The founder & CEO - Umesh Punia, a qualified Civil Engineer from MIT, Pune, brings a unique perspective to the natural stone industry. Punia believes that like a Hermes bag or a Rolex watch, marble is a statement, it should be viewed from the same sophisticated lenses as any other premium luxury product.
Truly speaking, Punia changed the way the marble business was being done in UAE, he says that “ when I started in 1995, marble was kept in open dusty yards like construction or masonry stones” for him, the biggest way GLAZE changed the marble trade of UAE, by conceptualizing it from a totally different perspective.
Punia says that in the late 90s when he first saw the way marble was displayed and showcased in some of the finest stone galleries in Italy, he was inspired and realized that marble is no less than an investment, like a Gemstone in a Jewellery shop or designer product in a super luxury store, Punia adds further that People don’t buy marble as a basic necessity, people invest in marble for their homes or offices, for their future generations to marvel upon.
