New Cosentino Center in Malaysia
April 15, 2019
Last Friday, on April 12th, The Cosentino Group increased its expansion into Asia with the opening of a new “Center” in Kuala Lumpur.
This full-service logistics facility allows the multinational company to operate in Malaysia using its own assets for the first time; Cosentino’s presence in the country had previously been limited to a showroom associated with a local distributor.
The new “Cosentino Center” in Kuala Lumpur covers a total area of 2,400m2 ; 600m2 have been allocated to office space and Cosentino’s own showroom, 200m2 are dedicated to a display space in partnership with other companies from the sector, while the remaining space will be home to the warehouse.
The facilities represent a total investment of over $900,000, including its initial stock, and the Center begins operations with a team of 10 staff members.
The opening of these spectacular logistics facilities was attended by the company’s most senior representatives in the region.
Presiding over the event was Eduardo Cosentino, Cosentino’s Global Executive Vice President of Sales and CEO of Cosentino North America, along with Gines Navarro, Cosentino Sales ROW Vice President, Christophe Gontier, Oceania & Asia Sales Vice President, Ross Cameron, Regional Director for Asia and Mark Alban, Cosentino Malaysia’s General Manager also in attendance.
Mark Alban, Cosentino Malaysia’s General Manager: “We see huge potential in Malaysia and we already have a solid and well-respected base here with several important clients. This is due in large part to the support we have received over the years from our Malaysian distributors and partners.”
Ross Cameron, Cosentino’s Regional Director for Asia: “Entering the Malaysian market came as a natural consequence of our growth over recent years in the southeast Asian market. This Center will help to further consolidate our presence in this country and will undoubtedly play a key role in the growth of sales and improvement in services in Asia”.
Cosentino in Asia
Singapore is the nerve centre for Cosentino’s business in Asia. The multinational company opened major infrastructure facilities here in 2017, combining a large logistics warehouse under the “Center” concept and the regional head office of Cosentino’s operations for the whole of Asia.
Singapore is also the location for one of the first “City” showrooms to be opened by Cosentino around the world.
The company’s owned assets in the region are complemented by a Logistics Operator located in Japan.
