Our Story

Established 1993

Trajan Stone have over 27 years’ experience sourcing high quality natural stone from around the world and providing first class service to clients throughout the UK and Europe. It was founded in 1993 by Richard Harding, who had honed his customer focused ethic in the high-pressure service environment of international ships chandlery. He established the business when he became the first person to import Vratza in to the UK for two large, high-profile, commercial developments in London.

Some years later, he was joined in the family business by daughter Jo, who shares his passion for natural stone. Jo was keen to use her artistic talent and flair for design, having started her career in investment banking, where she gained her strong work ethic and experience in highly personalised customer service, dealing with high end clients.

Today, Trajan operates across the UK and Europe from offices in Pall Mall, London and Bristol and supplies a wide range of clients including Architects, Designers, Landscape Architects, Hoteliers, Builders, and Property Developers.
