With rising costs of construction and land, it is important to have a suitable Commemorative Stones to commemorate a grand opening of a building, project or event. Our commemorative stones are a timeless permanent reminder of a special occasion or opening.
In some cases commemorative stones are used to remember and honor important donors that have contributed to the event or project.
How do I order?
Our typical order process starts with an email or phone call. It is important to specify the size of stone you require, and a rough layout of the text you require. After we have received this information we will quote for the required job and draft a proof copy for your approval. After receiving the proof copy and making a deposit payment work will commence on your plaque.
The typical lead time is 3 weeks from order. However, we are able to offer an accelerated express service if you need the plaque quicker. Our staff will work overtime in order to meet your deadlines for an additional charge.
We are able to offer a fully supply and fit service, however most clients choose to install plaques themselves without any assistance. It is possible for us to create drill holes or any other fixing requirements you may have.
Where are your plaques made ?
All our stone plaques are made in our Nairobi factory using the latest British equipment. We quarry our own granite and marble from deposits around Kenya and for this reason, we are able to offer a quick turnaround time as well as a cost effective price.

- On some occasion it is important to specify the reason for the function or stone (For Example. This building was opened to commemorate the 50th anniversary of …”
