The lean manufacturing team wanted to reposition Cosentino as a leader in innovative surfaces for architecture and design from the shop floor. especially in the implementation of the lean manufacturing philosophy across all their locations.
Today, the Cantoria plant in Spain with more than 2000 employees is the pilot plant that implemented a solution to manage the shop floor by connecting people with industrial processes.
