Top Of The Rock: Lapitec Takes NYC

During one of the hottest weeks in July, distributors across North America convened in New York City to attend LAB Days, where Lapitec revealed their plans for the future of our favorite sintered stone material. Along with new colors and exciting brand changes to come, it gave us an opportunity to convene with our fellow distributors to learn and grow. Lapitec sintered stone is a product that was developed out of a desire to evolve the building materials industry, creating a product made of 100% natural minerals and that is 100% better than its predecessors. We can’t wait to see how they continue to grow over the coming months.
