CaesarStone announces new recycled color Starry Night

Van Nuys, CA (October 22, 2010): Announcing the newest addition to CaesarStone’s Environment First collection: Starry Night. This new color consists of finely crushed remnants of Blizzard, CaesarStone’s best selling color. Starry Night rounds out an impressive roster of eight sustainable colors which were just approved by SCS, Scientific Certification System. A global leader in independent certification and verification of environmental and sustainable stewardship, SCS has developed internationally recognized standards and programs in its pursuit of the highest level of environmental performance and social accountability. CaesarStone is proud of SCS's confirmation that our sustainability stewardship accords with the highest environmental standards.

An industry pioneer and global leader, CaesarStone was the world’s first company to establish a new product genre in the industry. CaesarStone did so by harnessing the extraordinary physical properties of Quartz; one of nature’s strongest minerals, to create a unique and glamorous product – the Original Quartz Surface.

Since 1987 CaesarStone has been skillfully manufacturing high-quality Quartz surfaces with unparalleled customer service, ground breaking textures and colors.

When President of the company Arik Tendler brought Quartz to the US marketplace no one had heard of the surface. Convinced of its revolutionary properties a solo and determined Tendler drove back and forth across the United States convincing people of this new natural low maintenance high quality surface. He single handedly made CaesarStone the household name that it is today.

Throughout the years CaesarStone has instilled the same dedication Arik Tendler has into each and every employee. That is what separates CaesarStone from the rest: a belief and dedication to its product. CaesarStone can confidently say that their products are of the finest quality, are offered in the most fashion conscious color stories, with textures no other Quartz surface can offer and are resistant to heat, stains and scratches. And if you don’t believe them, the Residential Lifetime Warranty will change your mind.

CaesarStone understands how harmful manufacturing processes can be to the environment. With a plant on the sands of the Mediterranean Sea, the CaesarStone family values nature. CaesarStone believes that it is not only about the Recycled content, it’s about the company; and it is not only about the product, it’s about the process.

That is why you can rest assured that your CaesarStone countertop is low in VOC, because not only does the company steer clear of harmful sealers and adhesives, but they also use no-VOC binding agents. CaesarStone was awarded GREENGUARD certification for Schools as a result of this. CaesarStone surfaces are also completely mold and mildew resistant.  So not only are they a snap to clean with as little as soap and water, but they do not support the growth of bacteria and mold due to their non-porous properties. This led CaesarStone to earning a certification from NSF (National Sanitary Foundation) for food preparation areas.

With two state-of-the-art production sites and four fully automated production lines, CaesarStone has an annual capacity of over 20 million square feet of Quartz. CaesarStone utilizes cutting-edge techniques and the latest technologies available, doubling capacity and increasing the possibilities for technological advancement.

CaesarStone takes a continuous proactive approach to producing over 70 innovative colors and textures, consistently providing a premium Quartz surface with remarkable style and endurance - complementing any design application, from classic to contemporary. CaesarStone was most recently named the 12 most mentioned brands by designers and has earned the respected Good Housekeeping Seal from the Good Housekeeping Research Institute. CaesarStone is headquartered in Southern California with divisions in Los Angeles; San Francisco; San Diego; Seattle; Miami; New York and just recently Denver. CaesarStone is also proud to work with independent distributors across the country to meet the growing demand.

CaesarStone is pleased to be a part of your lives and will continue to strive towards excellence so that your home rises up to meet you. For more information about CaesarStone and its products, please visit the company’s website at http://www.caesarstoneus.com.
