Caesarstone Partners with IKEA

Posted on 25 July 2013 by cradmin

Caesarstone, Israel-based quartz surfacing producer, has entered into an agreement with IKEA US to serve as the retail company’s exclusive non-laminate countertop vendor, conducting operations in 38 stores in 22 states. Caesarstone will source, finish and distribute countertop products, including its quartz surfacing as well as other materials. The implementation of this program is expected to be a gradual process, extending beyond 2013, according to a release by the company. “We are excited to begin this important relationship with one of the world’s great retailers,” said Yosef Shiran, Caesarstone CEO. “IKEA has been a driving force in bringing great modern design and tremendous value to a wide range of consumers around the world, particularly through their customized kitchen and bath product lines.”

    Oh please tell me when this is to occur, or if it already has….. I’m set to purchase my Ikea kitchen this weekend, and would love to include this countertop material in the process. Makes it so much easier than trying to outsource it from another vendor!

    Ugh!!!!! Please let me know ASAP

    From what I can tell, you likely won’t see much movement on this until 2014, although some stores are likely to be implementing it already. According to the official release, the agreement will have “no material impact” in 2013. I have heard that some stores, though, in limited regions are already working on this. I would just suggest calling your local Ikea and asking them.
