Hansgrohe is latest brand to become BiKBBI corporate sponsor

The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom Installation (BiKBBI) has announced Hansgrohe as the latest KBB brand to become a corporate sponsor of the institute. With its brands AXOR and Hansgrohe, the Hansgrohe Group, a family business founded in the Black Forest, Germany in 1901, is known for its high-quality products. In 1990 the Hansgrohe Group founded the UK subsidiary which currently employs around 90 staff in the office and in the field, and recently invested more than £5m into its UK business.

Julie McLean, marketing director for Hansgrohe UK, pictured, said: “The UK KBB installation sector is vital to manufacturers like us. That’s why so many of our product innovations are linked to benefits for installers – from our spare parts guarantee to ‘fit and forget’ designs that help ensure a quality finish and longevity for their customers. We are therefore delighted to support BiKBBI in its important work championing installers, retailers and the KBB industry, and the significant contribution they play in the wider economy.”

BiKBBI CEO, Damian Walters, said: "It is vital that we collaborate with the wider industry, so to start 2024 by welcoming Hansgrohe, a much-respected business and brand, on board as a corporate sponsor is a real highlight for our organisation. It is also a significant step in our quest to garner support from more manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and retailers, all of whom are reliant on installation at some point in the cycle, as we work towards closing the communications gap, improving the skills shortage and ultimately building a sustainable workforce.

"We are thrilled to have Hansgrohe supporting the work that we are doing to drive positive change in the KBB installation sector and very much look forward to working with the team and supporting them as they embark on an exciting phase within their business."
