imported and stocked to high levels, allowing all stone to be delivered within short lead-times.
