Who we are
Specialist in the production of large-sized ceramic slabs with minimum thickness, LAMINAM is the first company in the world to have industrialised the production process, introducing the market to new porcelain stoneware applications, ranging from indoor and outdoor architecture to furniture.
Born in 2001 from an intuitive leap of engineer Franco Stefani, who designed this innovative product, patented its technology and imagined its application, LAMINAM has stood out from the onset owing to its technologically advanced production process, based on highly automated systems and latest-generation plants. This eco-compatible approach is based on three pillars: natural raw materials, sustainable technologies and recyclable products.
Laminam established itself very quickly, in pursuit of a sole mission: to produce ceramic slabs with an artistic and functional value, with two souls, which correspond to the two surfaces produced: the 1000x3000mm slabs with a thickness of 3 and 5.6 mm and the 1620x3240mm slabs with a thickness of 5.6 and 12 mm.
INNOVATION AND APPLICATIONS
A truly innovative product, like the Laminam large ceramic surfaces, often poses problems of competence in its applications, above all in the building and furnishing sector. To tackle these shortcomings, Laminam has an internal division dedicated to providing consulting for architectural design of interior spaces and building envelopes.

A RESPONSIBLE COMPANY
Supporting all Laminam research and development projects is the pillar of social responsibility: for Laminam, innovating makes sense if the results of the research are sustainable, in a world in which resources are increasingly scarce and the problem of environmental impact of production activities is becoming increasingly serious. Natural raw materials, sustainable technologies (low energy consumptions, zero pollutant emissions, minimum CO2 emissions), fully recyclable products are the three pillars on which the Laminam eco-compatible approach is founded. Laminam is a member of the Green Building Council, the international sustainable building network: this means that its production processes emit only water vapour into the atmosphere; that production waste is reused in other applications, without exploiting more resources; and the characteristics of lightness and size of its products help to limit the environmental impacts of transport, compared to similar traditional products. Today, Laminam is proud to state that it has taken huge steps to limit its own carbon footprint: with a photovoltaic roof with an estimated capacity of 1.387 Gwh, it autonomously produces over 10 percent of its energy needs from renewable sources and prevents huge amounts of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
