- Do you Own a Quarry?
No, we don’t have a quarry because owning a quarry will not serve our objective of catering to demands of more than one variety of granite exports to our customers worldwide. We do have agreements with quarries however and based on them we practically get the best portion of the quarry area allotted to us by granting an advance to the quarry owner. We are literally the owners of this particular portion of the granite stone quarry and all the production of this area belongs to us.
- Do you have a Manufacturing Plant?
Yes, we have a factory which has a very good production capacity and some of the latest Italian machines for cutting. Our production plant has evolved into a high-tech production facility complete with new-age technology for cutting and polishing, We have a team of experienced granite manufacturers looking after the processing, dressing and inspecting of our granite products. When these granite slabs are polished and finished to perfection, their beauty is truly stunning.
We have master granite manufacturers which craft these natural stones and the secret to our success as granite suppliers is our expertise in sourcing the right materials at the right prices and processing them with the latest Italian machines. That way we can fulfill our vision as granite exporters to extend the best quality finished products to all of our customers.
- What is your delivery time?
We hold stock of containers of all popular varieties of natural stones for the convenience of our buyers worldwide. This enables us to ship the containers very quickly.
- Who does your quality control in the quarry / warehouse?
Kanha Granites firmly believes that there can be no substitute for good quality especially among granite suppliers in the international market. We have our own quality control inspectors trained by us who thoroughly understand our quality control policies regarding granite manufacturing. These policies are also implemented in the various quarries where our purchase managers decide to buy from. This enables us to keep a complete control over the natural stones marked and transported to our factories. As a result we do not allow any third party handling of our wholesale granite.
In a similar fashion, we have our quality inspectors allocated to the factory with the explicit role of monitoring the whole process starting from the cutting of the granite blocks to the manufacturing of the granite slabs in order to ensure international standards through out.
- Why should we buy from you?
We firmly believe that you should buy from us because we see no reasons why you should be deprived of such a good deal.
We offer you good deals in terms of pricing, in quality, in purchase (in terms of convenience) with immediate shipping and last but not the least in terms of after sales customer support.
At Kanha Granites we believe in giving the best to our buyers because we know that they deserve nothing but the best.
- Why is one material more expensive than another?
There are numerous factors that contribute to the cost of each different type of natural stone, including the quality, supply and demand, and even the value of the US dollar. First quality materials offer the finest processing and the most aesthetically appealing selections and as such there is a surcharge over more commercial grade granite products.
The size and mechanization of a natural stone’s quarry are other factors contributing to its cost. For instance, a small quarry will only have a limited quantity of first quality blocks available, which can raise the cost of the wholesale granite.
In addition, some granite marble quarries are located in places where the climate only allows them to operate part of the year, thus reducing their output and increasing cost.
Also, some pricier materials contain semi-precious stones which have a higher market value in other industries.
Moreover, a type of granite slab may be more costly because it requires more skill and careful attention during the processing and fabrication process, increasing the cost of the finished product.
Finally, the distance a shipment of marble and granite has to travel to the port before being loaded on a freight liner can also contribute additional cost.
