Mereway joins the Articad supplier partnership
CAD specialist for the KBB sector, ArtiCAD, has announced that Mereway has joined the company's thriving Supplier Partnership Programme. The full range of Mereway's kitchen cabinets, encompassing over 70 different finishes, including MFC, foil-wrapped, veneer, solid wood and painted finishes in slab, shaker and curved door styles, are now available as a comprehensive and easy to search graphics catalogue within ArtiCAD-Pro.
Mereway is one of the UK's leading kitchen manufacturers whose products are supplied throughout the country via a network of independent retailers. The company's brands include such well known ranges as Wentworth, Cucina Colore and English Revival.
Over the years, the company has worked with various CAD suppliers, but late in 2010 the results of research undertaken with Mereway's retailers revealed some interesting data. Ginette Crowther, Group Marketing Manager, Mereway, explains: "Amongst other findings, the research showed a strong representation for ArtiCAD-Pro as the CAD system favoured by our retailers. As part of our ongoing commitment to support our dealers by being as flexible and responsive as possible, we have become a member of the ArtiCAD Supplier Partnership.
"We have seen a sharp uptake in the role which technology plays within kitchen businesses. The long term future for a partnership such as that between Mereway and ArtiCAD is key. We want our products to be at our kitchen retailers' fingertips, putting Mereway at an advantage within the market and helping to establish us as the supplier of choice. Working with a CAD supplier, like ArtiCAD, strengthens our proposal to retailers even more."
