Cosentino Opening Second Major Hub and Distribution Center

Posted on 11 July 2013 by cradmin

Cosentino is opening a new major U.S. hub in Hampton, Va., this month. The Cosentino Northeast Hub will become the second central logistics and receiving facility for the company, which manufactures Silestone quartz surfacing and other natural and engineered stone materials. Located at 2301 Aluminum Ave., the hub will have more than 160,000 sq. ft. of warehouse and office space and serve as a central location to receive all of the company’s products manufactured in Spain for customers along the East Coast. The facility will catalog and store the products, expediting distribution to regional Cosentino Centers, home improvement centers, fabricators and kitchen & bath specialty stores to meet demand from East Coast customers. The facility represents a significant investment in infrastructure and inventory, with the construction costing $3 million and inventory of $10 million.

“Cosentino’s Northeast Hub is located in close proximity to the port, making it an ideal location to receive shipments from Spain, where all of the Cosentino brands are manufactured,” said Lorenzo Marquez, North American VP of marketing. “This second hub will complement our Houston logistics hub, allowing for Cosentino to expedite shipments for the growing residential and commercial needs along the entire East Coast, as well as supplying the eight Cosentino Centers in the region.”
