Following year-over-year sales growth and product demand, the surfacing brand will begin operations of fourth production line in Spain; open showrooms and logistics warehouse to service key markets
Castellón, SPAIN (2018) – The largest sintered stone surfacing brand, Neolith, manufactured by Spain-based company TheSize, will continue its global expansion with several key initiatives in 2018—including an added production line, showroom openings, and a new logistics warehouse—aimed to enhance support of the brand’s vast network of distributors, architects, designers and fabricators.
Neolith has changed the residential and commercial architectural design industry in North America and worldwide. Neolith pioneered luxury surfacing with extraordinary characteristics unmatched by natural stone, for countertops, flooring, interior wall cladding, exterior facades and more. Developing a strong position in the marketplace, Neolith is now available in more than 80 countries and has achieved a sales increase of at least 40 percent year-over-year since 2011.
“Neolith’s success can be attributed to the superior resiliency, quality and characteristics of the material itself, but more importantly, to our partners around the globe who share a passion for persistent innovation, service and design,” said Mar Esteve, director of marketing, TheSize. “As we expand in 2018, customer satisfaction and accessibility is more important than ever. We are always looking for new ways to make the Neolith experience an excellent one, for our distributors, designers and their clients, and look forward to building on that this year and beyond.”
New Production Line
Neolith’s steady increase in sales and visibility in high-profile commercial and residential projects has prompted expansion of its production capacity. At its headquarters and manufacturing factory in Castellón, Spain, Neolith will start operating a fourth production line during the first quarter of 2018. This additional line, which will manufacture slabs in 3mm and 6mm thicknesses for furniture, flooring, interior cladding and exterior facades, makes Neolith the only brand to have five kilns exclusively devoted to sintered stone.
Global Showroom Openings
With strategic distribution locations in more than 80 countries and hundreds of major metro showroom sites, Neolith is dedicated to customer accessibility and first-class shopping experiences. In 2018, the brand will celebrate openings of additional showrooms in key cities around the world, including: Madrid, Spain; Tokyo, Japan; and Ramallah, Palestine, with more locations planned throughout Europe, Latin American and Asia in the coming year. The showrooms will demonstrate unique design applications and will allow architects, designers, homeowners and building owners to better experience the versatility and performance characteristics of Neolith over natural stone alternatives.
London Warehouse Opening
In addition to new showrooms, the 2018 opening of a Neolith logistics warehouse in London, England will improve product accessibility and shipping lead times for crucial European markets. The warehouse’s proximity to shipping ports and to the high concentration of distributors throughout Western Europe provides a logistics advantage over the competition. Carrying a centralized stock of Neolith’s most in-demand SKUs, the London warehouse opening is a strategic expansion designed to open up storage space for distributors and result in faster delivery times for projects.
In 2017, Neolith also opened a warehouse in Norfolk, Virginia to provide the same logistics benefits to the U.S. market and increased project demand, particularly on the East Coast.
With a growing network of distributors across the U.S. and Canada, the product is readily available across North America. For a location near you or to learn more, visit Neolith at www.neolith.com.
