MIAMI—Cosentino announces the opening of its new Americas headquarters in Miami in the heart of the Coral Gables district. According to the company, the new facility will centralize the company’s management and operations across North, Central and South America.

On Nov. 9, Eduardo Cosentino, CEO of Cosentino North America and global sales executive vice president, hosted a grand opening celebration to unveil the renovated 24,000-square-foot headquarters. Employees, brand partners, esteemed guests and media celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the milestone.

“This is without a doubt one of the most important milestones in our trajectory in the Americas,” Eduardo Cosentino says. “The Miami offices mark a profound change in our company culture and strategy. From now on we will be in a position to centralize management more efficiently for the whole continent and improve communication with our headquarters in Almería, Spain. This is a great step forward for our operations in the Americas, and is the best way to achieve our objective of continued growth and strengthen our leadership within the industry.”

Earlier this summer the multibillion dollar, family-owned Spain-based manufacturer began relocating its corporate operations from Houston to Miami as part of its four-year strategic business plan, outlining expansion, investment and distribution to further position the manufacturer as a category leader in North America and beyond. North America makes up 55 percent of the Cosentino Group’s total sales and is where most of Cosentino’s infrastructure and staff are located. In the past six years, the company has almost tripled the number of centers or warehouses in the U.S. and Canada, from 17 at the end of 2011 to 43 currently.

This new infrastructure further reinforces Cosentino’s presence in south Florida, where the company already has three Cosentino Centers and one cut-to-size processing plant. Cosentino also plans to open its fifth Cosentino City in North America in Miami’s Design District by the end of this year. The relocation brings more than 177 high wage jobs to Florida and invests more that $11.5 million in the local community. The new central offices will manage 51 existing Cosentino Centers or integral service storage facilities, four Cosentino showrooms, two distribution hubs and 12 cut-to-size processing plants. The new headquarters will own 70 infrastructure assets in total and employ a total of 1,400 people.
