The Cosentino Group’s expansion continues in the USA with two new Centres in Florida and New York

The Cosentino Group, world leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, recently inaugurated two new Centres, logistics and comprehensive service centre facilities, in Frt Lauderdale (Florida) and Long Island (New York) respectively.

With these openings, the multinational will end 2014 with 24 centres of this kind in the United States and which are unique and pioneering within the stone sector on an international level.  To these facilities must be added the two hubs or logistics distribution centres — one located in the Port of Houston (Texas) and the other in Norfolk (Virginia)–, 14 factories and transformation plants as well as our association with 8 wholesale distributors, which together continue to strengthen Cosentino’s presence in the USA. The new centres will strengthen the operations and leadership of Cosentino in the American market, which in 2013 accounted for over 55% of the Group’s consolidated sales, and where it now has over 700 employees. Globally the company has over 90 Cosentino Centers worldwide and employs over 2.700 persons.

The Centres in Fort Lauderdale and in Long Island, together cover a total floor area of 6,000m2, consisting of the usual spaces that make up these Centres: slab storage, offices, showrooms and training rooms. The new space in Long Island, the first to have a Dekton® façade – ultra-compact surface – reinforces Cosentino’s presence in upstate New York where the company already has two other Centres in the towns of Rochester and Westchester.

Meanwhile, the Cosentino Centre in Fort Lauderdale (close to Miami), a city known as the “Venice of America”, covers a floor area of 3,700m2 and will serve southern Florida, home to a large community dedicated to design and renovation. In addition to this centre, the company’s operations in the state of Florida include another Centre in Orlando.

For Santiago Alfonso, Cosentino Group’s Marketing and Communications Director, “this year we have again increased our operations in the USA, our main market today, thanks to the opening of these new facilities and for the great success that our product Dekton® is enjoying”. “At the moment, with direct presence in 15 of the 50 states of the USA, plus in the capital Washington DC, we are able to meet the demand of the American market and offer the highest quality service to our customers and industry professionals. However, our goal is to continue to grow and further expand our presence in the United States over the coming years”, said Alfonso.
