PAVESTONE is born within a corporate group, Grupo DFG, which is the result of its founder’s passion and genius, David Fernández Grande
David Fernández Grande is a point of reference for the granite industry and the business world in general; a man who was able to create a sound and sustainable project over time by combining risk, timeliness and know-how.
He started in the business world in the wood industry, following the example of his father. However, in 1970 he decided to give up that business to take up the challenge of transport in order to supply granite blocks and obtain mining rights for a quarry. This change in his career was definitely a wise decision; one of the many he made during his productive career.
Over time, thanks to his great dedication, David Fernández Grande exported Galician granite to Italy, Japan and Taiwan and, once the original company grew, he managed to develop and expand other companies as well as open new quarries out of Galicia and Spain.
Among the milestones in his career, he wisely built a private export port in the Ría de Vigo for granite blocks, in which he really believed, so he silenced many opposing views and bravely took the risk.
David Fernández Grande was responsible for a real revolution in the Galician granite industry in much of the world and his business style lives on the spirit of the business group he established.
