Hippo extends sponsorship of the iKBBI for a further three years
The Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installers confirmed this week that national waste logistics company Hippo has extended its corporate sponsorship of the Institute for a further three years.
Hippo is a highly innovative and market leading waste solutions provider which has actively supported the iKBBI for many years alongside the provision of a highly flexible service to its members.
Hippo managing director Gareth Lloyd-Jones commented on the announcement by saying:
"We are delighted to have extended our sponsorship with the iKBBI and continue to assist them in their drive to support members of the KBB industry. We are particularly excited by their commitment to improve education, service and standards within their sector."
iKBBI CEO Damian Walters added: "Sponsorship plays a key role at the iKBBI. The income generated is invested directly into the various exciting initiatives we're working on here, including our own commitment to apprenticeships and learning opportunities for industry professionals.
"We are incredibly proud to be aligned with great industry brands, especially Hippo. Their environmental policies and recycling rates are impressive, as is their customer satisfaction rate, which remains consistently high, even throughout impressive company growth. Their commitment to the provision of a branded, service focused waste solution within our industry is impressive and demonstrates that they truly understand the needs of the KBB sector."
Hippo, creator of the innovative yellow HippoBag, caters for the waste removal needs of a huge range of industries, from facilities management to building and construction. The business currently works with a number of KBB retailers, including iKBBI Installation Standards Partner John Lewis.
The iKBBI will continue to support HippoTrade, which is Hippo's tailored service for professional tradespeople.
The Institute will be further communicating the commercial benefits to its members over the coming weeks.
