It all started with a dream for owner Laurent Bellavance who, back in 1986, founded what was then Marble Unlimited, along with two other partners. At that time, the company only manufactured synthetic marble for bathroom applications.
Laurent became the sole owner of Marble Unlimited and began offering new products to keep his competitive edge.
Marble Unlimited completed its first expansion and was now offering Belcore solid surfaces for kitchen & bathroom countertops, custom shower bases and shower walls.
With the demand for natural stone growing, and Laurent’s dedication to providing his professional clients with the most current products, Urban Quarry took the leap into the natural stone fabrication business.
Urban Quarry began carrying and fabricating Cambria Quartz Surfaces and is now Cambria’s exclusive fabricator throughout Eastern Ontario and 1 of 12 Lexus partners in North America.
The transition to natural stone products precipitated a second expansion and renovation in 2009 that tripled the size of the fabrication shop (14,700 sqft), which runs 2 shifts daily, and includes fully computerized stone cutting equipment, and additional offices.
A new era begins as Marble Unlimited rebrands itself to Urban Quarry and offers a stunning workplace for designers and visitors alike with its award-winning showroom.
Urban Quarry is honored by Cambria as the 11th partner to be inducted into the Lexus partnership program. Lexus Partners are highly evolved businesses that meet criteria related to sales success, exceptional quality, high-level customer service and a commitment to marketing.
The family business continues to thrive under the leadership of Laurent, his wife Monique (Accounting), three children, Serge (Sale & Marketing Manager), Luc (Operations Manager), and Mireille (Admin Manager) and a skilled team of over 60 employees
Urban Quarry celebrates 30 wonderful years partnering with Ottawa’s professional trades
and relocates to 2717 Stevenage Drive, building its largest and most inspirational showroom
and Cambria Quartz fabrication plant to date.
