Spain-Based Cosentino Group Plans Jacksonville, Florida, Manufacturing Plant
The new facility, located off Interstate 10 on 330 acres and 20 miles east of the Port of Jacksonville, will help streamline distribution channels in North America to meet demand for the brand’s most sought-after colors. Operations are scheduled for the end of 2028.
“In the 78 years that our family has been in the surfacing business, this is one of our greatest milestones yet,” said Eduardo Cosentino, CEO of Cosentino Americas and Executive Vice President of Global Sales. “The North American market has come to represent more than half of our global sales since we established a foothold here in 1997, and has played a pivotal role in positioning our brand at the forefront of the industry. This endeavor is part of our long-term vision and has been in development for many years. We’re confident the new manufacturing facility will propel further growth for years to come.”
The Cosentino Group is a global and Spanish company that produces and distributes high value innovative surfaces for architecture and design.
“Today is an amazing day for Jacksonville and the state of Florida,” noted Laura DiBella, Florida Secretary of Commerce and President & CEO of Enterprise Florida. “Under the leadership of Governor Ron DeSantis, we continue to see international manufacturers like Cosentino expand their global operations in the Sunshine State at a rapid clip. With so many options to choose from in the Southeast U.S., Enterprise Florida is thrilled to welcome Cosentino to 'America's Logistics Center', and we look forward to supporting them as they grow here in Florida.”
“We have been strategic in how we’ve marketed this valuable piece of industrial real estate to attract a world-class manufacturer of which there would be mutual benefit. We found the ideal manufacturer in Cosentino,” JAXUSA Partnership President Aundra Wallace added. “This is a major win for Cecil Commerce Center and a collaborative effort. We thank all of our partners, from the city and state to JEA and JAXPORT, for coming to the table and making this important deal happen for our community.”
