Mumbai, 06th November 2019: HAIQU, an engineered quartz surfaces brand, today unveiled the world’s largest seamless quartz slabs in Mumbai, India. Quartz is one of the hardest materials on the planet. Engineered Quartz surfaces use a scientifically calibrated mix of natural substances like quartz grains with resin to create a non-porous, super-strong material that can be developed in different colors, patterns, textures, and finishes.
With a unique studio-led approach of manufacturing, Haiqu is creating fashion-inspired collections of Quartz Surfaces and the idea of Haiqu as a fashion brand for architectural material was conceived and brought to life by its two young co-founders, Siddhant Lunawath (23) and Saumya Gattani (21). Both the founders spotted a gap in the architectural surfaces market and decided to explore the opportunity of creating a global brand that focuses on collaboration between the best in design and the finest technology.
“Quartz is a new-age product that is stronger, more hygienic, and more eco-friendly than natural stones like marble & granite. Quartz has now become the most popular choice worldwide for modern kitchens and bath spaces in both residential & commercial projects. Engineered Quartz surfaces use a scientifically calibrated mix of natural substances like quartz grains with resin to create a non-porous, super-strong material that can be developed in different colors, patterns, textures, and finishes”, said Ms. Saumya Gattani, Co-Founder, HAIQU.
While other Quartz brands create smaller slabs & tiles in basic colors, Haiqu has added design, colorful patterns, and has even matched natural Italian marble and granite to create a much-differentiated product offering.
“It will also be collaborating with a prominent designer to release a signature collection in early 2020”, further she added.
“Being non-porous, engineered quartz is the perfect choice for kitchens and wet areas as it eliminates any chance of staining or bacterial growth. Its extreme hardness makes it scratch-resistant, unlike marble & granite that is very prone to scratches, blemishes and stains, said Mr. Siddhant Lunawath, Co-founder, HAIQU.
We have two production lines with a production capacity of 5 million sqft. The total production capacity will be 7.5 million sq. ft. Out of which we are targeting 4 million for the Indian market. We will open a distribution centre in all metro cities in the first 3 months & next 6-12 months in all A category cities will be covered. We will gradually add more production lines looking to the demand”, further he added.
