Leiths acquires Fyfe Glenrock

Leiths 

Leiths have acquired the business of Fyfe Glenrock, a supplier and processor of high quality natural stone products, based at Oldmeldrum.

 

Fyfe Glenrock can trace their history back to 1846, when the then John Fyfe Ltd established its business at Kenmay.

 

Since that time, the famous silver-grey granite has adorned many prestigious buildings throughout Aberdeen, including Marischal College. The same granite was also used in the construction of the Thames Embankment, the Waldorf Hotel in London and

many other notable buildings throughout the UK and the world. Our own reception area at our Head Office in Cove is floored with Kenmay granite, and Fyfe Glenrock cut and polished the Bluehills granite inset in our Boardroom table!!

 

With the supply of Kenmay silver granite now exhausted, Fyfe Glenrock imports many different natural stones from around the world, including China, India, Portugal, Brazil and Scandinavia. These are cut and polished at Oldmeldrum, into a wide range of

architectural components as well as monuments and memorials, kitchen and bathroom surfaces, street and garden furniture etc. One of their more recent contracts was the supply of walling and flooring to the Scottish Parliament Buildings at Holyrood, Edinburgh, where the contract value was in excess of £3.5 million.

 

We welcome the Fyfe Glenrock Team into the Leiths Group, and look forward to working with them to expand the business and explore new markets.
