Neolith is creating a fourth production line to meet the rapid increase in global demand for the brand’s sintered stone surfaces. The new line, based at Neolith’s HQ in Castellon, Spain, will commence operation in early 2018 and will almost double production capabilities, focusing on 3mm and 6mm thicknesses in 3,600 by 1,200mm, 3,200 by 1,500mm, 2,600 by 1,200mm, and 2,600 by 1,500mm. It will also increase energy efficiency in the manufacturing process.
The fourth line, which incorporates a ground-breaking two storey kiln, is result of continual investment into R&D. In 2017 TheSize, Neolith’s manufacturer, achieves sales of over €100 million .
Neolith’s Mar Esteve Cortes comments: “A fourth production line is a hugely significant step for us. Not only is it a reflection of the brand’s rapid growth over the last two years, but it positions us to exponentially expand our share within this highly-competitive sector. We are now the only company in our sector to have five kilns fully devoted to Sintered Stone. This offers us essential flexibility to deal with more short-lead enquiries, and guarantees the capacity to deliver a larger number of confirmed projects.
“Furthermore, with four new surfaces, two new finishes and 15 further 20mm slabs introduced for 2018, this new line ensures we can process the large variety of colour-specific order processed at any one time.”
