CHICAGO, IL -- Cosentino, a global leader in natural stone, quartz and recycled surfacing, recently opened its fifth Cosentino Center in North America in Chicago. More than 400 building and design industry leaders and top executives from Cosentino attended the Grand Opening reception. The new Chicago center -- designed by Isabella 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 September 15 program included remarks from Eduardo Cosentino, CEO of Cosentino North America, and Claudio Balbo, General Manager for the Chicago Cosentino Center. Guests mingled throughout Cosentino's 28,000-square-foot facility, which includes a distribution warehouse with giant slabs of 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.

More than a showroom and distribution center, the Cosentino Center is 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 and on new production techniques and innovations.
