Our company

On the way to 175years of experience

The history of Steenhouwerij JH Smits & Zonen BV goes back to 1848.

We originally worked and processed natural stone in the traditional, traditional way, with a lot of hand tools and muscle power. The early days of our family business consisted mainly of making sculptures and ecclesiastical art. In addition, the manufacture of gravestones, crosses and natural stone structures.

 

 The first machines were put into use around 1930. From around 1950, saw blades with industrial diamonds were introduced, which made it easier to process hard natural stone types. We currently have very modern machinery that guarantees exclusive customization of optimal quality. 

Steenhouwerij Smits strives to keep its machinery "up-to-date". Although we follow the latest developments closely, we still employ craftsmen who have mastered the old craft down to the last detail. That is why we can meet any demand in the field of natural stone. From a small, unique custom piece to floors and walls of hundreds of square meters.

Our current clientele includes many professional clients, including kitchen companies, interior builders, furniture makers, (interior) architects, designers and construction companies. Individuals can also come to us very well. Our products are used in new construction and renovation of villas, residential houses, catering and other commercial institutions.
