Abacus designs and fits new showroom for G H Brooks
Three years ago family-run builders' merchant, G H Brooks, decided to refurbish its 2,500 sq ft tile showroom to include bathrooms. A strong product range with good displays was key so the Harrogate-based firm turned to Abacus Manufacturing Group to create the displays and to be its main supplier of bathroom products.
Working with G H Brooks, the Abacus team undertook the design, installation and fit-out of 10 different displays within the showroom. These were arranged to show the widest range of bathroom and shower products, including wet rooms, first and second fix solutions, sanitaryware, tiles, brassware and towel rails.
As a leading manufacturer and specialist distributor of bathroom and heating products to merchants and retailers, Abacus offers innovative and design-led products that include most of the components for a bathroom. This means that the displays provide an impressive range of options for customers to consider when visiting the showroom. As a result, around 80% of each bathroom that G H Brooks sells is composed of Abacus products.
The Abacus product range embraces contemporary solutions such as easi-plan sanitaryware installation frames and Lustrolite high gloss wall panelling, together with Ben de Lisi designer room concepts and impressive ranges of shower screens, brassware, sanitaryware and accessories from Vessini.
Andrew Broadwith, director G H Brooks, comments: "We were first attracted to Abacus because of the 21st century solutions they offer. They're efficient and very, very helpful. As an independent company, Abacus provides an excellent level of service that sometimes goes way beyond what would be expected from one of the big nationals. We can always talk to them and they'll just pop in and check that everything is going alright and that we're happy."
