BBS supply granite from many countries around the world however Portugal was one of the first countries to export to the UK in real volumes for the landscape market about 20 years ago. The volume of granite sourced from Portugal has reduced with the introduction of Chinese granite to the UK market but it remains an important part of BBS’s product offer as orders can be delivered in much shorter period of time due to quicker manufacturing and shipping arrangements. This, along with it being a beautiful, unique material makes Portuguese granite an attractive option.
