Neolith Expands Global Production
Neolith, manufactured by Spain-based company TheSize, continues its global expansion with several key initiatives in 2018. Plans for this year include an added production line, showroom openings, and a new logistics warehouse. The company aims to enhance support of the brand’s network of distributors, architects, designers and fabricators.
Neolith’s steady increase in sales and visibility in 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.
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.
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 European markets. The warehouse’s proximity to shipping ports and to the high concentration of distributors throughout Western Europe provides a logistics advantage. 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.
