Davroc has announced a new strategic partnership for nationwide distribution of the full Carron Bathrooms range. The distributor says the two family-run companies have a shared desire to form a long-term partnership and have been in negotiations for the last six months to ensure a smooth launch and transition process. Their new agreement will allow them to continue offering products to both existing Carron customers, and those within the Davroc customer base.
Davroc has been in the bathroom distribution and manufacturing industry since 1980, and currently distributes a number of well-known brands including Laufen, Bette, Roca, Aqualisa, Grohe, VitrA and more recently Alca and Drench. It has also recently launched the Coalbrook brand. Carron is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of acrylic baths, based in Falkirk, Scotland.
Distribution by Davroc is due to commence from early December, with fast-moving product lines already in stock across its three warehouse and distribution centres in the UK. Davroc’s fleet of 36 vans and drivers mean they are able to offer next-day delivery service to the majority of the UK without the use of couriers or agencies. In order to fully support the brand, Davroc has recruited an additional 17 team members within its office and distribution functions and is in the process of adding six more external sales managers to bring external representation to 18 nationwide.
Davroc MD Chris Dodds, pictured right, said: “As a business, our partners are very important to us both in terms of their product, culture and most importantly their values. We have been in discussions with Carron for six months and we believe we have found a long-term partner who shares our goals of product quality and service. We are delighted to add Carron to our portfolio and look forward to working with James and the Carron team.”

With a commitment to offering the optimum customer experience in the professional bathroom sector, Davroc undoubtedly share the same goals as Carron. We are excited to be involved with such a respected partner and look forward to working with Chris and the team at Davroc”
