Stuart Young was named Fabricator of the Year by Stone World Magazine. This means that the last 7 winners all use the LT-55 or LT-55 XL Laser Templator. We think it says something that when we first launched the LT-55 in 2005, G.K. Naquin of Stone Interiors won and owns the LT-55. In the 7 years since, every winner has at least 1 Laser Templator, many have multiples.
