THE KEY STONE
LIKE THE NAME OF MOHAMMED ABDULLAH SHAIKH,
THE COMPANY JABAL AL TOOR HAS BEEN BUILT ON
THE SOLID ROCK OF MARBLE INNOVATION.
For Mohammed Abdullah Shaikh, the story of success came in an unexpected form. Born into a humble farmer family in India, Mohammed Abdullah Shaikh never gave up seeking the best life for him and his family. His colossal dreams and an insatiable attitude marked his entry into the demanding marble industry and there was no turning back.
Moving to Italy in 1990, Mohammed Abdullah Shaikh was struck by the wonders of natural stone in the marble quarries of Carrara. Eventually, he established Jabal Al Toor in Sharjah in 2008, an offshoot of many marble businesess that he nurtures globally. Headquartered in Carrara, Italy, the company’s global presence extends to Spain, India, China, Hong Kong and United Arab Emirates.
OUR WORK IS A SIGN OF MASTERFUL
CRAFTSMANSHIP THAT IS AS TIMELESS AS THE ROCK
FORMATION, THAT COULD BE THE HALLMARK OF A
LUXURY RESIDENCE OR AN ACCENT PILLAR IN THE
PAVILION ON AN OPULENT ESTATE.
Retrieved from the marble quarries of Carrara, the stone embarks on a journey of transformation that challenges the course of nature.
Transformation begins when water jet cuts through the slabs of marble with an industrial precision. Where the heat of traditional cutting is dulled by the cool temperatures of the water, thus making very precise cuts and keeping the whole process environmentally safe. Our machinery brings forth extraordinary wall inlays, splendid book match slabs and contemporary murals from what was once, just a rock in the quarry.
