COSENTINO OPENS SAN FRANCISCO CENTER
July 24, 2012
Last week, Cosentino, the global leader in natural stone, quartz, and recycled surfacing, opened its ninth North American Cosentino Center in San Francisco. More than 225 building and design industry leaders and top Cosentino executives attended the grand opening reception. The new San Francisco 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 July 12 program included remarks from Eduardo Cosentino, CEO of Cosentino North America; Chad Wold, General Manager for the San Francisco Cosentino Center; and Brandon Calvo, Chief Operating Officer of distribution. The evening featured a flamenco performance and some attendees participated in an interactive game, where they visited stops throughout the facility to learn about Cosentino’s vast product offerings and earn a prize.
Now, all visitors to the San Francisco center will be able to explore and engage in the kitchen and bath experience — from material and color selection to specification and fabrication. The Cosentino Center showcases 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, and 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.
