The granite factory of AKFA Stone provides jobs for 232 people and produces about 20 thousand sq. m. of finished products per month.

Granite is a widespread and popular rock, which is actively used today in construction and architecture. This is due to the high performance characteristics of granite, primarily strength. In addition, granite is a beautiful, "luxurious" stone with a rich color palette and goes well with other types of building materials. The active use of granite in construction is due not only to the strength of the material, but also to its ease of processing. Thanks to this, granite is given a varied shape and surface texture.

The company considers a careful attitude of production towards nature as one of its priorities, and therefore makes production as environmentally friendly as possible. In this way, in the bowels of the Nurata Mountains, almost two thousand cubic meters of natural stone are mined per month. This allows the enterprise to take leading positions in the extraction and processing of granite in the republic. The extracted natural stone corresponds to the first class of building materials, which confirms its high quality and the absence of radiation in it.

More than $ 5 million was invested in the construction of this plant, which took about 5-6 months. It also included the cost of purchasing technological equipment. The plant has over 60 units of equipment for cutting granite blocks, water treatment, polishing and edge processing. The plant provided jobs for 179 people, and its production capacity was about 20 thousand square meters. m of finished products per month. Factory processing methods have several advantages.

The company manufactures, at the request of the client, both solid slabs (granite blanks), and cuts them according to the customer's specifications, which significantly saves time on large-scale projects and avoids low-quality handicraft work. Processing stone with the WaterJet also saves time compared to more traditional methods, produces granite shine and reduces waste. And the waste that still remains is sent to the production of pressed bricks from granite chips with high strength, which is also sold by AKFA. Granite Industries Technology does not stand still. The construction of the so-called Stone Bazaar is already underway - a platform where the company's high-quality products will be sold to the public. In the future, the company plans to increase the number of jobs and production capacity.
