CaesarStone Opens Northern Calif. Office, Warehouse and Showroom to Satisfy State's Increasing Demands For Quartz Countertops

SUN VALLEY, Calif. (Jan. 2, 2006) — CaesarStone, the original manufacturer of quartz surfaces, is pleased to announce the opening of its second California office and warehouse in San Leandro on Jan. 16, 2006. The Sun Valley, Calif.-based company also recently opened a branch in New York last year. Already sold worldwide, this expansion will continue to secure CaesarStone as a leading provider of natural quartz surfaces.

The 60,000 square foot San Leandro facility features a state-of-the-art warehouse and corporate offices. In addition, an extensive showroom is set to open in April 2006, which will be open to consumers, as well as architects, interior designers and homebuilders. The showroom will display CaesarStone’s 50 colors of quartz surfaces and its eight varieties of Concetto, the first handcrafted surface made with real semi-precious stones. CaesarStone’s new office is located at 2500 Teagarden Street, Unit A, San Leandro, Calif. 94577. The phone number is 800.203.5774.

“When CaesarStone U.S. first opened in 1999, the Southern California office was able to handle the demand for quartz countertops throughout the state,” said Arik Tendler, president of CaesarStone. “However, the explosion of CaesarStone’s popularity has been phenomenal since that time. It was the natural next step to open the San Leandro office to give our Northern California customers the best service possible.”

CaesarStone quartz surfaces offer a unique mix of beauty and durability unmatched by any other surfacing material. CaesarStone quartz countertops resist heat and cold, mold and mildew, stains, chips and scratches. Ranging in price from $50 to $80 per square foot with installation, CaesarStone products are available through kitchen and bath showrooms, fabricators, architects, designers and builders.
