About Us

Short description:
I am selling fireplaces since 1996; first 1 year for the great manufacturer HARK and after 1 year we wanted to make our own business and we opened our own showroom here in Rostock at the Baltic Sea.
Since that time we worked together with fireplace manufacturers from Germany and Italy and we started to modify surrounds from italian fireplaces to german inserts, what made them cheaper and what wasn't so complicated to sell here in Germany due to German restrictions.
In 1999 we made our first contact with spanish manufacturers of fireplace surrounds. We visited them and explained what we need in Germany. After a lot of problems with their products (wrong dimensions, bad packaging, misunderstandings because of the translators) we decided to go to Spain and build up a company with fireplace surrounds.
In March 2001 we left Germany and our company Mármoles J.K. was founded (mármoles means marble) and since June 2001 we ordered our surrounds from a little fabrique in Olula del Rio in Almeria. The owners were 2 young men and they produced after a short while as we told them to produce.
Since 2006 I am the sales director of this company and we sell fireplace surrounds to wholesalers and dealers in the countries with German and English language.
Because the crises in 2008 was very difficult for us, we had to decide to sell our products also directly to the private purchasers.
Close to these products we sell also fireplace inserts of important manufacturers for wood, gas and bioethanol burning.
We look for best quality and service and give the same to our customers.
We produce your fireplace surround you want to have. If you don't find YOUR surround inside our shop, please ask for custom made products or send us a photo of the fireplace you want to have.
