Liebherr appliances now to be supplied directly to the UK trade
From the beginning of this year, new stocks of Liebherr appliances have only been available from Liebherr GB.
Products from the innovative and high-quality appliance manufacturer have previously only been available in the UK through distribution but now the company is serving the market directly from a new specialist division at its base at Liebherr GB's, 3.7 hectare site at Stratton Business Park, Biggleswade, in Bedfordshire.
Recognising the wealth of talent and experience in the previous team and to ensure continuity, the majority of that team have been welcomed into their new positions with Liebherr GB. The existing team will also now benefit from the staff and resources at Biggleswade which have been established for over 20 years.
Liebherr is determined to ensure that its trade customers and end users receive a seamless, dependable and ultimately improved service. Any customers using previous contact information will be redirected to ensure that all enquiries can be dealt with efficiently. Liebherr will also uphold warranties and liabilities to give customers and end users complete confidence.
The existing stock is currently being moved from its previous holdings and a new logistical infrastructure is being established. A further announcement will be released very shortly with additional information.
"This is a really exciting development for the company," says Lutz Weber, Regional Sales Manager, West and North Europe. Liebherr is a huge global brand and the formation of the new division at Liebherr GB to handle the company's appliances in the UK, will ensure that we have a greater measure of control of the brand and critically, the service that we provide will greatly improve.
"I would like to thank our retailers in advance for their patience through this period."
The company is located at Plant Nursery, Normandy Lane, Stratton Business Park, Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, SG18 8QB.
