Digging for higher productivity? So is excavator attachment manufacturer Lameter. Find out why they think Hardox® wear plate is a cut above the rest in demanding marble quarries and mining sites.
Since the times of Ancient Rome more than 2,000 years ago, people have been working the marble quarries of Carrara, Italy, to excavate one the most highly prized types of marble in the world. When Michelangelo got his hands on it, he created his iconic statue of David. Today Lameter continues this long tradition, providing attachments for equipment used in Carrara and other quarry and mining sites around the globe.
The company has an intimate connection to the area and the industry – and to Hardox® wear plate. Headquartered in Genoa, Italy, about an hour from Carrara, Lameter was one of the first manufacturers anywhere to make earthmoving machinery for marble quarries. And it has been faithfully using Hardox® steel since the end of the 1980s, when the steel was imported to Italy for the very first time.
