Häfele UK has revealed the finalists of its sixth annual Studio Partner Awards. The event, which celebrates innovative design, business excellence and customer experience within the manufacturer and distributor’s network of independent kitchen showrooms, will take place on 23rd June 2022 at the Cutty Sark, London where the overall winners will be announced.
Häfele Studio Partner programme is a network of independent kitchen studios, hand-selected based on their customer service, business excellence and growth. Companies in the programme receive marketing and sales support, including lead generation plus discounts and training.
In the coveted Studio Partner of the Year category, HBC Kitchens, Ironbridge Interiors, Kettle Co and Roma Interiors have been selected as this year’s finalists in recognition of their commitment to the Häfele UK partner programme. In a new category for this year’s event, Best Functional Space Design, Häfele UK has shortlisted three businesses that have demonstrated ingenious space-saving solutions to meet a customer’s challenge. Alexander Paul Kitchens, Duncans of Grantown and Hugo & Co are in the running to be the award’s first recipient.
“The past few years have been some of the most challenging for our studio partners but the level of dedication to supporting our partnership and commitment to customer service and quality haven’t faltered,” said Gareth Bevan, sales director at Häfele UK. “We can’t wait to get so many of our studio partners together for the first time since 2019 and celebrate their truly exceptional work.”
