The Spain-US Chamber of Commerce in Florida has announced the recipients of the prestigious Ponce de León awards 2020. The COSENTINO Group was awarded the Poncé de León “Company of the Year” award. The Ponce de Leon “Company of the Year” award is the Chamber’s recognition of companies whose innovation, passion and desire to grow has led them to success in the United States.
The awards coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce in Florida, an important milestone that symbolizes the strong ties between Spain and the United States since its inception. “Throughout the years, the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce of Florida has been a strategic partner for companies present in various economic sectors in the United States, promoting growth and development of both countries,” said Javier Estades-Saez, President of the binational organization. “These awards are the recognition of the chamber to companies and executives for their contributions to the progress and their determined commitment to the American market.”
The COSENTINO group is a global family business that produces and distributes innovative surfaces for the world of design and architecture. Cosentino is also celebrating its 40th anniversary this year — over the last four decades the brand has become the category leader in engineered quartz and ultra-compact surfacing.
“We’re honored to receive this distinction from the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce in Florida,” said Massimo Ballucchi, Executive Director of Cosentino Americas. “We’ve felt welcomed by the state of Florida since relocating our Americas headquarters here in 2017, and it continues to be an excellent home base for us, connecting us to our roots in Spain as we continue to expand and grow internationally.”
The Ponce de León Awards are awarded every year in the last quarter of the year and are presented within the framework of the Anniversary Gala of the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce in Florida. This year’s edition commemorating the 40th anniversary, will be postponed to 2021 due to Covid-19 restrictions, following the recommendations issued by US authorities.
