UK Enterprise Awards 2021

290 | UK Enterprise Awards 2021 Best Family-Run Countertop Fabrication & Installation Business - Scotland: The Beauty of Marble Ltd Not only is it an essential feature of any kitchen, but a beautifully polished and natural stone worktop can create the wow factor in your home! Kristine Al Jndi tells us more about the family business and its unique selling point that really differentiates it from competitors. Having started in the trade at the tender age of 15, Syrian-born Matt Al Jndi learned his stonemasonry skills from his two uncles’ workshops and factories, so it was only natural that Matt himself entered the industry when he came of age, setting up The Beauty of Marble Ltd. The Scottish-based family-run firm specialises in fabricating and installing granite and quartz worktops to a high standard and with a seamless finish. With more than 40 years combined experience, the company can handcraft to a customer’s specifications, no matter what the budget, colour, material, style or design, and guarantee a luxury finish each and every time. “Matt’s knowledge and talent with natural stone is incredible,” mentions wife and business partner, Kristine. “Lots of clients choose to use us because of the passion he displays.” Being a family operation, Kristine works behind the scenes at The Beauty of Marble, keeping the social media side of things running, promoting brand awareness, updating the company website and, all importantly, invoicing clients. Located in Kilwinning, North Ayrshire, the company covers the whole of Scotland, including Glasgow and Edinburgh, and serves predominantly homeowners who are either replacing their whole kitchen or upgrading their worktops. On visiting the worktop showroom customers will be taken through the different material and colour options available to find the right choice, at the right price, for them. “At The Beauty of Marble Limited we don’t just know about granite, marble and quartz - we LOVE natural stone, and this is why we invest in the highest quality materials, machinery and polishing kits,” Kristine enthuses. “We fabricate, template and install, as well as understand, the importance of adding the perfect finishing touch to your kitchen and we will put you and your needs first at all times – we provide a personal approach from the very first contact right through to the installation process, ensuring that you are fully satisfied with the new focal-point of your kitchen.” This dedication to the cause, commitment to providing high quality products, and strong customer focus is hard to beat and it’s one of the reasons that Kristine and the team believe they stand head and shoulders above competitors. But there is one very clear USP that the firm possesses and this is, of course, the seamless finish! “A seamless finish is important for a number of reasons,” Kristine elaborates. “The first is visual, no one wants to see the joins in their kitchen worktop and at The Beauty of Marble we believe you shouldn’t have to! The second is security, silicone is a flexible material, over time any movement in your kitchen has the likelihood to disturb your beautiful worktop and leave you with a disaster on your hands. Our seamless worktop will be glued together and the pieces become fused as one, no amount of movement will affect your worktop.” As a family run business, Kristine and Matt recognise the importance of treating everyone who works for the firm as a member of the family. “Our staff are incredibly important to the running of our business. A new worktop has many moving parts from the choice of stone right down to the final fit our staff work together as a team.” Having recently been awarded the prestigious accolade of Best Family-Run Countertop Fabrication & Installation Business – Scotland it’s not hard to see why The Beauty of Marble Ltd is a one-stop-shop for a beautiful, bespoke creation that will set any kitchen aside from the rest!
