As part of the Finstone Group’s worldwide operations, Minaco (Pty) Ltd is a leading resource company for the processing and supply of natural stone materials to the building, construction and monumental industries in South Africa.
With direct access to Finstone’s extensive worldwide resources of natural stone, Minaco’s three divisions encompass all aspects of the industry from the sawing of rough blocks and the wholesale and retail distribution of granite, marble, sandstone and quartz slabs to various surface finishes, cut-to-size, installation and the production of finished products.
Formed in 1996 as a result of the consolidation of two of South Africa’s leading natural stone contracting companies, Marble Lime and Marble Pentelic, Minaco Divisione Contratti brings together a professional team of craftsmen with a wealth of knowledge in the design and application of natural stone products and exceptional contracting skills to complete the stonework on any given project.
This division provides a service which is ideally suited to turnkey operations and offers cost-saving design input from concept to completion, advice on the suitability and availability of local and imported natural stone materials as well as guidance on installation, detailing and surface finishes to suit all project requirements.
Since its establishment in 1994, Minaco Divisione Lastre has been applying the latest technology to achieve top international quality standards and become a leading producer of high-quality natural stone slabs in a variety of colours.
Minaco Divisione Lastre has twelve gang-saws, one 42-wire multi-saw, one single-diamond wire saw and one double-diamond wire saw in operation, yielding a production capacity of 180 000m² per year. Slabs are cut in 20mm, 25mm or 30mm thickness and with both a polishing and flaming line and a waterjet and resin machine, are further processed in polished, honed, flamed, brushed or water-jet surface finishes to name but a few.
As the largest manufacturer of thick granite slabs in Southern Africa, Minaco Divisione Spessori provides both the local and export markets with 50mm to 500mm slabs from its factory in Marikana, which boasts a ten-disc-and-wire saw facility capable of producing more than 145 000m² per year.
This division is renowned for its cut-to-size monumental components, which are produced according to required specifications, shapes and sizes. In addition to monumental components, Minaco Divisione Spessori also supplies sawn slabs, polished slabs, large paving slabs, strips and cobbles for both domestic and commercial use.
Minaco’s depth of experience, specialised skills, ongoing technological advancements, professional staff and high standard of workmanship have placed it well to the fore of the industry.
