ABOUT US

Introduction

A F Jones provides a complete service from concept and design services, through manufacture and full installation. We are dynamic, knowledgeable and we support our clients to realise the true potential of stone in, and on, their buildings.

With over 160 years of continuous operation and investment, we employ a sizable in-house team and manufacturing capability, delivering large and complex projects, alongside the multitude of smaller and bespoke works.

We draw upon our wealth of deep-seated stone knowledge & heritage skills, but we also invest and capture the power of leading-edge cutting technology to ensure we offer efficiency, accuracy, and overall value to our clients.

Sectors & Project Types
Our main sectors include:
  • Ensures building condition is planned and considered periodically.
  • Issues can be identified & monitored / assessed over time (i.e. not just snap judgements on a single inspection basis).
  • Priorities can be assessed, including relative to other estate investments, and budgets assigned / planned with a longer term perspective.

Each of these sectors involves specific skills & experience.

We also provide a variety of Consultancy services to develop your project from inception onwards.

Where preferred, we are happy to provide a supply-only service for your own fixers to install.

What we offer
We combine traditional skills with significant investment in modern cutting / CNC technology – this gives:
  • Best / most competitive price
  • Accuracy (vital for jointed finish & speed of fit)
  • Top quality hand-finishing of all components
  • We are a stones-throw from London and situated central to the Thames Valley corridor.
  • Proximity to London & surrounds gives us an advantage in the delivery phase.
We fully & directly employ our site-fixing masonry teams. This enables us to guarantee the highest quality work and most flexible service, taken from detailing to finished product. Also, since we deliver all our services in house, it also ensures the most competitive rates as well.

All of our Masons are fully trained to NVQ 2 or NVQ 3 standards (alongside other annual safety training), and so we have a depth of knowledge across the board of staff delivering your project.
