What’s the history of your company?
CDK Stone opened in 1982 as one of Australia’s largest suppliers of raw material blocks for monumental processing. From that beginning the company began to expand and diversify in response to changing market demand.
Today our focus is natural stone for building as well as stone working tools and equipment.
Where do you distribute?
We have showrooms in Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast, Perth and Auckland and distribute throughout Australia and New Zealand.
CDK Stone has been used from the smallest residential applications to the largest commercial projects, including Parliament House.
Describe your customers?
Our customers are as varied as the applications our stone is used for.
We deal directly with stonemasons, architects and interior designers. We also work with homeowners looking for a new natural stone kitchen bench to others who feature vast amounts of natural stone throughout their home.
What sets CDK apart?
We travel extensively each year, visiting the world’s finest stone producing quarries and discovering new sources of truly unique natural stone.
With nearly 30 years in the business, we have developed strong and close relationships, giving us access to only the best stone, which allows us to bring an unmatched selection of stone to Australia.
Who should we speak to when specifying?
Everyone at CDK Stone in all of our showrooms are more than qualified to help you in every possible way should you wish to deal with us directly.
What are your client’s priorities at the moment?
Our clients, whether they are homeowners, architects, designers or builders appreciate the beauty, strength, warmth and richness that only natural stone can provide.
They are looking for something timeless and elegant that will never go out of style. And something that will last and be easy to maintain.
What is good design to you?
Good design to us is where natural stone is used in a manner that either highlights the stone’s wonderful qualities, or uses the stone to enhance other elements of the design.
Good design is also where consideration is given to ensure the correct materials are selected to suit the application.
What does the future hold?
Although natural stone possesses a timeless quality and centuries of traditional types of use, more recently there has been a remarkable range of new finishes, textures and materials available that transform even the plainest stone into something stunning and original.
