Saniflo roadshow boosts Kinedo sales
Saniflo UK, a leading designer and manufacturer of pumps, macerators and shower cubicles, says its 2016 'Building better bathrooms' roadshow has been so successful that it will take to the road again in 2017 visiting new venues with new products.
This year, the brand new, purpose-built roadshow truck took in 80 venues in England, Wales and Ireland from May through October with more than 600 installers and builders visiting the truck in England and Wales, and more than 220 installers visiting in Ireland. Those who attened, chatted with the Saniflo technical and sales teams who were on hand to answer questions and discuss how installers can improve their earnings by fitting Kinedo cubicles - often in just a couple of hours.
A direct result of the roadshow has been an increase in the number of Kinedo showroom displays being ordered, and excellent feedback from attendees including showroom and merchant staff who were taught how to build the Kinedo shower cubicles.
The sessions featured installation demonstrations of the Kinemagic Design shower cubicle and product showcases of the latest Kinemagic Serenity cubicle and a customisable Kineduo shower bath.
"We're delighted with the feedback and results of the Saniflo Building better bathrooms roadshow," says Ann Boardman, Saniflo UK customer services and marketing manager. "Our hands-on approach has led to a direct increase in showroom displays of the Kinedo shower cubicles.
"Visitors were able to see for themselves just what a valuable business proposition Kinedo shower cubicles offer. Industry professionals are realising that specifying Kinedo shower cubicles means they can boost their income whilst offering their customers a swift and hassle-free showering solution without the need for grout or silicone."
Plumb-It managing director Brian Cooper, who was also delighted with the Saniflo roadshow, comments: "The Saniflo roadshow has really helped to get installers on board with Kinedo shower cubicles and this is vital as they're the ones who have contact with the end user.
"I'm convinced that as more installers become aware of Kinedo shower cubicles and just how convenient they are, sales of the shower cubicles will continue to grow."
