  • Throwback to 1945: The Cubi Family in History

    June 18, 2018

    There is a reason why Cumar Inc. established itself over the years as the leading importer and fabricator of the finest marble, granite and exotic stones in the New England region. Its history encompasses several decades and generations: when Angelo “Ivo” Cubi founded Cumar Inc. in 1992 in Everett, MA, he was carrying out a family tradition of seven generations. And it is indisputable that he brought with him a piece of Italy.

    It was late spring when a train hit the truck headed to The Cubi’s facility in San Pietro in Cariano (Italy)

    Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella and the area surrounding this small city in the heart of Po Valley is considered the marble’s temple.

In the stone world however, celebrating the month of love means paying tribute to what we like to call “heart stones,” which are predominately comprised of shades of pink and green. These “heart stones” promote healing, balance and a spiritual concept of love,

  • CUMAR now offering revolutionary Antolini’s Azerocare

    July 6, 2017

    By Stephanie O’Brien, Care & Maintenance Manager

    I am very blessed to consider Italy a second home and have traveled to many different corners of the splendid country, always amazed by, and in awe of, the beauty that surrounds me. On my most recent vacation, it was a different experience than in the past, more stone-conscious, so-to-speak. From ancient sites to classical churches to modern construction, natural stone is an integral part of the history of the country.
