Blum supports KBB installation by becoming BiKBBI corporate sponsor

The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom Installation (BiKBBI) has announced that global furniture fittings manufacturer Blum has become its latest corporate sponsor.

Blum, which was founded in 1952 in Austria, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of furniture fittings, with 12 plants and production sites globally, serving more than 120 countries via its network of 32 subsidiaries and representative offices. Known today for its innovative fittings for kitchens and living areas, Blum’s history also demonstrates the brand’s intrinsic commitment to education and development, taking on its first apprentice in 1958 and launching its own apprenticeship programme in 1970. Blum currently employs 400 apprentices worldwide across a number of technical professions.

Matthew Glanfield, technical manager at Blum UK, said: "We are excited to be returning to the BiKBBI – we believe this partnership will bring us closer to the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom industry, with a specific focus on fitters and installers. Fitters and installers are prominently in our minds. We have many solutions that can inspire, save time and improve accuracy. We also have a suite of services that can support during everyday work."

BiKBBI CEO, Damian Walters said: "As well as being an established business and innovator in our sector, Blum’s commitment to apprenticeships, training and the development of the future workforce is very closely aligned to BiKBBI’s purpose and strategic objectives. The work that we are doing across all areas of our strategy is fundamental to the future of the KBB installation sector and it is vital that we have the support of the wider industry. We are thrilled to add Blum to our growing list of brands."
