World Stonex, the Online Marketplace for the sale of goods and services by a diverse community of small and large businesses in the natural stone industry, continues to extend its global reach of suppliers to that industry with the addition of companies in Italy, Turkey, Palestine and Egypt.

They include Breton, a world leading, Italian-based producer and supplier of machinery and integrated production lines; and Tekmar Marble, Turkey, a world leader in the production of high-quality marble.

They join a network of allied supplier companies that include some of the largest exporters, distributors, and machinery and diamond tools suppliers in many corners of Asia, Europe and North America, according to Kunal Bagla, director for North America for World Stonex.

Breton is a worldwide technology leader in machinery and plants used in the tile and stone industry. Its extensive line of machines for producing natural stone covers various production requirements from block sawing to producing an array of finished products. It also has developed a line of high-speed machining centers with innovative numerical control machines, and a complete range or machines and integrated production lines for processing porcelain granite.

In Turkey, 22 firms have joined the World Stonex community, including Tekmar Marble, the country’s leading exporter of high-quality marble products produced by state-of-the-art equipment and a world leader in the field. Its factory, one of the largest in the world, has an annual capacity of 2-million square meters of marble.

"Today, More than two thousand buyers from 47 countries have joined our community in the last year alone, and an estimated $80 million (U.S.) worth of leads originated on," said Bagla.

The World Stonex community includes other industry leaders such as Marmo Meccanica USA, Ghines srl from Italy, Pokarna Limited from India, Nassar Investment Co. from Palestine and Quanzhou Wanlong Diamond Tools Co., Ltd. from China.

On, buyers can find thousands of granites, marbles, travertine, slates and other natural stones, monuments and artifacts, as well as machinery and diamond tools. They can browse every suppliers complete product catalog along with photos and technical specifications, use the proprietary search engine to find what they are looking for, and then send inquiries to suppliers.

"We believe that suppliers should be able to market, advertise and reach out to buyers locally and globally through advanced Internet technologies,” explained Bagla. "And they should be able to do this at an economical cost. We help suppliers receive constant exposure in front of prospects and customers by actively marketing their product catalog on our marketplace."

"Our members tell us that the leads they receive through complement their existing sales and marketing efforts. We also have service teams in the United States, China and India to make sure that World Stonex is serving customer needs as fully as possible. We work with new suppliers to get them onboard quickly and easily," he added.
