Focusing on Quality Over Capacity
Since their company’s inception in 1995, Carol and Paul Lundgren, the owners of Infinity Stone Corp., have made it a priority to deliver quality craftsmanship and service, while meeting schedules on time. Inside their facility in Portland, OR, is a line of state-of-the-art equipment, and 29 employees, who focus on team performance - all of which help bring these results.
“We are a team of professionals and skilled fabricators, working together to ensure that our customers receive quality slab stone craftsmanship delivered on schedule with exceptional service,” said Carol Lundgren. “Our current shop equipment can produce over 100 average-sized kitchen countertops a month.”
For templating, the company prints mylar templates for every project that uses an LT55 Laser Templator from Laser Products of Romeoville, IL, which also get downloaded to a PDF and to its CNC. However, when it comes to a precise, custom project, wood templates are applied.
Lundgren explained that as of right now, the company hopes to ride out the downturn in the economy, but the business will remain focused on quality over production capacity. “We probably will not try to return to five jobs a day as this capacity is tough to manage long term,” she said. “Quality suffers, and we focus on providing quality, custom stone craftsmanship.”
