The theme for this year’s convention, held in January, was “Committed to the Future. Committed to You,” with which the multinational firm aims to convey to all attendees its vision to build a prosperous, safe, sustainable industry together for the future. With this in mind, Cosentino’s top executives presented the company’s latest initiatives in the fields of occupational safety, sustainability, quality and innovation during the various talks and working sessions. 

In the area of innovation, in particular, the event served to showcase the firm’s key upcoming products, which will be star exhibits at some of the industry’s biggest fairs this month, namely the Interior Design Show (IDS) in Toronto and KBIS in Las Vegas.

One of the highlights was the opening speech by Francisco Martínez-Cosentino, President of the Cosentino Group, which focused on the crucial moment at which the industry finds itself: “We are in the midst of an era of profound change that is challenging us to be competitive, agile and socially conscious. From a business perspective, we have to reinforce the integration of environmental measures and values, in addition to further improving our occupational health and safety policies and continuing our digital transformation.” ”In the same way, we have to adapt to the needs of our clients and users. In our case, we must pursue innovation to develop responsible and competitive products in this increasingly global industry, in order to create a sustainable and long-term sector,” concluded Martínez-Cosentino.

Finally, this edition of “Cosentino 100” served as the perfect setting in which to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Eduardo Cosentino’s appointment as CEO of Cosentino North America, the subsidiary of the group that manages this important market from its headquarters in Miami. Over these ten years at the helm, Eduardo Cosentino, together with his executive team, has spearheaded significant growth – both in the number of employees and the number of facilities owned throughout the North American territory. This has meant that Cosentino now boasts one of the largest commercial and distribution networks in the region for a Stone manufacturing company. Likewise, the company has further reinforced its leading position in the sector with the great progress and diversification of its main brands, Silestone® and Dekton®.

The Cosentino Group is a global, family-owned company that produces and distributes high value innovative surfaces in more than 110 countries for architecture and design. For more information visit .
