A 'bluming' fantastic two-day event for Burbidge premium partners
In a true meeting of minds, KBB industry giants Burbidge and Blum join forces to launch a very special two-day event recently, for a select group of Burbidge Premium Partners.
The Premium Partners spent the first day at Blum's impressive HQ in Milton Keynes where they were able to immerse themselves in the fittings manufacturer's state of the art facilities. Key topics covered included product innovation, technology and the company's brand heritage.
Next, attendees headed off to Coventry for an overnight stay and dinner hosted by Burbidge, followed by an action-packed day of training. This included a tour of Burbidge's impressive manufacturing facilities during which customers were asked to take part in a lighthearted 'Factory Skills Challenge' where they got the chance to try their hand at various manufacturing processes.
Retailers were also given detailed training and were made privy to the latest kitchen range - handleless Otto, which was showcased in the most recent laminate finish and colours - Dark Walnut and Concrete mixed with Light Grey Matt.
Ben Burbidge, managing director at Burbidge comments: "We are delighted that our first collaboration with Blum for our training day was such a success with our Premium Partners, with 16 turning out in total. The feedback so far has been fantastic.
"We strongly believe in building solid productive relationships with our Premium Partners and this was a great networking opportunity as well as a training session.
"Having worked closely with Blum for two years, we thought it would be a perfect opportunity to host a two-day event to show retailers our unique Burbidge and Blum offers.
"It was a great two-day event had by all, we are delighted with the turnout and are looking to revisit in the future."
