- The development of Polycor over the last 19 years has been truly remarkable. Since its inception in 1987, Polycor has grown through a series of quarry and manufacturing acquisitions and by initiating Greenfield operations. Started initially from the quarry portfolios of the Bussiere and Piertal families, the Company is now a leading North American integrated quarrier, manufacturer and wholesale distributor of granite, marble and other stones. In 1989 the Company added two quarries to its initial operations. The Company's first step in stone processing occurred when it purchased the custom cut-to-size manufacturer Granite Bussiere Inc. now Polycor Granite Bussiere Inc., located in St-Sebastien, Quebec. It further expanded its capabilities to include thick granite products such as street curbs and bridge pillars through the acquisition of Dumas et Voyer (now Polycor Granite Curbs in Rivi?re-?-Pierre, Qu?bec). Granilac was acquired in 1999 which added four exclusive granites to the portfolio including the Cambrian Black.
Polycor further extended its manufacturing capabilities to floor tiles for commercial and residential construction through the acquisition of Tuiles Grani-Decor's factory (now Polycor Tiles Inc.) in St-Sebastien, Quebec. A third manufacturing complex was added to the St-Sebastien site in 2004 by introducing a Greenfield slab production facility, Polycor Slabs Inc.
2003 marks Polycor's first major entry into the soft stone marble market through the acquisition of Georgia Marble's three quarries (Georgia Stone quarries) and the manufacturing facility (Georgia Architectural) located in Tate, Georgia, a venture originally started in 1884. These white marble deposits are confirmed to be the world's largest, with proven reserves of over 3000 years at the current rate of extraction. Georgia Marble has been used in such prestigious projects as the Lincoln Monument, the United States Capitol, the New York Stock Exchange and the Alamo Cenotaph. In 2004, the Company acquired the Colorado Yule white marble quarry in Marble, Colorado. It also started the Cascapedia marble quarry in the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec and reopened the Mississquoi Marble quarry also located in Quebec.
The Company's net sales have increased from 2,5 million
