The Cosentino Group increased its expansion into Asia with the opening of a new Center in Kuala Lumpur.
25.04.2019 This full-service logistics facility allows the multinational to operate in Malaysia using its own assets for the first time; the Cosentino’s presence in the country had previously been limited to a showroom associated with a local distributor.
This new Cosentino Center in Kuala Lumpur, opened the 12th of April, covers a total area of 2,400 m2: 600 m2 have been allocated to office space and Cosentino’s own showroom, 200m2 are dedicated to a display space in partnership with other companies from the sector, while the remaining space will be home to the warehouse. The facilities represent a total investment of almost 800,000 euros, including its initial stock, and the Center begins operations with a team of 10 staff.
The opening event
Presiding over the event was Eduardo Cosentino, Cosentino’s Global Executive Vice President of Sales and CEO of Cosentino North America, with, Gines Navarro, Cosentino Sales ROW Vice President, Christophe Gontier, Oceania & Asia Sales Vice President, Ross Cameron, Regional Director for Asia and Mark Alban, Cosentino Malaysia’s General Manager also in attendance.
Mark Alban, Cosentino Malaysia’s General Manager: We see huge potential in Malaysia and we already have a solid and well-respected base here with several important clients. This is due in large part to the support we have received over the years from our Malaysian distributors and partners.
Ross Cameron, Cosentino’s Regional Director for Asia: Entering the Malaysian market came as a natural consequence of our growth over recent years in the southeast Asian market. This Center will help to further consolidate our presence in this country and will undoubtedly play a key role in the growth of sales and improvement in services in Asia.
