Norman Emerson Group Ltd



The Norman Emerson Group is one of the leading suppliers of rockery, cobble, decorative and paving stone in Ireland - everything from mini bags of decorative gravel and glass, to water feature stones and fountains.  The Company has put considerable thought and effort into developing this side of the business, and products are sourced from at least 15 different countries, and from as far away as the Americas, India, Turkey and China.  Sales and Marketing Director, Kenny Crooks is credited with much of the success for developing the Natural Stone portfolio.


Over the last seven years the Company has worked closely with architects, garden designers, landscapers and clients in providing stone solutions and helping to create 'beautiful gardens'.  As the stone portfolio has grown in size there has been a considerable "add-on" aspect, with the addition of other specialist landscaping items such as fountains, lanterns and garden furniture, decorative pots and paving products. 

"There has been a tremendous interest shown in the use of natural products when it comes to landscaping work, and indeed building work in general over the last couple of years," explains Kenny Crooks. This is reflected in the number of high profile contracts that feature Natural Stone products.

The Norman Emerson Group's Natural Stone products are being specified in prestigious projects all over Ireland, on everything from domestic landscaping contracts to large commercial schemes. 


Recent examples range from landscaping works at the five star Lyrath estate and Spa in Kilkenny, to a newly created roof top garden at the Four Seasons Hotel in Dublin.  Group products were also utilised on the new G Hotel in Galway. "The G Hotel was very high profile because of the involvement of the well known hat designer philip Treacy in its design," says Kenny.

As a member of the Association of Landscape Contractors of Ireland, the Natural Stone Centre is well known in the sector.  The Norman Emerson Group is also a nominated preferred supplier of the Gardening Inside Out Group. "In terms of marketing and promotion we have worked hard at endorsing our range of products to our target audience," explains Kenny.  "We have built up good working relationships with contractors, landscapers, architects, and garden centres throughout Ireland."

With the Natural Stone range well established in the local marketplace the Company is currently working in partnership with various multinational companies throughout Britain to launch the Natural Stone product range to the English marketplace. By substantially increasing its geographical catchment area, the Norman Emerson Group is confident of further growing the business.

"As well as extending our areas of operation, we are constantly adding to our portfolio," continues Kenny.  "We have added over 50 new products to our Stone range this year, including a large section devoted to paving solutions."
