Was first established in Castellarano in 1997 as a small company offering tile manufacturing and third-firing services.
The founders’ idea was that of putting a press at the service of its customers for trial tests and for sizes and structures that were difficult to produce. They aimed to provide customers with pressed and dried material, backed by their specific expertise in doing so. It was a successful idea and customers who exploited these services started to ask for fired material too, in the form of small production batches.
Following these new needs, at the beginning of the year 2000, Labo-Cer moved to Spezzano di Fiorano near Modena, where it installed 4 Sacmi presses and an industrial firing kiln.
Focusing on a continuously-developing market and one that demanded a higher level of flexibility with a strong tendency to cut-down on stocks, Labo-Cer invested in another press each year, as of 2002, until owning 8 presses altogether in 2005.
At the end of 2009, despite the worldwide economic crisis and, even worse still, the tragic death of the technical director and founder, Aldino Fornaciari, the owners decided to invest in their skills and in the company, by doubling the productive facilities and the plants.
Today, it has twelve presses and 2 industrial kilns that work over three shifts, 24 hours a day, to produce an average of 35.000 special pieces a day.
Without ever forgetting its artisanal origins, Labo-cer is today a solid enterprise in the tile manufacturing industry. A young and dynamic team that has grown, always concentrating on total quality and maximum production flexibility. This translates into products with constant features and a one-of-a-kind customer service.
