The Kronoswiss Showbus is coming to an IDS branch near you!
The Kronowiss Showbus is making a return trip to the UK and will be visiting all of IDS's 12 regional branches for open days between the 23rd May and 14th June. The tour is designed to give IDS's several thousand customers across the furniture, retail shopfitting and specification sectors, access to the Kronoswiss quality experience by bringing the pop-up exhibition within easy reach.
IDS has been the exclusive distribution partner for Kronoswiss for 32 years, a company widely acknowledged as the world's leading brand of wood based panel products based on Swiss-made quality, design innovation and first class environmental credentials.
The Showbus is expertly kitted out to promote the depth and breadth of Kronoswiss's Panorama Collection which includes flooring, MFC, MFMDF, laminates and edging tapes, all of which are available in 300 design and colour choices. New products will be strongly showcased too which include SwissCDF, a range of compact density fibreboard; the LB07 range of pre-laminated board and the upcoming in MFC with synchronised texture printing which is due to be launched in May.
IDS will be hosting open days from 08.30 to 16.00 at all 12 of its branch locations across the UK. The Showbus will be parked for the day in the company's car park, enabling customers to drop by and experience the full Kronoswiss offer first hand and chat with the local sales team. Refreshments will be available. Dedicated visits to key furniture manufacturers are also being arranged, allowing the flexibility for multiple staff to visit the Showbus without disruption to the working day.
Says Andy Ransom, purchasing manager for panel products at IDS:
"The Showbus travels non-stop across Europe and is always in high demand so we are delighted to secure it for a UK tour and give our customers this opportunity to see the full Kronoswiss offer at first hand. We know our customers' time is a very valuable commodity, now more than ever, but an hour spent on the Showbus, is a very effective way of seeing and learning about products new and old and how they can be beneficial to their business.
"There are some clever new product developments coming through now that means we can offer customers ways to increase production, value engineer, minimise wastage and enhance their offering. It's well worth a visit."
