Offer 4: We are a manufacturer of Cultured Marble (Man made marble) products located in  USA. We may be able to supply your needs but I would like to offer some information, some suggestions and also ask a few questions of our own. 
Thickness you requested being 2cm and 3cm.Cultured marble is 4 times stronger and more impact resistant than natural stone. Because of this, cultured marble can be thiner and lighter but still be twice as strong as natural marble twice its thickness. This being the case, cultured marble when being used for vertical (wall) applications is many times made in 1cm thickness to help reduce weight and costs.
1- 1.2x.75cm panel in 1cm thickness cultued marble would be approx. 35 pounds
1- 1.2x.75cm panel in 2cm thickness cultured marble would be approx 70 pounds

   This makes for lower shipping costs (more fit into a container), easier handling and installation with less breakage.
    The standard thickness of cultured marble is 3/8"(1 cm) and 3/4" (2cm)

With this in mind, would 1 cm and or 2 cm product fit your needs?
3 cm in not available in our industry.

Do you have a  Blue color in mind, we are pretty good at color matching if you send us a sample of a color you like. That is another advantage of Cultured Marble over Natural in that we can make an almost infinite number of colors and are able to reproduce them for good color consistancy.
    We can also supply some color sample pieces to choose from if desired. We have many different blue color and veining styles to choose from. These can be made available to you to make final choice.


Quantity? Time?
  We need to know how much product you would need and over what time period we would have to complete your order in order to give you an accurate price quote.
What due dates or time restrictions would there be?

Question #4
Sizes. You mentioned 1.2 x .75 size panels, saying "Size for now". We would need to know all sizes you would need for any given order. Cultured marble is made in open molds in a casting process.This way we can be sure that a sufficient number of molds of the appropriate size can be made available in order to insure our ability to manufacture the desired products in a timely manner.

Question #5
Do you need all at once or could we ship partial loads over a period of time? If your order is going to be more than one container, would it be ok to ship each one as the product is made ready or would you prefer the product all come at one time?
I hope this answers some of your questions, and we look forward to being of service to you and your company.
