Quartz surfaces begin with the beauty of natural quartz, and are enhanced to provide greater durability and color consistency. The result is surfacing of singular elegance and luxuriousness. Its deep, rich colors and lustrous sheen makes it the surfacing material of choice for upscale applications. Plus its quality construction offers durability against bending and pressing impact.
Elegance And Durability. Naturally.
ESI is pleased to offer HanStone Quartz. HanStone is manufactured by Hyundai Surfaces, the leading manufacturer of natural quartz surfaces with the most advanced, nature-friendly manufacturing plant in North America. The HanStone Quartz surfacing product line is ideally suited for countertops, vanities, bar tops, reception areas, conference rooms, and other surfacing throughout residential and commercial interiors. We combine one of nature’s hardest materials, natural quartz, with high-quality polymer resin and pigment to produce a durable yet luxurious stone surfacing. All of these qualities have made HanStone Quartz surfacing a premier choice for builders throughout the world.
HanStone Manufacturing Process
At Hyundai Surfaces, we know manufacturing a luxury surfacing product requires using a high-end process; therefore, we have invested heavily in our North American facility’s technology to ensure appearances and colors range from those that look like natural products to ones specially designed according to the requirements of architects and interior designers.
North American Facility
In keeping with Hyundai Surfaces’ ongoing commitment to environmentally friendly production, the 215,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility in Canada utilizes the most advanced, environmentally responsible manufacturing process. Located in London, Ontario, the facility solidifies Hyundai’s presence in North America as one of the leading producers of fine quartz surfacing – via its HanStone Quartz surfacing product line.
At Hyundai Surfaces, our team follows rigorous quality assurance procedures throughout the entire research, development, and manufacturing process. Our process begins with a rigorous inspection of all incoming raw materials – color, grade, and composition. These are blended at a ratio of up to 93% natural quartz aggregates with pigments and polymer resins. We have quality assurance checks throughout the process, and we perform a final inspection of surfacing slabs before they leave the plant.
The result – the delivery of an unequaled quality product consistent in color, texture, and size.

Made to Perfection

Our unique Breton™ manufacturing technology allows the combination of outstanding physical and mechanical characteristics with excellent aesthetic appeal. We source various types, sizes, and colors of quartz crystals from around the world, which provide the desired hue, feel and design, and capture the spirit and essence of natural colors. Special aesthetics are achieved when the surfacing product is made with the addition of materials such as colored glass, mirrors, mother-of-pearl, or small pieces of semi-precious stones such as lapis lazuli, and amethyst.
