1944 - Avola Stone opens its activity as a firm specializing in the working of the local natural stone. The workroom (workshop) was founded by Michele Avola, the first leader of the firm. Subsequently its management was passed down to Giorgio, the founder’s son, and to Armando Minauda, at the present moment general manager of the firm Avola Stone
1982/87 – “Avola Stone” brand appears at the very beginning of the 80s.
Over a period of almost 10 years, the company activity specializes in the production of road-indentation, pavement edges, roads and pavings.
1988 - From 1988 onwards Avola Stone expands its activity - thanks to the plenty of its experience in working of the natural stone - towards the architectural field and the public building trade. It also specialises in production of facades, facings, objects conceived and designed as urban furnishing and sculptural works for private use.
1989/98 – Thanks to ongoing research and new technical solutions – e.g. featuring both water-jet cutting and the utilization of in-numerical-control milling cutters – Avola Stone is an increasing success in public building trade.
Thus, what we define as “basic products” are now flanked by production of decorative and designed objects, such as furnishing items for the bathroom, fireplaces, balustrades and so on.
/05 - Avola Stone becomes a sector leader in production and working of the natural Sicilian stone. Nowadays Avola Stone takes part in the most important fairs, as far as this sector is concerned, and it has expanded its sphere of activity outside local borders, by exporting Sicilian stone to five continents. The company workshops maintain a section, conceived for craft and artistic works.

The strength of our stones and their naturalness allow an unlimited use and can have different destinations, guaranteeing compactness and challenging wear and the passing of time.
