  • "It is with pleasure that we confirm our satisfaction with the quality of stone supplied by Shankar Trades World Pty Ltd for our recently completed project of conservation of the floor of St Mary's Cathedral, Sydney. Shankar Trades World P/L supplied approximately 2000 square metres of New Imperial Red Granite all of which was quarried and processed in India in strict accordance with the requirements of the project supply contract specification. All granite floor tiles supplied for the project were within permissible dimensional tolerances and the finishes and appearance of the granite floor tiles consistently matched the approved control samples for the project. I would not hesitate in recommending Shankar Trades World P/L on the basis of their commitment to quality control and the delivery of a quality product."
