Natural stones from Polycor's historic North American quarries are literally the stones that built the communities we know today. You can find Polycor stone just about everywhere — from national landmarks to hometown monuments, to backyards where we gather with friends and family. This is because our quarries are everywhere, too: from Indiana to Georgia, from New England to Oklahoma. And our stone is so prolific because of the high quality of the iconic granite, limestone, and marbles in our portfolio.

Unlike many other natural stone manufacturers, we own the supply chain from quarry to delivery. This means the shortest lead times, better quality control, and lasting results. And our products are built to last, so that the natural stone you install now will be enjoyed by generations to come.

Our historic quarries have built a reputation as the building stone for the most iconic projects for over a century. Those projects were installed by the greatest craftsman in the world, and Polycor would like to grow that story with this generation of great Hardscapes and Masonry contractors.​
