After successfully introducing fine italian tile to the North American market, Claudio Corra recognized an increased demand for natural stone tile. In 1990, Margranite was established: an innovative natural stone tile production facility. Specializing in the production of Canadian-quarried granite tiles, the facility grew to become Western Canada’s only natural stone slab producer. Pulling from the reputation of C&S Tile, Margranite also started importing natural stone slabs from all over the world. Thus, Margranite quickly anchored itself as a leading provider of natural stone products to the construction industry in Western Canada and the USA.
Today, Margranite’s 15,000 square foot Slab Gallery in Burnaby is a gateway to more than 300 different globally-sourced natural stone slabs. Our enormous selection includes granite, marble, limestone, onyx, quartzite, travertine, slate, soapstone, engineered stone and porcelain slabs.
Our facility continues to provide refinishing services and can refinish your stone into honed, satin, leathered, polished or sandblasted finishes. Our Cut-to-Size Division handles custom architectural stone projects of any size.
While Claudio Corra remains active in the business, his daughter Sara Corra moves the company forward as Chief Executive Officer. She shares the same passion as her father for the beauty of natural stone and continues the relentless global search for new and exciting stone materials to share with the North American market.
Our Slab Gallery Team has a over 70 years of experience combined in the stone and countertop industry and will help you navigate to find the perfect stone for your design needs.
