April 20, 2012
Cosentino Ribbon Cutting (l to r): Eduardo Cosentino, CEO of Cosentino North America, Brian Lynch, Northeast Regional Director and interim General Manager for the Charlotte Cosentino Center
Last week, Cosentino, the global leader in natural stone, quartz, and recycled surfacing, opened its eighth North American Cosentino Center in Charlotte. More than 180 building and design industry leaders and top Cosentino executives attended the grand opening reception. The new Charlotte Center, designed by Isabel Martinez-Cosentino, aims to enhance both the trade and consumer experience and continues Cosentino’s mission to expand its presence in the U.S. market over the next year.
The April 12 program included remarks from Eduardo Cosentino, CEO of Cosentino North America, and Brian Lynch, Northeast Regional Director and interim acting General Manager for the Charlotte Cosentino Center. Visitors to the Charlotte center will be able to explore and engage in all aspects of the kitchen and bath experience—from material and color section to specification and fabrication. It will include a comprehensive showcase of the full portfolio of Cosentino brands, including: Silestone Natural Quartz; ECO by Cosentino recycled surfaces; SenSa® Granite; Scalea Natural Stone; Marlique™ Marble; MURO™ Mosaics; and the Prexury™ Collection, a semi-precious stone line handmade by expert craftsmen.
The Cosentino Center is more than a showroom and distribution center. It’s designed to support, promote, and educate trade professionals by integrating distribution facilities, exhibition areas, workspaces for designers to bring clients, classrooms for continuing education and fully functioning kitchens and event space for demonstrations. The centers create a unique interactive environment for architects, designers, distributors and fabricators to view the latest products and design trends, attend educational workshops, hear from visiting expert speakers and receive training on new product innovations and installation techniques.
The Charlotte opening marks the first center in North Carolina.
