Cosentino, the global leader in the distribution and production of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, announces the opening of its Cosentino Salt Lake Center in Utah. This marks the brand’s first expansion into Utah — reflecting its continued expansion in North America, which now makes up more than 60 percent of Cosentino’s global sales. The Center officially opened Nov. 7, 2018, with a festive reception for Salt Lake City’s burgeoning architecture and design community.

More than a showroom, the Salt Lake 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 fully experience the expansive offering of Cosentino products such as such as ultra-compact Dekton and Silestone, earn continuing education credits, attend expert seminars, and receive training and on new production techniques and innovations.

Salt Lake City is the latest of 43 Cosentino Centers in North America. The 5,000 sq ft showroom boasts stunning kitchen areas and a gallery display of full slabs showcasing the latest colors. The Selection Center, a luminary of the Center experience, features a state-of-the-art LED sample viewing program complete with augmented reality technology so guests can envision Cosentino product in an array of applications. The Center’s expert team will offer personalized assistance and information to customers using interactive technologies that enhance the product selection and customization experience.

“The Salt Lake City area continues to establish itself as a flourishing architecture and design community in North America,” said Eduardo Martinez-Cosentino, CEO of Cosentino North America and executive vice president of global sales. “By expanding our presence in the Salt Lake City area, we’ll ensure the city’s preeminent architects and designers have instant access to our latest products and expertise that underscores our firm commitment to the U.S. market.”

As a family-owned business with its world headquarters in Almeria, Spain, Cosentino Group has long been the trusted surfacing brand in Europe and continues to strengthen its global presence. The opening of the Cosentino Salt Lake Center reflects the company’s overarching strategy to strengthen its position as the surfacing leader in the United States.
