Havana´s first luxury hotel furniture made by Cuban enterprise
LUDEMA Furniture enterprise took over the production of about 3,500 articles from 171 assortments destined for the Manzana Kempinski Havana Grand Hotel, Cuba's first five-star plus luxury tourist facility.
Luis Cruz, general secretary of the union's bureau of that entity, told ACN that the Ministry of Industries was assigned the responsibility for furnishing the building, which will soon open its doors in the vicinity of Havana´s Central Park.
He mentioned that LUDEMA had experience working for tourism facilities such as Habana Libre hotel, but this demand was a major challenge due to the extremely high quality of this facility.
We had a preparation process that began in late 2015 and included the visualization of videos on the execution of high standard furniture; in addition to the guide of LUDEMA design group, said Cruz.
The Ministry of Industries guaranteed top quality raw material for the preparation of pieces designed for areas such as the lobby and the rooms, he noted.
As result of that experience and the training the workers obtained, we are able to respond to the country's future needs in terms of furniture production, the official added.
Cruz announced that they had submitted the necessary documentation to take over the furniture of the Packard Hotel, which is being built in this city, and that they are currently working on supplying the keys north of Villa Clara and Varadero resort.
According to executives of the Almest Real Estate Company, who are in charge of the construction of the Manzana Kempinski Havana Grand Hotel, 80 percent of the furniture was made by the national industry, and due to their quality they expect to continue working together. (acn)
