Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens, the nation’s premier stainless outdoor kitchen manufacturer, today announced a new strategic alliance with Dekton, the innovative new line of ultra-compact surface with advanced technical properties for exterior design by Cosentino, the leading manufacturer of quartz, natural stone and architectural surfaces. The alliance was launched at this year’s Fall High Point Market that took place October 18-23, 2014.
Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens will specify Dekton as part of its countertop selection process. In addition, national Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchen representatives will participate in a training session to learn about creating and offering designs focused on color combinations and performance for the combined products.
The combination of Dekton countertops and Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens’ stainless-steel cabinetry will grant even more design possibilities for homeowners who want to create a luxurious backyard haven that can be utilized for entertaining or quiet get-togethers.
“We are excited to be partnering with Cosentino on this venture. Dekton is cutting-edge and will revolutionize the concept of bringing indoor styles to the outdoors,” says Mitch Slater, president of Danver, exclusive licensee of Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens. “This unique alliance brings together two high-end manufacturers and products to create outdoor kitchens for upscale marketplaces.”
The Dekton surface is made from a sophisticated blend of glass, porcelain and quartz and offers UV resistance for color stability outdoors, exceptional strength and high resistance to impacts, scratches and abrasion for use in high-traffic areas, and very low water absorption. Dekton’s resistance to thermal shock against heat, frost and thawing enables the product to be used in any climate and a multitude of outdoor applications.
“Cosentino is thrilled to join forces with Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens in creating beautiful outdoor spaces. Our products complement each other in both performance and aesthetics, making the partnership a natural alliance and the perfect combination for outdoor kitchen design,” says Lorenzo Marquez, vice president of Marketing for Cosentino North America.
Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens displays will be featured at most Cosentino showrooms in the United States and Canada. Both companies will collaborate on co-branded marketing activities focused on promoting outdoor living, which may include events, tradeshows, print and digital campaigns.
