50 years of
We have the know-how you need.
C. Fernando R. DAPAZ & Cia Ltda. is a mining company specialized in the extraction and processing of ornamental stones such as marble and granite. Established in 1989 by the sons of Mr. Marcolino da Paz, co-founder of
Dapaz Granites in 1966, with the intention of carrying on tradition and representing the family's name in the stone business.
A pioneer in the extraction and commercialization of many stones, such as the Imperial Coffee Granite, DAPAZ currently has a new line of own materials, a modern processing plant and operations in several international markets.
In addition to promoting marbles and granites from Brazil, DAPAZ also sponsors, through mining, social and economic development in the regions where it operates.
OUR HISTORY IN A NUTSHELL
Dapaz Granites is founded in Braganca Paulista/SP by Marcolino da Paz and his brother. His kids would have their first job here and would eventually found Dapaz Marbles.
C. Fernando R. da Paz & Cia Ltda is born in the city of Caldas/MG to start working on a new and unknown granite: the Imperial Coffee.
The first block of Imperial Coffee is sold! In the beginning the blocks came from bolders. It was only years later that we were able to work directly on the rock.
CFRP opens its first block deposit in Caldas, MG to help with the increasing export of the Imperial Coffee.
Imperial Coffee is in an all time high, so we starts the construction of a second block deposit in Andradas/MG, a neighbor city of Caldas.
CFRP's Factory construction starts in Andradas/MG. Now we can sell blocks and slabs!
Our research team discovers several marble reserves 1,500 miles north of our Factory.
Next to our 30th anniversary, we decided to honor our mentor, Marcolino da Paz by re-branding our company as "Dapaz Marbles" (since Dapaz Granites still exists).
We acquired a few more quarries in the North of Brazil and launched Belvedere and San Pellegrino.
We have been investing in new machineries for our factory and our new quarries as well as new team members!
