KBBG supports the institute
The Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group, part of Europe's leading kitchen and bathroom buying group Der Kreis, is sponsoring the British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation.
The sponsorship will give KBBG members access to the Institute's approved installers, affording them an excellent new resource to better manage kitchen installations and make them more cost-effective.
"It is a great pleasure and a superb opportunity to support an organisation that promotes and improves standards in our industry," says Bill Miller (pictured), managing director, KBBG.
"Our business is focused solely on the independent kitchen specialist retailer, and this sponsorship creates a very positive connection for the benefit of our members. We hope that by working together this will help make life easier with the benefit of managing time and costs successfully.
"The KBBG has been established in the UK for six years and the membership numbers are growing at an exponential rate every year. With the buying power of over 3,000 members this creates a serious collaborative trading benefit that the group is able to provide and the sponsorship of the BiKBBI gives our members another tremendous benefit and endorsement of the business."
Damian Walters, CEO, BiKBBI explains: "The sponsorship by KBBG is a great addition and will allow member retailers to signpost customers to a robust installation service, which is either delivered by the retailers own approved installers, the wider BiKBBI membership or a mixture of both.
"Essentially, the service takes the retailer out of the contractual equation, connecting consumers with installers nationally, creating a robust direct legal relationship, to include contracts, schedules, pricing and payments."
