About us

Crafting value for future generations

Brachot is a leading specialist in natural stone and blended materials, offering landscape and surface materials round the world. Through time, Brachot has increasingly been taking every step in the process firmly into its own hands. Driven by its vertical integration strategy, Brachot developed from a wholesaler in natural stone slabs to an international player with quarries, production sites and distribution centres in various countries. Brachot’s own range is complemented by blocks, slabs, tiles and projects from renowned international quarries and suppliers, carefully sourced by an in-house team of experts. Moreover, an equally high level of expertise is put into practice for the development and distribution of blended materials such as composite, terrazzo and ceramics.

VERTICAL INTEGRATION AS A STRATEGY FOR SUCCESS 

Consistently deploying its vertical integration strategy has clearly paid off for Brachot. Today, the group has no less than 20 quarries, which are located in France, Portugal, South Africa, Ireland and Norway. Processing natural stone and developing blended materials is done at Brachot’s 9 production sites, which are active in India, Ireland, South Africa, France and Belgium. Finally, the unequalled range in landscape and surface materials are brought to the market via 16 distribution centres in Europe and beyond.

 

CRAFTING VALUE FOR MORE THAN 120 YEARS

Not only our materials stand the test of time. Our own company does so, too. For over 120 years, we have been crafting value with our landscape and surface materials while growing slowly but steadily. Through it all, we have always remained a family business, with the 4th generation now leading the way. It all started in 1901, when Victor Hermant started his business, which initially focused on sawing and selling marble slabs. In the following decades, wholesaling was increasingly complemented with production activities, while more materials were added to the range. At the end of the century, a head office and production plant were opened in Deinze, as well as its first two sites outside of Belgium. Brachot’s expansion accelerated at the beginning of the 21st century, through investments in quarries and natural stone producers. Moreover, its distribution network kept growing, with more and more distribution centres around the world, as well as showrooms, different production units and online wholesaling activities.

 

MEET OUR BRACHOT FAMILY MEMBERS 

Brachot consists of various brands and divisions, which all have their own specialisation – from quarrying certain types of natural stone, to sawing and processing materials in a specific manner or distributing blocks, slabs, tiles and projects under a marketed brand. As we are at heart still a family business, we like to call them our Brachot Family Members. And although they are spread across the world, they all share the same dedication to genuine, tried-and-true and durable value.
