»The marble not yet carved can hold the form
of every thought the greatest artist has.«
Michelangelo, Painter & Sculpturer
Diespeker & Co is a specialist supplier of natural stone and man-made materials for flooring, tiles, cladding, worktops and treads. The company was founded by Italian entrepreneur Luigi Oderico in Hamburg in 1881.
Luigi expanded the business to London, where Diespeker was one of the first companies to offer terrazzo and mosaic to the UK market, alongside marble, granite and slate. Over the years, the business has grown into a refined operation, with skilled craftsmen, the latest in Italian machinery and consummate experience in cutting, processing and polishing.
»It’s always a pleasure to work with an inspirational group of people.«
John Krause, CEO Diespeker & Co.
