Why we believe it can be interesting for some company from Qatar ?
Well, there are several reasons
a / Stone from that location is Brand stone. It was used for building world famous Old Bridge that once was built in1566 . became Master peace and classed among the greatest architectural works of its time in the whole world! Names of stone s from that quarry are: Tenelija and Miljevina , similar technical characteristics.
b / You will have one partner for immediate contract and purchase of stone products , products that are of proven quality, made by company that has more than 15 years experience in stone production in their production facilities in Mostar town.
c/ You have one partner for negotiation regarding possible Joint venture contract for exploitation of new quarry at site near by.
d/ You will not have intermediate company which is important regarding cost of final products
The original Old Bridge was commissioned in 1557, by Suleiman the Magnificent , (ruled 1520 to 1566), the Ottoman Empire, to replace an older wooden suspension bridge of dubious stability. Stone from our location/s was used. Construction began in 1557 and took nine years, corresponding to the period between July 19, 1566 and July 7, 1567.
In the late 16th century, town Mostar was the chief administrative city for the Ottoman Empire in the Herzegovina region. The city's symbol, the "Old Bridge" ( Stari Most) is one of the most important structures of the Ottoman era and was built by Mimar Hayrudin , a student of the famous Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan
Charged under pain of death to construct a bridge of such unprecedented dimensions, the architect Mimar Hayrudin reportedly prepared for his own funeral on the day the scaffolding was finally removed from the completed structure. Upon its completion it was the widest man-made arch in the world. Certain associated technical issues remain a mystery: how the scaffolding was erected, how the stone was transported from one bank to the other, how the scaffolding remained sound during the long building period. As a result, this bridge can be classed among the greatest architectural works of its time.
The Old Bridge stood for 427 years, until it was destroyed on 9 November 1993 during the War in Bosnia and Herzegovina . After its destruction a temporary cable bridge was erected in its place.
I sencerely hope that those information will reach the right contact in Qatar or neighbouring area who will realize the opportunity. I am looking forward to have some positive reply to this metter and will be happy to give more information.
