In 2015 Silestone celebrates 25 years of providing homes around the world with design, quality and style. When the product was created in 1990 it came in a limited range of 6 colours and was only available in Spain.
Today, there are more than 60 colours and the brand is available in more than 80 countries spanning six continents. Constant commitment to innovation, product diversification and international expansion has led the multinational company based in the Spanish province of Almería to increase its capacity from a single production line to the eleven that exist today. Silestone is now the market leader in quartz surfaces with a worldwide distribution network of more than 90 Cosentino Centres.
To commemorate this anniversary, the Cosen-tino Group recently staged an event at its Cantoria headquarters in which Cosentino’s founders, the Martínez-Cosentino Justo brothers, the executive board and a group of employees celebrated their collective achievement. Special mentions went out to almost 60 people who experienced the creation of Silestone first hand.
Silestone was a revolution for the stone industry, and for professionals working in the sector. The material came about through Cosentino’s determination to combine the best of natural stone in a single surface with one-of-a-kind physical and mechanical qualities, made possible thanks to the company’s strategy of research and innovation. All subsequent advancements in performance and product quality have established Silestone as more than just a simple material for decoration or construction, bringing new concepts in design and colour to kitchens in particular, and more recently, to bathrooms. Silestone encourages the creation of exciting designs ranging from the most beautiful kitchen work surfaces to the most innovative commercial projects. Such undertakings are realised owing to an extremely wide range of colours, unique finishes and unrivalled technical and aesthetic properties.
To mark this anniversary, Cosentino is extending its warranty on Silestone from 10 to 25 years on any work surfaces purchased from 1 January 2015 onwards.
