In October, during the The Home Depot’s annual supplier conference, Cosentino was recognized for its product innovations, speed to market and collaborative spirit with the retailer’s business model in North America. The two businesses have been aligned for nearly 20 years.ears.
“This award is the merit recognition of a collaboration from multiple divisions across Cosentino, including product innovation and design, manufacturing, logistics, account management, sales and marketing,” said Lorenzo Marquez, VP of marketing for Cosentino North America. “Building our relationship with The Home Depot has been a key component in expanding Cosentino’s presence in North America, and we look forward to further success for both brands as our partnership continues and grows.”
Earlier this month, Cosentino was recognized with the Envision Award at the annual ISFA conference awards dinner, for developing a highly durable large-format Dekton tile, the surface manufacturer’s signature material, which allows traditional countertop fabricators to expand into flooring with a product that can be used in both interior and exterior applications. The award is presented annually to the ISFA member that creates an imaginative and standout product for the surfacing industry. Cosentino received the Envision Award in 2014, during the debut of Dekton, an ultra-compact surface that was the first of its kind.
