Inevitably there is a difference in the quality of cheap imports and locally manufactured goods. For most companies which specialise in mass importation price is almost always the major determining factor. We are strong believers in local manufactured fire surrounds for a variety of reasons explained below: 1. British manufactured Marble Fireplaces will be packaged in the UK and this minimises the risk of damage as there is much less handling involved. 2. Bespoke alterations are possible, and customers can effectively have anything they require made to order. 3. Fireplaces can be available in a range of colours rather than only one shade of marble. This gives our customer greater flexibility and ensures you don’t have to compromise. 4. With investment in automation, it is possible to manufacture Marble Fireplaces in the UK and compeat with imports
