Two new distributors for Franke
Kitchen specialist, Franke, has recently appointed two new distributors - Leaker Direct and Cooper Callas. Both distributors offer Franke's full range of sinks, taps, hoods and kitchen solutions, and Franke is confident that both companies will deliver high service to meet the exacting standards of Franke.
Leaker Direct is Scotland's largest independent appliance distributor, and the company is a one stop shop for all kitchen appliance and accessory needs.
National Distributor, Cooper Callas, has five branches located in Bicester, Glasgow, Leeds, Crawley and Newton Abbot. The company thought to be the largest independently owned bathroom and kitchen distributor in the UK.
"The appointment of Leaker Direct in Scotland cements our presence there and can only help to grow our customer and display base in this region," explains David Houghton, Commercial Director at Franke UK. "Cooper Callas, as a National Distributor, which has traditionally had a large merchant customer base, brings to Franke more UK wide distributor coverage, but more importantly access to a base of customers, who we believe would not normally have access to or purchase Franke.
"It gives me great pleasure in welcoming these two new business partners to the family and I know that everybody at Franke UK would like to join me in wishing them both great success in the coming years."
