Natural Stone & Solid Surface Fabrication
LBL Fabrications is a state-of-the-art natural stone and solid surface fabrication company utilizing the latest Robotic Sawjet technology, specializing in custom projects for the residential and commercial in New England and the Mid-Atlantic markets utilizing granite, soapstone, marble, quartz, and solid surfaces.
Operating under new ownership and management, our 50,000 square foot facility is one of the largest fabrication facilities in New England. Based in Springfield Vermont, we offer service in cities across New England and the Mid-Atlantic.
We fabricate projects ranging from single residential baths and kitchens to multi-unit residential and large-scale commercial applications.
With multiple fabrication lines, equipped to handle different materials simultaneously, and with a large indoor floor area for inventory, there is no project too large or small that we cannot provide a quality solution with a quick turnaround.

The LBL Project Process
Once your project has been scheduled for template, LBL will send one of its skilled template technicians out to your project site to take detailed digital measurements that are then used to construct a digital template of your natural stone or solid surface project. We utilize state-of-the-art Laser Products LT-2D3D digital templating systems which deliver efficient, precise and comprehensive results with advanced CNC integration for seamless communication of template outputs to our fabrication environment.
2. preproduction / programming
During the preproduction/programming process, we take pictures of the slab to be fabricated and overlay digital template files to identify the best yield and best output. For slabs that have veining or other distinguishing characteristics, we utilize special digital software to analyze and optimally organize the pieces to be cut so that we can create a seamless looking end-product with matched veining. It is also during this stage that our robotic software determines where to utilize saw cutting and where to utilize waterjet cutting for extreme precision.
Once pre-programming has been completed, the cutting program is recorded by our Baca Robotic Saw-jet, which is a dual-table set-up that allows us to stage multiple slabs at a time. After our technician presses go, our robot swings to life and, with a high level of quality and precision, will cut the project slabs in a matter of minutes. Not only does this set us apart from our competition by vastly increasing our production volumes, we also are able to eliminate a great deal of human error in the process. In theory, we can receive a digital template, cut, polish, and deliver your natural stone or solid surface project for install within 24-48 hours.
Once the robot has completed the cutting process, we move relevant pieces to the Northwood CNC Fabcenter for routing. It is in this step that we take raw edges and shape the material to match the desired edge of the customer. Many of our competitors only use hand-held routers, which often result in uneven edge finishes with visible imperfections. Our CNC has a wide number of router tooling which enables us to create a wide variety of edge details to suit the tastes of all of our customers and does so in a manner that guarantees a flawless final product, free of any unevenness.
In the final step of the process, the pieces are moved from the router to our polishing center where a team of experienced polishers run pieces through our FASTBACK precision edge polisher and then through a seven step process including our Seam Phantom, to put the finishing touches on the all outside perimeter and inside edges to ensure a beautiful final product. We also examine the surface of all of the finished materials to identify any natural imperfections or pores which may need to be treated with an epoxy insertion. Our quality control technician inspects all pieces for fit and finish before moving the project pieces onto loading racks for delivery and installation.
We have dedicated installation crews who will travel to the project site to complete the physical install of the fabricated pieces. Our scheduler will be in contact with you to ensure our teams arrive within the scheduled window. An installation may take anywhere between two and six hours depending on the size and type of project.
