LOTTE Advanced Materials Acquires Leading Engineered Stone Producer

With the acquisition of Belenco, Turkey’s leading manufacturer of engineered stone, LOTTE Advanced Materials increases production capacity for its Radianz quartz countertop brand. This acquisition significantly enhances LOTTE’s ability to manufacture and supply quartz surfaces on a global scale. Located in Turkey’s third-largest industrial complex, Manisa OIZ Industrial Park, the two production lines of the Belenco facility are capable of producing more than 230,000 slabs of engineered stone per year.

Belenco utilizes state-of-the-art, Breton manufacturing technology – a process that produces high-quality, technologically advanced engineered stone material for the building industry. LOTTE Advanced Materials has been a licensee of Breton technology since 2018, utilizing the process in the development of its new Radianz Cirrus Collection.

“Our goal is to be the worldwide leader in the manufacture and delivery of exceptional quartz surfaces, and the acquisition of Belenco represents a major milestone in achieving that objective,” said Dale Mandell, director of business development, LOTTE Advanced Materials USA, Inc. “LOTTE’s addition of Belenco’s capacity and technological expertise will benefit distributors, dealers, designers, and consumers for decades to come.”
