Digby Stone was established by Darren and Claire Digby in 2008 and over the years the business has grown to become one of the leading suppliers of quality Natural Stone and Porcelain paving products nationally.
Having worked in the paving industry for over 25 years Darren identified a real need to do break from the norm and provide a service that really supported the merchant industry and we believe this is the foundation of our DNA and our strapline of “dare to be different”.
In 2013 and 2015 Reiss and Chelsea (Darren and Claire’s children) also joined the family business to assist in the growth plans.
Whilst the business's origins were in natural stone (Sandstone, Limestone, Slate and Granite) we have taken our extensive knowledge and desire for excellence in paving into the supply of Porcelain products too. Through Darren’s insight into the industry and its suppliers Digby Stone has worked tirelessly to ensure that our packaging and the quality of our selected products is first class. Our pride in our products paves the way in our product development and research, meaning you can trust Digby Stone to supply only the highest quality products available. We believe ethical sourcing is an important responsibility within our industry which is why we personally visit and only source our products from hand selected partners in India, China, Brazil and Italy.
Sandstone, Limestone, Slate and Granite, our natural stone collection features a range of colours, finishes, sizes and styles as well as decorative counterparts for those elegant finishing touches such as Granite Spheres, Sandstone Aged Cobbles and Slate Wall Cladding.
Our Porcelain collection continues to expand year on year as the demand for this new innovative product grows. With its stain and scratch resistant properties combined with designs to echo that of natural stone along with bolder more elegant patterns it really does have something for every garden.
In 2018 Digby Stone celebrated its 10 anniversary as well as winning two national awards for “Best Landscaping brand” and “Supplier of the Year” against competition from across the building industry.
In January 2021, Digby Stone were acquired by Global Stone. With a similar ethos as Digby Stone, Global Stone started in 2003 as a supplier of natural stone paving. Since then, it has grown to be one of the leading suppliers of natural stone and porcelain to the Independent Builders Merchant sector in the UK. In 2018 it was acquired by Shree Agencies, its key natural stone supplier which has further strengthened its position in the marketplace as a manufacturer and supplier, ensuring an increased capability and commitment to supply. Since its inception Global Stone’s name has been synonymous with innovation, quality and excellent customer service.
Going forward we want to continue and maintain our service as a multi award-winning supplier, we endeavour to provide our customers with the finest quality of products, ensuring we meet the high standards that our customers have come to expect. Sourced from around the globe, each product is hand-picked with the aim to provide you with something different, accommodating for diverse garden designs.
