Lakes hosts Fortis buying group at HQ
Lakes, a leading manufacturer of showering spaces, recently hosted Fortis merchant buying group at its HQ in Tewkesbury for its annual board meeting. The visit included a tour of Lakes' newly refurbished showroom, which now displays Lakes' new Bay series and Lakes Stone shower trays launched earlier this year.
The revamped showroom also reflects Lakes' new branding, look and messaging for a sharp and contemporary finish.
Lakes' internal sales team demonstrated the new products to the Fortis board in the spacious area, answered questions and held a discussion.
"It was a pleasure to host Fortis at our HQ," says Lakes' sales & marketing director Mike Tattam. "We have a strong relationship with its members and the board. It was a good opportunity to introduce them to more of our team and demonstrate our range and innovations in a relaxed environment. "
"Our office includes spacious meeting and showroom facilities, which are open to our merchant and stockist customers by prior arrangement."
If customers would like to visit Lakes' new showroom or find out more about booking the company's board room for group meetings, call the sales team on 01684 853870 or speak to your area sales manager.
Lakes sells its showering spaces, (including doors and bath screens) exclusively through builders' and plumbers' merchants, and retail bathroom stockists.
Established in 1986, the family business has built a strong reputation for first-class customer service, speed of delivery, and supplying innovative solutions. Its products range from timeless classics to contemporary designs catering for all market requirements. Innovations include Lakes' optically superior PureVueHD glass and AllClear stay-clean coating.
PureVueHD glass was introduced with low iron content to remove the green hue found in standard glass, ensuring clearer, lighter and brighter glass. AllClear is a protective coating applied to both sides of the glass so Lakes' products stay looking great, for longer and with minimal effort. Uniquely, both innovations are available as standard across Lakes' Island, Coastline and Classic Collections.
