Company history

Founded in 1968The site when B&V Masonry started in 1968

B&V Masonry Ltd was founded in 1968 when Bernard Vanhinsbergh set up the company in Basingstoke. We’ve been going from strength to strength ever since, adopting the trading name stoneCIRCLE on the way.

The company is now run by Jeff & Steve, Bernie’s sons, both of whom are passionate about working with stone and the technology involved in producing the best quality products from it.

Showroom in Newbury

We opened our Newbury Showroom in 2009 allowing us the space to incorporate a kitchen showroom and a slab gallery for comfortable viewing of the different stones available.

New Factory Extension

In 2013 we gained planning permission to extend the factory with a brand new 20,000ft² building equipped with the latest CNC equipped cutting machines, a water jet cutter, solar panels, rain water collection and grey water recycling. This opened in early 2015.
