Cambria Brittanicca belongs to Cambria’s Woodstone Collection, a range of quartz stones that evokes the beauty of natural materials. Not only that you can create majestic designs but with sheets of 3350x1660mm, most seams can also be avoided. Additionally, you can choose from thicknesses in 12mm, 20mm and 30mm suiting applications in for worktops and cladding.
Cambria is tougher than marble or granite, making it more durable and is less likely to stain, chip or scratch. Because of its non-porous nature, this quartz stone does not absorb liquids, moisture and food leftovers. Similarly, it helps in avoiding the potential growth of bacteria which makes it ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, laboratories and healthcare facilities.
Cambria is a family-run business that started in the 90’s in Minnesota, USA using the very same creamery facilities which the Company built in 1943, during the second World War.
Stan Davis, who started Cambria has always been a technology aficionado. By 1950’s the Company’s technology was drastically improved. During the late 60’s the business seeks routes for expansion. By the 70’s the Company changes, providing isolated protein products based on technological advances.
During the 80’s Cambria purchases facilities in South Dakota which will later become the number 1 mozzarella cheese processing plant in America. By the 90’s the Business closes their creamery operation to focus on their cheese products which gives the place to the birth of its quartz manufacturing facilities. During the 2000’s the family expands Cambria quartz opening additional facilities in 3 locations. By 2010’s Cambria doubles its manufacturing capacity, adding 408.000 square feet and two new production lines to the Minnesota production plant.
In 2016 Cambria International is created expanding global operations acquiring distribution in the UK among other countries.
