Salvatore Caruso bought four of the popular Jet 625 bridge saws from Donatoni Macchine for his own fabricating business, now he is representing Donatoni in the UK (Stand B25)
The spindle design of the five-axes all-in-one Thibaut T952 means it saws like a saw, machines like a machining centre and polishes like a polisher. Thibaut are represented by On Point Engineering in the UK (Stands A1, B1 and C1)
2. Choose seamless and anti-microbial surfaces from leading international suppliers
The Musa collection from Lapitec (stand C60) offers a new take on veining, which runs the whole way through each slab. Lapitec is a full-body sintered stone with full mineral structure and no chemicals or resin binders.
Wharf Solid Surfaces (stand I59) is one of the UK’s leading fabricators of acrylic solid-surface. Non-porous, seamless, hygienic and non-staining without the need for sealing or treating.

5. Gain invaluable knowledge
There are over 50 seminars hosted on the Hard Surfaces and Natural Stone Show seminar theatres. These include ‘Workshop Insights’ each day and a ‘Fabricator Masterclass’ that provides an insider’s guide to equipment selection, cutting sequences, adhesives, substrates, and design detailing for stress-free worktop installations.
Andres Hernandez from Grespania (Stand G60) will present ‘From Concept to Coverlam’ on Wednesday 7th June from 14:20. This explores the evolution of new porcelain work designs from initial inspiration through scanning and digital decoration to continuous pressing and firing.
6. Discover 100 innovative and low-carbon surfaces at the curated MaterialDistrict ‘Sustainability meets design’ feature
7. Visit the Worktop Fabricators Federation on stand I50 to find out more about how they can protect and promote your business
Visiting the show is easy too. ExCeL is now even more accessible thanks to the opening of the Elizabeth Line rail link that puts central London just a 12-minute ride away, and if you’re driving there’s ample parking under the venue itself.
