    Schroders London Wall quarry inspection

    April 15th, 2016 in Factory Visits, Quarry Visit

    This week we took a trip the incredible quarry of Grigio Perla . With orders being placed imminently for the exciting Schroders London Wall project we thought it good to take a quick trip out to see the current extraction and discuss the project in more detail. The quarry (working since 1897) and factory have got to be in one of the most unique settings with views across Lago d’iseo The factory building is in typical 1950’s style and the quarrying now inside the mountain. So nothing really upsets these unusually tranquil surroundings.
