Laticrete donates products to Disabled Veterans Camp in Minnesota
July 22, 2008
Laticrete recently donated LATAPOXY 310 Rapid Stone Adhesive and the LATAPOXY 310 Cordless Mixer for a new 2,400 sq. ft. open air stone pavilion at the Disabled Veterans Camp in Marine on St. Croix, Minn. The Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local Union 1 of Minnesota/North Dakota volunteered their services and installed 18 columns with stone veneers and caps using the Laticrete products.
The project was spearheaded by Thomas Reger from the Cement Masons Local 633 in Minnesota. The Bricklayers Local Union 1 installation team was led by apprenticeship coordinators Rick Martagon (Navy Veteran) and Mark Wickstrom, Master Stone Carver and Stone Technician, and several other trade unions and suppliers.
“We have used LATAPOXY 310 Stone Adhesive in the past doing large-scale marble fireplaces,” said Martagon. “Tom Broderson (a Laticrete sales representative) brought the product over to our training center and the brick and stone guys loved it. It saved us a lot of time.”
