iKBBI & TFO announce strategic collaboration
In what will be the first of two exciting announcements over the next few weeks, The Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installers announced this week a strategic collaboration with The Furniture Ombudsman - the independent and non-profit-making dispute resolution service dedicated to the furniture industry.
The initiative will include vital development work around definition of independent installation standards within the KBB sector, a key objective that sits firmly with the iKBBI, supported by its members and key organisations that operate within the industry.
Furthermore, the iKBBI will work closely with the TFO on the subject of independent inspection, providing a national network of field based inspectors, specialist in the subject of on-site KBB dispute resolution. This will open up exciting opportunities for the iKBBI and its members and will pave the way for greater protection for the consumer.
TFO Chief Executive Kevin Grix (pictured) says: "We're delighted to be working with the iKBBI and look forward to exploring long term opportunities in addition to short-term quick-wins."
The iKBBI welcomes interest from anyone interested in finding out more about becoming an inspector - The iKBBI will be contacting members later this week to invite applications from within.
