BRYAN, Ohio - The L.E. Smith Company, the nation's largest single location fabricator of laminate countertops, expanded its SQUAD quoting tool to include laminate.
As with its expertise in laminate countertop fabrication, L.E. Smith was the first developer of the technology required to quote the product, and online quoting had been anticipated.
Brian Smith, Director of Sales and third generation family owner, noted, "Laminate countertop fabrication is more complex than stone, so the development of this technology has been highly anticipated. Our clients have been asking for this tool for a long time, and we're really excited to share it with them."
