And they keep on coming!
Two more companies have just joined The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation as Corporate Sponsors: Showerwall and French company, Dassault Systèmes.
Says Steph Harris (pictured, left), product manager for Showerwall: "As a brand we're committed to quality and professionalism and this is reflected across the depth and breadth of our product range and at every step of the customer journey.
"The new partnership with BiKBBI will help us to embed installation standards and recognises the important role that installers play in maintaining Showerwall's brand values. It will provide end consumers with extra peace of mind of a high-quality bathroom wall-panelling product that is backed by the assurance of a 15-year guarantee."
The product to which Steph refers is a versatile and easy to fit, 100% waterproof bathroom wall panelling system backed by a guarantee of up to 15 years when installed according to manufacturer's instructions. Its sophisticated and versatile nature-inspired collections embrace innovation and the latest trends.
Speaking on behalf of the BiKBBI, communications manager Anna-Marie Belton says: "Showerwall is a highly recognisable brand and the nature of the product, being quick and comparatively inexpensive to install, has perfect synergy with our membership. We look forward to working with the company over the months and years ahead."
Dassault Systèmes' sponsorship has coincided with the introduction of its HomeByMe for Kitchen Retailers application, an easy-to-use 3D planning solution.
This interactive 3D room planning experience, dedicated to kitchen retailers and their customers, combines 3D digital space planning, automation and intelligence in one solution to engage consumers in a seamless omnichannel design process that improves retailer business.
Speaking on behalf of Dassault Systèmes, Simon Booker (pictured, right), VP sales & marketing 3DVIA, comments: "These are really exciting times for our business. We are looking to expand our reach in the UK and our sponsorship of the BiKBBI helps facilitate our objective as it gives us an opportunity to communicate with the institute's unique family of KBB installers, retailers and manufacturers.
BiKBBI CEO Damian Walters says of this French signing: "We are delighted to welcome Dassault Systèmes to the Institute and our partnership with the company underlines the diversity of our supporting sponsors. We look forward to sharing a long and mutually beneficial relationship."
