("Fox Marble" or the "Company")

New order of processed marble confirmed and increased rate of production

 

Fox Marble, the AIM listed company focused on marble quarrying and processing in Kosovo and the Balkans region is pleased to announce that it has signed a new contract to supply 20,000 sq metres of cut and polished paving tiles for installation in the town square for the Municipality of Poduyeva in Kosovo.

 

This contract has been entered into with the contractors charged with developing and completing the town square which will be paved with material exclusively supplied by Fox Marble.

 

Fox Marble will be processing blocks of a range of marble from its own quarries for this project and supplying this material from its factory in Kosovo over the course of 2020/2021. The total value of the contract is in excess of €700,000.

 

The factory in Pristine has seen an increase in activity in June 2020 and July 2020. The rate of production in the tile cutting area in July 2020 increased by 100% compared to May 2020, with an equivalent number of working days on the machine.  This improvement has occurred prior to the commissioning of the two new CNC tile-cutting machines (RNS: 20 July 2020) which have now been delivered to the factory and are being installed.

 

Chris Gilbert, CEO, commented "This contract to supply paving tiles to a municipality is the second such large contract Fox Marble has won this year.  Our marble comes from our quarries in Kosovo and North Macedonia and we look forward to reopening our quarries as soon as the lockdown provisions ease.  We are proud of our workforce who have contributed so fully to improving the rate of production in our factory allowing us to fulfil these substantial contracts within our existing operating setup and look forward to updating the market as we continue to win new business"
