Fox Marble supported a project to move an important British military memorial to a prominent position in central Pristina, Kosovo.
The memorial, dedicated to the 14 British and Commonwealth service personnel who died while serving as members of the NATO Kosovo Force between 1999 and 2007, was originally sited in the British army camp in Pristina known as Slim Lines and, subsequently, at the KFOR HQ.
Fox Marble was approached in the summer by the British Ambassador to Kosovo, Ruairi O'Connell with the plan to move the memorial to a more prominent location.
Fox Marble said it was pleased to support the project by providing stone extracted from its quarries at Syrigane in northern Kosovo and Malesheve in central Kosovo, cut and processed at its factory just outside Pristina, to build a new structure to display the memorial stone.
It said the structure was believed to be the first major memorial in Kosovo's capital built from local stone comprising Illirico Bianco and Breccia Paradisea marble. The memorial was re-dedicated in a public ceremony attended by the President and Prime Minister of Kosovo, representatives of the British, Canadian and Irish armed forces, the Kosovo Security Force and members of the diplomatic community on 12 Nov.
