The 10-year-old company markets itself as an environmentally-friendly manufacturer of recycled glass and cement countertops, and has built up goodwill among its distributors and vendors. They helped soften the blow by lending money, extending deadlines, and volunteering to help with repairs. Of course, it was the employees who handled the lion’s share of the work, says LaMagna: “Every single piece of anything in this factory was dried out, checked, and then we had to start ordering [new parts] from Germany, Italy. We did not lay anybody off.”
