Ideal Standard become latest BiKBBI Corporate Sponsor
British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation chief executive Damian Walters has this week confirmed that Ideal Standard is the latest big industry brand to join the organisation as Corporate Sponsor, adding to an ever-expanding group of high profile manufacturers who support positive change within the KBB installation sector.
Ideal Standard is a leading manufacturer of residential, commercial and healthcare bathroom solutions and the premier brands within its group also includes Sottini and Armitage Shanks, which celebrates its 200th anniversary this year.
"Continuing what has unarguably been a great year for us, we're thrilled that Ideal Standard has chosen to support the objectives of our organisation," says Damien.
"Ideal Standard is very much a deep-rooted and respected brand in the UK and we're delighted that they are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with us, developing installation standards and supporting those professionals who represent the industry from the front."
The sponsorship will see Ideal Standard connect with BiKBBI members, including offering access to installer training and development opportunities, products and services, technical support and networking.
Katie Cope, marketing director UK Cluster, says: "Ideal Standard has championed innovation and quality throughout its history and continues to look to the future, combining our vast experience and excellent reputation, to continue to develop industry-leading new products.
"As a business we consider professionals, particularly installers, as being at the heart of the industry - and are continually looking for ways in which we can work more closely with the people who use and fit our products, utilising their expertise to add to our own with the end goal of ensuring our latest solutions meet and exceed their needs.
"With that in mind, our partnership with a well-respected industry body like BiKBBI is a natural fit for us and we look forward to working alongside the organisation to make our sector the best it can be and continue to lead on innovation."
