The 2010 Nominating Committee for Stone World magazine has named Matt Lansing of Stone Innovations, Inc. in Plover, WI, as Fabricator of the Year Award. The award was presented at StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas 2011 in Las Vegas, NV. Criteria for the award is as follows:

• cooperation in sharing technology with the industry

• willingness to pioneer in the use of new technology

• fostering educational programs for the training of stoneworkers in industry methods

• promoting technological progress through association work

Lansing, a third-generation stoneworker, has been in the stone fabrication business for over 20 years. His company, Stone Innovations Inc. - along with its staff of highly trained craftsmen - operates some of the most advanced fabrication equipment in the industry. Lansing has become one of the most influential leaders of the Stone Fabricators Alliance (SFA), serving on its Board of Directors since its inception. He has hosted several workshops, inviting the industry in to his facility to learn tricks of the trade. This past spring, Lansing shared his idea for the SFA Mega-Workshop, where machinery manufacturers, tool suppliers and other stone-related companies could demonstrate their respective products in a real-life setting. This past October in St. Louis, MO, Matt sacrificed three weeks away from both his family and his business to ensure the success of the Mega-Workshop.

A full report on StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas will appear in the April 2011 issue of Stone World.
