The world leader in the production and distribution of quartz and other natural stone surfaces, Cosentino is celebrating sales of 18.4 million for 2011 in the UK and Ireland markets, which was a 19% increase on 2010. The projected sales figure for the UK and Ireland markets for 2012 is 21.6 million euros.
Cosentino currently has four centres in the UK and Ireland; Hook, Manchester, Gloucester and Dublin, which will be joined by a new UK centre in Darlington. Based at the Faverdale East Industrial estate, the Darlington centre benefits from direct access to major transport links and can deliver to North Yorkshire and Cumbria in just one hour and Scotland in three and a half hours.
The new centre will be run by General Manager, Philip Eeles who has worked in the industry for over 25 years. With a Sales Director background, Philip has a proven track record of achieving significant turnover and profitability. Philip says, “This new Cosentino centre with a state of the art warehouse will help meet the increasing demand from consumer and commercial customers. Combined with high levels of customer service, the aim is to further grow awareness and desire for the innovative range of Cosentino products.”
The impressive Cosentino Darlington centre benefits from an efficient warehouse that will carry over 3,000 slabs of stock, including Silestone quartz work surfaces, Sensa Granite worktops and ECO by Cosentino, a revolutionary recycled surface made from 75% recycled materials.
A training room that seats 30 people will be used for local meetings, as well as staff training and briefings. All Silestone dealers are specifically trained and accredited. Set display areas within the centre will showcase the stunning Cosentino product ranges for end users, architects, designers, builders, Stonemasons and kitchen and bathroom studios to visit, by appointment.
The Cosentino centre concept is an ambitious project by Cosentino, to transform its warehouses into a fully integrated service for its customers in the architecture, design and stone industry. Cosentino centres will offer an excellent, high quality service, incorporating a showroom, storage facilities, offices and training room.
