Company founder Hermann Ritter began his career in a lithography quarry with the ‘Solnhofer Schichten’ in his birthplace of Mörnsheim. Through numerous positions he worked his way up to become an authorized representative for one of the German stone companies before setting up his own business in 1985.

Basic training from working in the quarry (Jura area / Mörnsheim) in all sectors, which led to qualifications from quarry worker to draughtsman to authorized signatory and facade consultant or expert (publicly certified expert from 1987) – covering all hierarchies, all construction stages and all construction eras from solid buildings to ventilated facades.


  • Experience in the creation and further development of the ventilated façade
  • Author of the booklets "60 years of natural stone façades" and "Denkmalerfahrungen"
  • References on buildings in Hong Kong, England, Netherlands
  • Visits to quarries in South Africa, Brazil, China, USA, Namibia, Egypt


Natural stone offers infinite value and status through its formation over millions of years and its unique character, color, texture and durability.

Inclusions and layers of stone tell stories that instill respect; natural stone represents creation and transience like no other building material.

Great respect and the ultimate feel for stone are required when it comes to choosing the right stone for your project. Specialist knowledge and decades of experience, which are often only passed on internally, are in demand and priceless. Even if design and sales already have an idea, they cannot be left alone here.

Which stone, from which quarry, is suitable for realizing the architect’s design. A deep knowledge that the client can trust. Transparency and partnership relieve the burden on those responsible in advance and ensure the desired effectiveness, which is the basis for the added value of the buildings.
