COSENTINO OPENS WESTCHESTER CENTER
May 10, 2013
Thursday, Cosentino, the global leader in natural stone, quartz, and recycled surfacing, opened its 14th North American Cosentino Center in Westchester. More than 300 building and design industry leaders and top Cosentino executives attended the grand opening reception. The new Westchester 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 May 9 program included remarks from Eduardo Cosentino, President and CEO of Cosentino North America; James Amendola, General Manager for the Westchester Cosentino Center; and Brandon Calvo, Chief Operating Officer of distribution. The evening featured a striking aerial performance in the center’s vast warehouse, and an interactive game, where attendees visited stops throughout the facility to learn about the array of Cosentino surface offerings and the winner took home an Apple iPad Mini.
Now, all visitors to the Westchester Center will be able to explore and engage in the kitchen and bath experience — from material and color selection to specification and fabrication. With more than 25,000 square feet, the Westchester 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.
