German furniture specialist Alno has partnered with Cosentino to offer the Spanish brand’s Dekton surfaces to its network of retail clients.
The new partnership was launched at the last M.O.W trade fair in Germany by Cosentino’s European sales manager Parra Uribe and Alno chief executive Michael Spadinger.
Alno said: “This partnership is a testament to the quality, craftsmanship and innovative design that both companies pride themselves on, with wonderful new opportunities for designers, architects, retailers and specifiers alike. Both brands continue to make strides in sustainability in their production, transport and manufacture, and it is this commitment to longevity and environmental sustainability that makes this partnership so special.”
The collection initially comprises 25 colour choices, which Alno will make available in four variations under its Tailor concept, which gives retailers a choice of carcass interiors, exteriors and edge designs.
That means there will be a total of 100 Dekton by Cosentino options to choose from.
Cosentino’s Dekton is an ultra-compact surface made from a blend of ultra-compacted inorganic materials that is said to offer high resistance to UV, scratches, stains and thermal shock.
To help support this new collaboration, Alno is also producing its first-ever digital sales manual. Alno says the online price guide will give its trade partners a competitive edge and uses Dein-Konfigurator (Your Configurator) to provide sellers with all the information and data they need to deal with customer requests on computers, notebooks, tablets or smartphones.
