We have history.

When five individual companies merged to form Franken-Schotter in 1970 they knew that only a powerful, quality-oriented company will be successful in the market. So they decided to open new quarries and to built new production sites.

Short ways, modern technology, powerful logistics and last but not least outstanding quality has made Franken-Schotter a leading and competent supplier of natural stone products.
