Silestone is celebrating 25 years of design innovation with its beautiful quartz surfaces available in more than 80 countries spanning six continents.

Silestone’s story began in 1990 in the Spanish province of Almería from a single production line with a limited range of six colours that were only available in Spain. Twenty-five years later, Silestone has grown into a market leader in quartz surfaces through constant commitment to innovation, product diversification and international expansion, with more than 60 colours, 11 production lines and a worldwide distribution network of more than 90 Cosentino Centres.

The important anniversary was commemorated by the Cosentino Group at its Cantoria headquarters with Cosentino's founders, the Martínez-Cosentino Justo Brothers, the executive board and a group of employees celebrating 25 years of the brand's history. Special mentions went out to almost 60 people who experienced the creation of Silestone first hand.

The Cosentino Group's founders, brothers Francisco, Eduardo and José Martínez-Cosentino Justo expressed gratitude to their employees for their effort and enthusiasm over the years.

Considered a revolution for the stone industry and for professionals working in the sector, the Silestone material was created by combining the best of natural stone in a single surface with one-of-a-kind physical and mechanical qualities, made possible thanks to Cosentino's research and innovation. Silestone has since then, evolved into a material that goes beyond decoration or construction to bring new concepts in design, colour and finish to kitchens in particular, and more recently to bathrooms.

To mark the 25th anniversary, Cosentino is extending the warranty on Silestone from 10 years to 25 years on any work surfaces purchased after 1 January 2015.

Silestone has also added the Eco product line in a new Silestone series, known as Silestone Eco Line. Consisting of 11 colours manufactured with at least 50% recycled materials such as glass, porcelain and vitrified ash, among others, the Silestone Eco Line series also contains an environment-friendly partially vegetable resin.

The Cosentino Group will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Silestone with more actions planned throughout 2015.
