6 Generations of natural stone quarrying have led us here. 

From Daniel Suttle through George and John Suttle, then Stephen Paine and now to Hutton Stone’s Managing Director Marcus Paine it is simply part of us.

Hutton Stone Co Ltd became a reality after Stephen and Pamela Paine moved to Farm in the Scottish Borders in 1989. Noting that there was no local stone trade to speak of in the Borders at that time they invited their second son Marcus to join them in launching the company in 1994.

Dealing initially in reclaimed stone, the Company grew steadily throughout the 1990’s and re-opened the historically important Swinton Quarry in 1999.

Since then the Company has continued to grow with much investment in modern quarrying and processing machinery, the re-opening of the Craigleith equivalent Hazeldean Quarry in 2010 and most recently the purchase of Darney Quarry.
