KBB design software producer ArtiCAD has announced that Hoover Candy has joined its Supplier Partnership Programme, which will enable designers who use ArtiCAD-Pro to have access to a selection of the appliance manufacturer's portfolio of products for their kitchen designs.
Dan Halfpenney, head of kitchen independents & trade distribution at Hoover Candy, said: “We sell primarily via distributors but the majority of kitchen specialists, who in turn buy from these distributors, are using the ArtiCAD-Pro software for their design needs. We are keen to become more visible to these types of organisations and be able to present our products to them. Working with ArtiCAD in their Supplier Partnership Programme seems to be an ideal communications route.
“Initially, we will have some 20 Candy and 30 Hoover products in the new graphics catalogue – predominantly hoods, ovens and hobs, with the aim of enabling designers to browse through detailed images, and then select specific products for their designs.”
