emp01Manufacturing Plant
Our manufacturing plant is located in a prime area within the municipality of Serra, one of the most industrialized cities of the greater Vitória metropolitan area. Vitoria is the capital of Espirito Santo, one of the states of southeastern Brazil where 78% of Brazilian stone blocks and granite slabs are produced.

Espirito Santo was strategically chosen because it possesses the largest source of the country’s marble and granite and makes the shipping of materials and the acquisition of quality manpower easier.

PBA Stones is strategically located on BR 101 , one of Brazil’s main roadways. The location of our manufacturing plant gives us quick access to the stone quarries and to the Port of Vitoria.
