Cambria Skye brings the coastal views from the United Kingdom right into your home. The product aims to bring nature into your space by offering a soothing combination of sky blue colours. It also brings life into your design by providing a vivid combination of blue, green and grey with white veins.
As importantly to its calming effect, the product evokes the movement of water landscapes of the coats of Skye. It also offers incredible performance features such as resistance to high temperatures and extreme cold.
If this was not enough, Cambria Langdon is also resistant to stains and is anti-bacterial. It makes it perfect for bathrooms, kitchens and other areas which are usually humid and wet such as sauna and spa.
In addition to having a marble feel, this product gives you long-lasting surfaces that won’t fade over time. Cambria Skye is tougher than granite and marble. It is also more durable and less likely to stain, chip or scratch that natural stone. Similarly, Cambria Skye is non-porous and hygienic as a surface.
Also, because of its compact nature, this quartz stone does not absorb liquids, moisture and food leftovers avoiding the potential growth of bacteria which makes it ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, laboratories and healthcare facilities alike.
Cambria Quartz history:
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.
