Pioneering sustainable craftsmanship “Preserving the old - creating new things”
Founded in 1967, the stonemason company Glöckner Natursteine specialises in the processing of natural stones, in particular the restoration of sandstone facades. Under the guiding principle “Preserving the old - creating new things”, the Saarland craft business is geared to the requirements of sustainability. Their focus is on reuse and use of regional stones instead of Asian imports. This strengthens regional value chains and avoids long transport routes.
