BiKBBI welcomes Wilsonart's sponsorship
The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation, tells us that Wilsonart is the latest business to demonstrate its faith in the credo of the BiKBBI by becoming a sponsor with immediate effect.
Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces is a world leading manufacturing and distribution organisation that has been designing and developing decorative surfacing solutions for 60 years.
With its headquarters in Austin, Texas, it manufactures and distributes high-pressure laminate, Quartz, solid-surface and other engineered surface options for use in residential and commercial spaces across multiple applications, including kitchen worktops, furniture and wall panelling to name a few.
Its two UK based business units Wilsonart UK and Bushboard, specialise in creating beautiful surfaces for both domestic and commercial projects, from its signature materials solid surface, laminate and the newly launched Zenith solid laminate.
The company feels that its product range, whether applied for worktops, breakfast bars, splashbacks and upstands for the kitchen or for engineering the best solid surface solutions for a whole multitude of commercial applications, is manufactured with genuine passion.
Speaking on behalf of Wisonart UK, Nick Jones, head of UK sales says: "We are delighted to
sponsor the BiKBBI, the opportunity that it presents is tremendous. Having been inspired by?
Damian Walters, we have no hesitation in becoming a member of BiKBBI and look forward to contributing to the continued development and professionalisation of the K&B market.
"Installing solid-surface materials in a domestic environment is not a task for the unskilled and therefore developing closer working ties with accredited BiKBBI installers, including training and sharing of information will create a 'win-win' scenario for us all."
Damian Walters says on behalf of the institute: "I'm thrilled to welcome such a prestigious
company to the BiKBBI by way of sponsorship and it's a fantastic endorsement of the market acceptance of our organisation and its membership.
"We look forward to jointly creating new and exciting training and development opportunities for our members with the Wilsonart UK team."
The BiKBBI represents over 4,500 installation businesses across the UK, as well as a number of KBB retailers, manufacturers and distributors of KBB products. The organisation launched in 2006, is Secretary of State sanctioned and not-for-profit registered. It is responsible for education, standards and the support of business that operate within the KBB installation sector, whilst supporting consumers with free guidance and access to business that have been independently accredited.
