Bauformat launch a host of exciting new kitchen innovations that stand the test of time
2014 is set to be a year of celebration for Bauformat, with the leading German kitchen manufacturer toasting its 40 years in the UK, a Golden 'M' award and the UK launch of its "Schnell" range at KBB Birmingham. Visitors to the show will also have a unique preview of its new retail showroom concept - Cube Fashion, a 'shop within a shop' that offers a completely new consumer shopping experience of Bauformat products.
Developed and designed for retailers and the wider trade, Schnell is a versatile collection of 'made to order' German rigid kitchens available for express delivery within 10-15 working days. The aptly named "Schnell" range (meaning quick) offers retailers access to all Burger brand kitchens price group 1 and 2.
Perfect to satisfy any consumer or developers taste and budget; choose from 14 kitchen ranges, 60 door fronts (matt, gloss, silk matt finish), 70 handle options, 17 carcase colours and 50 worktop finishes with a rigid built direct factory delivery.
Bodie Kelay, Managing Director UK of Bauformat (pictured left with co-director Dave Taylor on the right), explained the benefits to us:
“A fantastic opportunity for retailers to take advantage of high quality German kitchens when time is of the essence,saving on labour costs and with the added reassurance you are receiving a complete ready to fit kitchen solution. Retailers and installers are getting an Audi for the price of a Ford Focus, furthermore installers will be working with cabinetry manufactured from premium density particle board, it's the material not the millimetres that stand the test of time!”
At KBB, Bauformat will showcase "Schnell" in collaboration with manufacturer Gorenje, recognised as the fastest growing appliance brand in the UK. The new range also offers handles pre-drilled from the factory and plinths with "tension clips" all incorporated within the unit price. Designed with the retailer and installer in mind, "Schnell" is a cost effective solution with Blum soft close drawers and factory finished repro cabinet side colours all as standard.
