The Lasa Marmo Ltd.
In November 2008, the Lechner Marmor JSC took over the todays Lasa Marmo Ltd. domiciled in Lasa (Laas), South Tyrol. The consolidation of the two corporations was an important milestone in the recent history of Lasa Marble. Thereby, it is for the first, that the historic mining places and quarries in the Lasa Valley (Laaser Tal) – namely the White Water Quarry, Quarry Tarnell, Quarry Nessel Cliff and the Jenn Cliff Quarries – are united under one roof.
Today’s 'Laaser Marmorindustrie Ltd.' (abbreviated 'Lasa Marmo Ltd.') is a corporation with single shareholder and the direction and coordination on part of Lechner Mamor JSC, Lasa / Laas, VAT no. + registration no. commercial register BZ 01463720217, nominal capital € 15.000.000, liable.
Georg J. Lechner found the Lechner Marmor JSC in 1992 with the aid of various partners and investors around the Swiss media entrepreneur Bernhard Burgener. This happened with the aim to reactivate the tradition of the Lechner marble quarries in the Lasa Valley (Laaser Tal), as well as to shortly establish oneself as a competent provider in the marble processing and within the respective natural stone sector with a specialization on sales and extraction of the white Lasa Marble. On November 18, 2008, the Lechner Marmor JSC took over the Lasa Marmo JSC by 100 percent.

Lasa Marmo - our factory
The factory premises of Lasa Marmo Ltd. (this is also where the Lechner Marmor JSC is located) comprises an area of about 55’000 square meter. It is located at the southern rim of the marble village Lasa (Laas) in the Venosta Valley (Laaser Tal), South Tyrol, Italy. Since it was constructed, the factory is the last part of the extraction chain of the high-quality white marble from the marble quarries in the Lasa Valley (Laaser Tal). The last part of the Marble Railway of Lasa (Laas) – a transportation structure, which was built in 1930 and is still operational today – reaches directly into the factory. With the Inclined Plane Railway (Brake Incline) at the middle part of the railway construction, it doubtlessly builds a special technical artefact of cultural value, with which the white natural stone is transported in an environmentally friendly way down from the quarries to the valley – and that still after more than 80 years of its construction.
