Cosentino Goes South As Australian Business Continues to Thrive
March 15, 2016
Cosentino, world leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, has today announced its expansion into South Australia with the business establishing local facilities in Adelaide. The move is the first in what is already shaping up to be big year for Cosentino, as the team sets ambitious targets for 2016 to strengthen its presence in the local market.
From 1 March, Cosentino will have a team on the ground in Adelaide to offer new customer service and marketing and sales support for Cosentino’s portfolio of brands including Dekton® and Silestone® by Cosentino. The move will see the business’ three-year partnership with Galvin Hardware evolve to provide distribution and logistics services.
The Adelaide team will be led by new recruit, Ben Pinfield who joins Cosentino as General Manager for South Australia. Ben joins Cosentino from having moved to Australia from the UK where he was responsible for business development with Dupont and more recently Porcelanosa, bringing with him a vast knowledge of the industry from fabrication to design. He will be supported by Craig Addams as Commercial Project Sales Manager who joins from Galvins where he previously worked as a sales representative. The team in South Australia will be further supported by Cosentino’s teams in Sydney and Melbourne.
Gary Isherwood, Area Director for Cosentino Australia, comments: “We’ve had a presence in South Australia for the last three years thanks to our strong partnership with Will Galvin and his team. We want to thank Galvin Hardware for all of their hard work and we’re looking forward to continuing to work with the team as we move into this next phase.”
“I’m happy to welcome Ben and Craig to the Cosentino family and am looking forward to seeing what new approaches they bring to the team. South Australia has a unique perspective and approach to design so we’re really looking forward to working with the local design community to expand our product offering and strengthen relationships with customers.”
Cosentino’s extensive range of product include Dekton®, an ultracompact surface with almost limitless applications and Silestone® by Cosentino, available in more than 60 colours and three textural options; matte, suede and volcanic, guaranteed to suit any design or style.
With 2016 marking Cosentino’s fifth year of operations in Australia, the business continues to build momentum within the local market. In recent years, Cosentino has expanded operations across Australia’s eastern seaboard including warehouses and showrooms across NSW, Victoria and Queensland as well as local operations in Tasmania.
