The program, which was held on March 6, 2014, included remarks from Eduardo Cosentino, President and CEO of Cosentino North America; Alex Rioja, General Manager for the Houston Cosentino Center; and Brandon Calvo, Chief Operating Officer of Distribution. Cosentino was awarded a Proclamation from the City of Houston: Mayor Annise Parker’s office declared that March 6th is Cosentino Group Center Day. The Grand Opening party celebrated the company’s Spanish roots with tapas, Spanish wine and flamenco dancers.
Now, all visitors to the Houston 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 27,000 square feet, 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, and Dekton, an innovative and ultra-compact surface with interior and exterior architectural applications.
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.
