2012Lasa secures the largest order in the company's history

After months of negotiations, the contracts for the largest construction project since Lasa Marmo was founded were signed in New York in the United States. For the new subway station planned by the Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava, theWTC Port Authority Trans-Hudson PATH-Station, which is located at Ground Zero below the former twin towers of the World Trade Center, the Lasa Marble Works is supplying the entire finishing material for the cladding of floor and wall surfaces. The major order represents a challenge for the company. With an increase in the number of employees in the factory to 90, shift work also on weekends, the acquisition and commissioning of a total of four state-of-the-art CNC milling machines and the increase in production competence for complicated large 3D parts, the "Lasa" is mastering the enormous order volume, nevertheless. On the 2nd of May 2012, the initial delivery for New York's third-largest subway junction will take place. For more than four years, the Lasa Marble Works has been producing floor and wall panels, hollow fillet bases, massive stair treads, wall covers and other special shaped parts from LASA BIANCO NUVOLATO®. A total of 40,000 square metres and 70,000 different parts weighing around 3,000 tonnes will be loaded into containers and shipped to New York. All floor and wall panels are laid out in advance in the company's own workshops ("dry layout" process) and carefully inspected and approved by the US customers.
