A short history

The quarrying, processing and installation of architectural-building stone in Istria has a tradition that spans millennia. Relying on this tradition, experience and previously acquired knowledge, in 1954 the Kamen d.d. company was founded in Pazin.

During the first decade of business operations the company managed to unite all stone processing capacities in Istria under one roof.

In its subsequent development until today the company has increased production and the product range by following advances in technology, investing in modern equipment and new manufacturing processes, and adapting the organization of operations.

During 60 years of business activity and operations the company managed to expand its business contacts at home and abroad. Kamen deals with businesses across Croatia, as well as many European and overseas countries.
