What's Neue from Benchmarx?
Benchmarx Kitchens and Joinery, the trade-only supplier of high quality pre-assembled kitchens, has introduced a comprehensive new range of integrated cooking, washing and cooling appliances under the own-brand name, Neue.
Working in partnership with Electrolux, one of the world's best-known and trusted appliance manufacturers, Benchmarx has developed the brand to offer a competitively priced collection that combines quality and functionality with classic designs.
Including a built-in conventional single oven, double oven, built-in microwave, plus 60cm gas, ceramic and induction hobs and choice of cooker hoods, each of the appliances in the Neue cooking range have been designed to blend seamlessly with its kitchen furniture ranges.
As well as catering for cooking requirements, the range also includes a selection of integrated under counter fridges, 50:50 and 70:30 fridge freezers, together with an integrated washing machine and 45cm integrated dishwasher.
All Neue appliances have been manufactured using the latest energy efficient technologies to the highest standards, and every product in the collection is available with the added assurance of a one year parts and labour guarantee.
In keeping with its 'saving the trade time and money' proposition, Benchmarx holds the entire range of Neue appliances in stock at each of its 85 branches around the UK, making it quick and easy for the trade to either collect or have delivered to site.
"We have just completed a year-long project to improve all aspects of the business to make it easier for the trade to do business with Benchmarx and to help them with their own businesses at the same time," explains Managing Director of Benchmarx Kitchens and Joinery, Chris Larkin.
"Having taken a good, better, best approach to rationalising the entire kitchen furniture and accessories collection, which Benchmarx has just relaunched, we wanted to offer the trade the best possible quality and value for money when it came to appliances too. The Neue collection was therefore developed to sit alongside other well-known brand names like Zanussi and AEG to provide the trade with a competitively priced option but without any compromise on looks or performance."
Full details of all appliances available in the collection can be found in a new kitchen brochure, which builders and installers can use as a sales tool when selling the complete kitchen package to end-consumers. A trade price list and technical guide have also been produced and a social housing brochure is now available for those working on larger projects with more specific requirements.
Benchmarx Kitchens and Joinery was established in London in 2006. It is a trade only 'one-stop-shop' specialist outlet supplying kitchens and joinery products to all sizes of businesses - from specialist joiners through to local authorities and national housebuilders. As a member of the Travis Perkins, Benchmarx is also part of a group of leading companies operating in the builders' merchant and home improvement markets in the UK.
