A FAMILY-RUN BUSINESS
When Jose Cortizo and his late wife, Amy, established Devon Stone in 2004, their mission statement was ‘elegance within reach’.
Their aim was to offer clients premium quality natural stone in combination with the best possible service. Those early foundations were firmly set – Devon Stone continues as a family run-business based in Topsham, Devon, with a highly experienced, knowledgeable team. And our reach has grown far and wide.
Driven by qualityWe work closely with a select number of market leading manufacturers around the world
This differentiates us from other natural stone suppliers, and ensures we offer the best quality natural stone and porcelain, fixing materials and care & maintenance products.
Expert knowledge & serviceOur technical knowledge is unparalleled.
With a combined century of stone knowledge within our team, including specification and installation, we not only understand what type of stone looks good, but also how to ensure it looks good permanently. Outstanding service is intrinsic to everything we do and it’s this focus that has enabled us to build lasting, close relationships with our global suppliers as well as our customers.
Our ethical codeNatural stone is one of the most durable construction materials and almost inert in its release of emissions – unlike carpet and laminate
Despite this, the extraction, production and transportation of stone has an undeniable impact on our planet.
You can read about how we minimise this impact in our ethical code of practice.

MEET OUR TEAM
Devon Stone founder, Jose, established the business in 2004 with his late wife, Amy. Having worked as a management consultant and project manager for Pfizer, Defra and BP Amoco, Jose joined the stone industry as a project manager for Stoneguard, working on prestigious stone installations and restoration projects in the UK.
When they founded Devon Stone, Amy and Jose’s mission was to supply their clients with the best possible quality natural stone and the widest range of finishes through selective global sourcing. While the company has grown and the breadth of services have increased, Jose has kept Devon Stone true to these values, aligning the business with industry leaders such as Beltrami, Bisazza, CaPietra, Lapicida and Peronda. Several of these partnerships stem from the early days of Devon Stone and they have endured through a shared passion for quality and innovation.
When it comes to natural stone and porcelain, Jose is passionate about outstanding design, calibre of the materials and quality of installation. He is uncompromising in these areas and strongly believes that natural stone needs to be beautiful, fit for purpose and installed and maintained in a way that will give you years of pleasure.
Jose is committed to building the current stone offering of products and services while also using his role within the wider JAM Interiors Group to ensure that the company is at the forefront of natural stone design through its bespoke and semi bespoke services.
After his career in the textiles industry took him all over the world, Matt returned to Britain to head up marketing and product development for the Silent Gliss UK market. A successful stint at the Swiss firm saw Matt build the product range, including collections with Kelly Hoppen, turning Silent Gliss into a retail-focused brand.
A period in Amsterdam followed where Matt ran Silent Gliss' operations in Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg and gained a love for continental contemporary design.
Matt’s passion for design culminated in 2006, when he returned to Devon and founded JAM Interiors with Jose, incorporating Devon Stone into the Group.
Today, Matt brings a strong design led ethos to Devon Stone and is responsible for ensuring that natural stone and porcelain sit perfectly within the context of an overall interiors scheme.
