COSENTINO UNVEILS INNOVATIVE ‘COSENTINO CENTER’ IN CHARLOTTE
April 1, 2012
Cosentino, the global leader in natural stone, quartz, and recycled surfacing, is opening a Cosentino center in Charlotte, North Carolina. Officially kicking off with a reception for industry leaders on Thursday April 12, the new Charlotte center will focus on enhancing the kitchen and bath design experience for architects, designers, fabricators, distributors and consumers. The opening also is part of an overall plan to continuously expand the company’s presence in the U.S. market in the next few years.
“As Cosentino’s presence continues to grow in North America, it’s imperative to provide the resources and support that architects and designers need to grow their businesses and be successful,” said Lorenzo Marquez, VP of Marketing for Cosentino North America. “That goal is the guiding vision behind the Cosentino Center concept.”
The Cosentino center concept already is a proven and essential fixture in Europe, where the company has its global headquarters. More than a showroom, the Cosentino center is designed to support, promote, and educate architects and designers by integrating distribution facilities with product display areas, meeting spaces for designers to bring clients, classrooms for continuing education, and fully functioning kitchens and event space for demonstrations. The centers create an interactive environment for architects, designers, distributors, and fabricators to view the latest products and design trends, earn continuing education credits, attend expert seminars, and receive training and on new production techniques and innovations.
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.
To meet increasing demand for its products, Cosentino opened its first Center in Anaheim, CA in 2010 and quickly followed with showrooms in Phoenix, San Francisco, Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, Orlando and San Diego. Additionally, eight more centers are planned to open in 2012 including Washington D.C., Cincinnati, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Austin, Portland, St. Louis and Denver.
The Charlotte Cosentino Center is located at 11435 Granite St., Suite B, Charlotte, NC 28273. Phone: (704) 504-1538.
