Quartz Countertop Brands Manufacturers Comparison

Category: Stone Knowledge Updated: 2023/11/1 Views  Views: 66       Likes  Likes: 4

There are several different quartz manufacturers to choose from. Listed here are a few of the leading brands.

Cambria

Cambria is a privately held Minnesota-based company that began as a dairy business in 1936. Having entered the quartz countertop industry in 2000, Cambria is a relative newcomer. Within one year, Cambria had opened a 150,000 square foot factory in Le Sueur, Minnesota, and within five years it had already tripled the size of that plant.

The only American company in the quartz surfaces business, Cambria offers a wide range of designs, colors, edges, and slab sizes. However, Cambria is unusual in that it cannot be purchased at big box home improvement stores. It can only be found at kitchen and bath dealers or purchased through builders, architects, and designers.

Caesarstone

Formed in 1987, Caesarstone calls itself 'the original quartz surface manufacturer.' A publicly-traded company headquartered in Israel, Caesarstone has a factory at the Kibbutz Sdot Yam and another in the Bar-Lev Industrial Zone. Caesarstone was developed by the kibbutz as a way to replace its failing terrazzo tile industry.

Caesarstone is known for pushing the design envelope. Its Concetto Collection includes 10 surfaces that incorporate semi-precious stones such as agate, dumortierite, tiger's eye, and even petrified wood. Its Motivo Collection offers deep embossing in crocodile skin and lace textures.

Silestone

Based in Almeria, Spain, Silestone is the flagship quartz brand of Italian company Cosentino. If Caesarstone is known for its natural stone-like appearance, Silestone's distinguishing factor is its vibrant solid colors. It's Life!, Stellar, Mythology, and Zen series offer bold, bright oranges, greens, reds, and blues that are not found with other brands.

Silestone is not just limited to countertop and backsplash materials. Matching Silestone designs are available in sinks, vanities, and shower pans. Silestone offers a robust 25-year limited warranty that is transferable to subsequent owners and includes no pro-rata limitations.
