More than 40 years working to be one step ahead

I believe in Work, Commitment and Quality.

Luís de Sousa
Founder

Working is about willpower, energy and effort. Taking actual and physical steps to getting things done and make happen.

Commitment is about loyalty to our people:
the workers and their families,
the suppliers and their responsibilities,
the clients and their expectations.

Quality means getting involved. Striving for value along the whole process of fabrication and always aiming for satisfaction.
This is my formula. This is Dimpomar.

The new generation

“My way is working hard. My blessing is loving the job.”

I often think: what a great generation to have been born in. Stone has always existed, and the beauty of this natural resource soon gave life to a busy business of cutting, finishing and edging. The current initials, like IoT, I4.0, BIM and so on, are real challenges and, at Dimpomar we are enthusiastic about this generation’s endless possibilities on the stone lifestyle we have been shaping nature into. Fully committed to Dimpomar and our people - always trying to be one step ahead.
