Cosentino, a producer and distributor of natural stone, quartz, and recycled surfacing, is relocating its Americas Headquarters from Sugarland, TX to Coral Gables, FL. The relocation will create 85 new jobs and invest more than $1 million in the local community. Cosentino currently employs 60 Floridians across three distribution locations in Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, and Lauderhill. The company also plans to open a design center in the Miami Design District.
“Miami’s location offers key strategic advantages to continue targeting the Americas,” said CEO Eduardo Cosentino. “The entrepreneurial and innovative workforce in Miami better positions us to provide new products and designs that are both sustainable and advanced. Our partners at Enterprise Florida and the Miami-Dade Beacon Council helped make this move a reality, and we could not have found a better place to do business.”
Spain-based Cosentino Group is a worldwide producer and distributer of high-value innovative surfaces for architecture and design. The company currently employs more than 3,700 people worldwide, including 1,200 in the U.S. The new Americas Headquarters will house a management office with finance and sales personnel.
“I am proud to announce that Cosentino will be relocating their Americas Headquarters from Texas to Florida and creating 85 new jobs for our families,” said Governor Rick Scott. “This announcement would not be possible without the help of Enterprise Florida and shows the incredibly important role EFI has in out-competing other states like Texas to bring new job opportunities to our state. I am excited to welcome Cosentino to Florida and look forward to their future success.”
The project was made possible through the close partnerships between Enterprise Florida, the Miami-Dade Beacon Council, the City of Coral Gables, CareerSource Florida, and local colleges and universities.
“Cosentino is a great company and I am excited to see them bring their Americas headquarters to Miami as well as the 85 jobs that will now be right here in Florida,” said Mike Grissom, interim President and CEO of Enterprise Florida, Inc. “Our state is an amazing place to live, work, and raise a family, and companies like Cosentino recognize this. I am happy to welcome them to Florida and look forward to their continued success.”
“I am proud that after growing its distribution business in Florida, Cosentino has recognized the value in moving its Americas Headquarters to the Sunshine State,” said Cissy Proctor, Executive Director of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. “Miami’s unmatched global resources and talented workforce are working to attract companies like Cosentino to our state every day.”
