CORALDOM is a family business, fabricator and quarry owner of Dominican coral stone & Marbles, which was founded in 2008. During our short presence in the market our stone has been greatly accepted. We have had the opportunity to export to various countries including the United States, Venezuela, Panama, Thailand & some Caribbean islands. Our facility is located in the Boca Chica region. This region is well known to be rich in coral deposits. Our facility is conveniently located 10 minutes from Las Americas international Airport and 5 minutes from the Caucedo Port.
Our plant can produce about 50,000 m2 a month, that enables us to be competitive so that we can respond to our customers demands with regards to quantity, quality and time. Our Italian machinery is considered top of the line around the world. We use Benedetti machinery for the quarries and Barsanti machinery inside our plant to produce the material.
