Tell Derbyshire Life readers about your buiness We opened our doors for business in February 2007, drawing on over 25 years experience in the stone industry, our specialist field is the fabrication of granite or quartz for kitchen worktops, although we do work with other material for individual project requirements. At our premises in Kirk Langley we house our own factory installed with quality machinery run by a team of highly skilled fabricators which enables us to produce flawless products every time. At Impala, we also employ a team of templators and fitters who provide a trustworthy, professional and friendly service to all our customers. At Impala, we are lucky enough to have a large showroom, displaying over 50 different materials for our customers to come in and view, we also are close enough to our suppliers so that our customer may book an appointment with them and view the actual slab which is then to be fabricated by ourselves for their project.
How have you managed to battle against the recession? Our company opened in 2007 not a particularly good time to start!! We have kept building our business and customer base during the years of the recession and have maintained our image of high quality workmanship throughout, and thankfully are still here to tell the tale.
How do you see the business developing in 2011? We envisage developing our business further in 2011 by the introduction of more advanced machinery into our factory enabling us to produce higher quality and specialist project requirements for our customers. Our sales team are set to forge new working relationships throughout the area, we are also lucky enough to gain new enquiries from recommendations for very satisfied customers.
What sets you apart from your competitors? We offer quality workmanship, a wide range of colour choice in all the materials we offer and are as price competitive as possible these things alone set us aside from our competitors.
Who are your customers and how do you keep them happy? Our customer base encompasses both trade and retails and we pride ourselves on delivering to a high standard and never letting our customers down.
What's the best thing about doing business in your area? We are very fortunate to be located in such a beautiful area as Ashbourne, and are extremely aware of the possibilities on hand for the development of our business through the desires of the customers who live and work here too.
