Appliance manufacturer Fisher & Paykel has become the latest corporate member of the Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialist Association, KBSA. Fisher & Paykel is the third new corporate member to be announced in the last three months. Prokitchen-EU and Interisoft Ltd both joined in December 2013.
Fisher & Paykel has been designing products since 1934 and is now a global company operating in 50 countries. Its product range includes the iconic DishDrawer as well as other built in and freestanding cooking appliances, fridges and freezers.
Rakesh Tiwari, Fisher & Paykel's General Manager UK & Europe says: "We are delighted to join the ranks of other major brands in supporting the KBB industry with our membership of the KBSA.
"The KBSA is a fantastic vehicle for engaging with the kind of quality retailer that shares the Fisher & Paykel commitment to professionalism and quality.
KBSA CEO Graham Ball add: "It is always a pleasure to welcome new members and we are delighted that such a high profile and well respected company has chosen to join our ranks."
The KBSA is a national trade association founded 30 years ago to promote excellence within the interiors industry and champion consumer protection. It now boasts more than 300 retail members throughout the UK.
KBSA members are dedicated to upholding the association's high standards of design, supply, installation and customer service throughout the interiors industry. All members are carefully vetted prior to admission and they must have been trading for at least two years in order to be considered for membership. All members offer ConsumerCare deposit protection or ConsumerCare Plus, which protects the consumer from payment of the deposit to completion of the contract and includes an insurance backed warranty.
In addition, all members are subject to regular monitoring of their businesses to ensure levels of quality are continually maintained.
