The advanced stoneworking capabilities of the Santucci Group are not only evidenced at its plant in Carrara, Italy, but also in completed architectural projects throughout the world. Working with some of the top names in architecture and design, the company has become renowned for unique cut-to-size projects in a broad range of materials.
But although the company's achievements can be found worldwide, its beginnings were humble, as it was established as a small marble shop by Armando Santucci in 1950. Fabrizio Santucci, Armando's son and the president of the firm, joined the company in 1984, and he began traveling around the world, buying blocks and selling finished materials.
Growth was steady over the next decade, and the company broke into separate divisions in 1995. Santucci Graniti srl is the slab department; Santucci Armando srl is the cut-to-size division; and Santucci US Corp. in Miami following closely all clients across U.S., the last new branch is Santucci Granitos do Brasil located in Vitoria ES.
There are a total of 40 employees in the group, including Fabrizio's brothers, Leonardo, who heads the cut-to-size operation; and Francesco, who is in charge of slab production. The company's factory is spread across 32,500 square feet, with an additional 130,000 square feet of stockyard.
With the current machinery in place, a total of 15,000 square feet of material is shipped each day, including slabs and cut-to-size work.
