Decades of expertise
It was 1977 when Bernard Clifford and his business partner started landscaping and building with Kanmantoo Bluestone. Six years later, they purchased the quarry. But after 40 years in the business, Bernard thought perhaps it was time he took a step back.
When we purchased the Kanmantoo Bluestone quarry in 2015, we couldn’t let almost 4 decades of experience and expertise in the quarrying, hand selecting, hand cutting and building with South Australian bluestone just disappear. We wanted to ensure we were able to offer Hanson customers not just beautiful bluestone, but also what we are quite sure is the very best bluestone expertise in the country.
Today, Bernard continues to work with us at Kanmantoo Bluestone as a consultant. He continues to work with the stone he loves, to personally supervise the crew of local employees he has trained over the years, and to pass on his expertise.
