Rocca was founded over a decade ago by Angelo Hernandez, the latest-generation stone craftsman to come from a long family line of traditional stone-working specialists. From a proud heritage developed in his native Spain, Angelo understood better than most the challenges presented from working with natural materials formed in pre-history like granite, marble and quartz; the ever-present danger of hidden flaws deep within the stone that leaves the product prone to failure after installation, the irregular composition of the stone slab that renders it unsuitable for domestic use, not to mention the sheer logistical difficulty in handling and working with a particularly hard and heavy material such as granite, marble and quartz.
Angelo was appalled at the lack of skills and specialist knowledge that were available within the Scottish natural stone marketplace and noted the poor judgement on raw-material sourcing, countless middle-men resulting in low value-for-money, clumsy production skills and inept installation.
Together with a handful of passionate like-minded specialists and a committed customer-services’ back-up team, Angelo re-established his long-standing working partnerships with the major production quarries in Spain, Italy, India, China and Brazil, and using his vastly experienced judgement and eye for detail, he set about personally selecting only the finest granite, marble and quartz raw materials for import.
Now in 2017, Rocc has grown out of all proportion to its humble origins. In the large work-area factory in Glasgow, Angelo personally directs production and ensures that only when the finished product is perfect and manufactured to his own exacting standards, will he authorise the engraving of the famous Rocca maker’s mark which signifies perfection in stone.
As we approach the mid-way point of the second decade in the 21st Century, Rocca continues to thrive on its enviable and fiercely-protected reputation as the premier provider of exceptional quality granite, marble and quartz products. With a sales’ and distribution network that easily services the whole of Scotland, in particular the major conurbations of Edinburgh, Stirling, Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen and Dumfries in addition of course to their west of Scotland heartland, Rocca delivers exceptional quality and tremendous value for money right across the country.
