How it all began

Tino Kent partnered with Henry Leonard started up Marble and Granite Inspirations Limited in November 2006.

Both Tino and Henry had worked with Anthony Ives (Masonry) Limited, the well respected local Funeral Directors and Stonemasons, for a number of years. On Anthony Ives’ retirement Tino and Henry decided to go into business together and Marble and Granite Inspirations Limited came into being.

Tino and Henry both believed in excellence of production and always prided themselves on the quality of manufacture and installation of their natural stone Worktops in Kitchens and Bathrooms as well as Fireplaces and Floors.

Henry moved on to set up his own company in 2014, but Tino remained determined to move the company forward with a professional and approachable service which emphasised his desire for an excellent high quality product at an affordable price.

Sadly, Tino passed away suddenly in October 2016 and is greatly missed. However, Marble and Granite Inspirations Limited continues to strive for the high quality service which Tino valued so highly and under it’s new management of Alan Birch and Ian Nutting this emphasis on an excellent high quality service at an affordable price continues to grow and develop.
