Cosentino Group Grows Sales Network in North America and Moves Subsidiary HQ to Miami
April 13, 2017
The Cosentino Group, whose North American sector is mainly composed of 42 Cosentino Centers, 36 located in the U.S. and four in Canada, as well as three Cosentino City showrooms and two distribution hubs, has recently opened six new Centers in the U.S. These facilities, most of which are located in states new to the company, combine the functions of warehouse, training center, offices and showroom. The launches mean that Cosentino now has its own facilities in half of the 50 American states, proving the company’s commitment to a key commercial market that currently represents 55 percent of the Group’s total sales.
Two additional Cosentino City Centers will open soon, one in San Francisco at the end of April and another in Miami’s Design District in July. The increase in locations goes hand-in-hand with growth in the number of employees to more than 1,200 in the U.S. and Canada by the end of this year.
The headquarters of the subsidiary Cosentino North America will be relocated to Miami during summer 2017. This strategic decision will bring greater efficiency to the management of the North American market as well as better coordination both with the Group’s headquarters in Almeria, Spain and with the rest of the continent.
“Since we opened the subsidiary in 1997, Houston has been an incredible place for our operations in the USA, and our business in the city as well as in Texas will continue to grow strongly in the coming years,” said Eduardo Cosentino, EVP of Global Sales for Cosentino Group and CEO of Cosentino North America. “However, it is clear that in order to sustain our growth and achieve greater efficiency we need our corporate headquarters to be located in a global city, from where we can centralize management for the American continent. Without a doubt this move will help us in our objective of expanding even more in the USA over the coming years, consolidating our leadership and being able to meet the demands of this competitive market.”
