Filstone acquires granite quarry in Alpalhão (Nisa)
Filstone acquired a new granite quarry located in Alpalhão (Nisa, Portalegre), which had been inactive for about two years. The investment will make it possible to diversify the products extracted and marketed, as well as create jobs and boost local dynamism in a village with a tradition in the natural stone sector.
Filstone created the brand ‘Filstone SPI Alpalhão’ to name the granite extracted from the Alpalhão quarry, continuing the work previously developed in that location, where the granite was already nicknamed ‘SPI’.
The company currently has two quarries: one in Casal Farto (Fátima), where it is headquartered and where limestone is extracted, the other in Alpalhão (Nisa), from which granite will be extracted.
