Las Tunas company contributing to Cuba's Housing Program
A metal carpentry in the eastern Cuban province Las Tunas has started the production of more than 20,000 modules of windows and doors destined for a nationwide housing program.
The workers of DURALMET are also making sinks, fenders and truck cabins, as well other items, which are in high demand across the country.
Enmanuel Salas, director of that entity, told the Cuban News service that they use high quality materials that guarantee the durability of their products.
In 2006, this company exceeded its production targets by 31 percent.
Given the excellence of its productions, this factory won the golden Quality Crown Award, which is granted by the Business Initiatives Directions international agency.
It also received a prize by the local office of the Ministry of Science Technology and the Environment, acknowledging the effective application of technological innovations.
As part of the efforts that Cuba is undertaking to raise the quality of life of its people, the housing program has been given top priority by the island's authorities. Consequently, in 2006 some 110 families moved into new houses.
