From a small marble processing workshop in Macael, Spain, to an international entity with a turnover of more than 5,000 employees worldwide.
Cosentino, which has offices in Dubai Design District, marks four decades in business with a hopeful missive to its work force.
Francisco Martínez-Cosentino Justo, president of Cosentino Group, says: "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 with all ours."
The family-owned firm produces and distributes surfaces for architects and designers and is behind brands including Silestone, Dekton and Sensa by Cosentino.
