2020 marks the 40th anniversary of the creation of Mármoles Cosentino S.A., and the start of journey to the Cosentino Group of today.
Successor to a small marble processing workshop in Macael, the past four decades have seen milestones such as the creation of the Silestone and Dekton brands, and becoming the first Spanish firm to advertise during the Super Bowl.
President of Cosentino Group, Francisco Martínez-Cosentino Justo, said: “Together with my brothers, we wanted to create a project that was lasting, sustainable, and that would generate wealth for our nearest community and our entire sector. Those first dreams have been fulfilled. But the journey has been complicated, with very hard times. These months we’re getting to live another one of them. An unexpected and profound global health, social and economic crisis, which will surely transform us all. This 2020 has not brought us a favourable context to commemorate our 40 years of life as such.
“However, it is precisely in this type of situation, that we must look further. It’s time to honour all those professionals, like our own employees, who have followed and follow at the foot of the canyon while keeping our day-to-day lives, even saving lives at the risk of losing theirs as the heroic case of healthcare professionals and law enforcement. But it’s also time to keep it, to be strong, positive and to send a sincere message of optimism. We are experts in comebacks… in Cosentino, in our province, our region and our country. All together and united we will get through, no doubt. And, therefore, we want to continue to celebrate in the coming months, as far as possible, this birthday.”
Until the end of the year, Cosentino will be carrying out initiatives to recognise and thank those groups who have made a fundamental contribution to the company’s trajectory over the past 40 years.
