The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation (BiBKI) has announce MHK-UK as its latest corporate sponsor of 2023. MHK-UK is part of the MHK Group, Europe’s buying group for independent kitchen, bathroom and bedroom retailers. The group is also a specialist for the sanitary, heating, and air-conditioning sectors, as well as supplying medium-sized businesses in the painting and building trades.
Marcel Crezee, director Export MHK Group and MD of MHK-UK, pictured, commented: "The MHK Group recognises the importance of installations and the role that this area of the sector plays in the success of our business. As MHK-UK continues to grow its network of independent KBB retailers, it’s important that we support the installations sector and work alongside BiKBBI to help solve the skills shortage, improve education and training, and ultimately build a sustainable workforce that all KBB businesses will benefit from."
BiKBBI CEO, Damian Walters, said: "BiKBBI’s network of corporate sponsors continues to grow and 2023 has seen a record number of manufacturer, supplier and distributor brands committing to support the vital work we are doing to drive positive change in the sector. To welcome MHK UK onboard as a corporate sponsor is significant not only for us as an organisation but because it is a testament to just how important the installation workforce is the whole KBB industry. The work that the MHK Group does via their academy facility in Germany is a leading example of how the UK should be approaching education and training and we are very excited at the prospect of working with MHK UK the development of our plans on education."
