New lock system for the tevi machine

After a brainstorming, a new lock system for the tevi machine has been developed and now is being tested under strict controls in Ecuador.
The new system saves about 3 seconds per tile, which means hundreds of tiles per year, as well as less effort by the worker.

In 2005, SofoNic has started a dual education program for masons in Nicaragua, using its house-building programs as a base. Teaming up with the local technical school in Jinotepe they are graduating about ten masons every year since. Most f them have found jobs in construction or have started a business on their own. SofoNic has contracted several of them as master masons in the reconstruction programs in Haiti.
