London Universal is a California company incorporated in 1978. We are a supply source, importer and manufcaturer  of  granite and marble for architectural projects.

London Universal was the first company to introduce European agglomerate marble tile in 1978 to US department stores for their aisle walkways, offering a unique calibrated marble tile with uniform thickness for thin setting.

Macy’s flagship store in Union Square, San Francisco was the first install the new marble tile. Ten new Macy's department stores throughout Californian used the tile on their aisles. Other department store installations included Filene's of Boston (8 stores), Dillard’s Department stores (60 stores), Neiman Marcus (San Diego), Calvin Klein (Madison Ave), I.Magnin, Lazarus Stores, Rich’s, Emporium, Buffums and Ivey’s. Hotel groups with installations include the Hyatt, Marriott and Sheraton. The Stoneridge Shopping Mall (see below) in Pleasanton, CA installed 100,000 sq ft of marble tile cut to a specific size pattern.

Granite Cobblestones marketed from our web site have been an integral part of London Universal’s product range since we supplied a 50,000 sq ft driveway and courtyard entrance for an Equestrian Center in New Mexico in year 2000. This was followed by a 20,000 sq ft project for the historic Carolands Mansion, Hillsborough, CA that used our  9”x5”x5” cobblestones for their four driveway entrances (see web site photos of installation).

Streetscape Revitalization, utilizing granite cobblestones to restore that aged historic appearance, is taking place in many older US cities where the downtown areas are being redesigned as community hubs for shopping, dining and people watching, very similar to many European cities. London Universal has supplied the cobblestones and granite curbing to Folsom, CA for the redevelopment of historic Sutter Street. All part of the city’s revitalization program (see web site photos).

Reclaimed Cobblestones, originally arriving in the US on sailing ships from Europe as ballast were used for road construction at many East and West Coast seaport cities. Today they are part of London Universal’s product range. As the infrastructure of cities improves and redevelopment occurs, these “aged” cobblestones are being recycled for driveway and stately courtyard entrances.

We are able to supply to most site locations in the US either by flat bed truck or container delivery. Custom sizes are available direct from the quarry for special projects if time is available for production and shipping from overseas. Granite curbing and granite cobblestones are also available from US quarries that meet Leed specifications or municipal purchasing requirements for a local source granite. Custom sizes and surface finishes, flamed or natural split face are available.

Large projects are our specialty but we do supply projects as small as one truckload, about 700 - 1000 sq ft depending on the cobblestones size. Delivery can be as short as 2 days or 10 days depending on distance to the job site. Quarry production delivery will range from 2 to 6 weeks depending on the quantity and delivery location.

As a privately owned company we have guarded our reputation for quality, service and reliability that has proven to be an invaluable asset for 35 years. We will endeavor to maintain our reputation with your contracts. References are available from our past clients - just ask.
