The opening of the Melbourne Centre was attended by Spanish motorcycle racer Jorge Lorenzo, who is sponsored by Dekton, as the event coincided with the Australian Grand Prix.

The company expects to close 2014 with sales up over 60%, doubling their turnover for 2015. 

Gines Navarro, sales director for the Asian and Pacific markets, commented: “Since our arrival in 2011, the Australian market has become increasingly important within the Cosentino Group each year. This year, with the opening of our centres in Melbourne and Brisbane, we have the capability to cover the needs of the entire country with maximum efficacy. We are now closer to our clients and can provide service of the highest possible quality.”

Gary Isherwood, director of Cosentino Australia, attending the launch of the Melbourne centre, added: “Melbourne is at the heart of design in Australia. The new facilities opened today by Jorge Lorenzo represent a great qualitative leap in our efforts to offer architects, designers and consumers of this region a space where they can appreciate the direct forms of beauty and functionality that our materials represent.”
