Until July 5th, Laminam exhibits in Madrid with an exhibition created by the Spanish interior designer Cristina Amigo
After Russia and China, Laminam is starting up its third foreign company in Japan as a joint venture with Roma Tile Co. Ltd.
Laminam will supply 2,300 sq.m of ceramic panels treated with Hydrotect® technology as the external cladding of the Hotel Nodo, currently under construction in Santiago de Chile.
Franco Stefani has now also sold Laminam. CEO Alberto Selmi will increase his stake and continue to lead the company. The deal is expected to close during the summer.
Laminam’s revenues reached 110 million euros in 2018 (+30% on 2017). Sales of large size ceramic panels were strong both on the exports markets and in Italy (+20%). Russia and China are showing very good growth trends.
As part of its focus on China, Laminam has signed a new joint venture agreement with Fhr Resources and won major orders in Beijing.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Monday 27 March, the day before the start of Batimat. The plant has a production capacity of 1 million sq.m/year of porcelain panels in a 1000x3000 mm size and thicknesses of 3 and 5 mm.
The group led by Franco Stefani has ended 2016 with a consolidated turnover of 440 million euros (up 18% following 15% growth in 2015).
The new facility is devoted entirely to the production of 1620x3240 mm ceramic panels ideal for use in architecture and furnishing.
Due to their perfect flatness, extremely low weight and excellent physical and mechanical properties, Laminam largesize ceramic panels are widely used in architecture and interior design.
The operation will enable Laminam to establish a direct presence in Russia and ensure greater proximity to end customers for more effective and rapid distribution.
Laminam and Platinum have chosen the feeding systems designed by CMF Technology for their new GEA presses.
