Product innovation is one of our strategic objectives. Our builder customers demand the right amount of the best product, at the best price and therefore constant investment in new product is critical to our offer. Our disciplined range management balances the benefits of having new product with the costs of managing it through its lifecycle.
As the UK’s number 1 trade kitchen supplier* we provide everything our customers need to complete their kitchen jobs, including worktops, sinks and taps, flooring, appliances, and handles. All our cabinets are manufactured in the UK from sustainable
FSC® and PEFC™ certified materials and carry a 25-year guarantee.
In 2022, we introduced 21 new kitchen ranges with an emphasis on higher priced kitchens and a drive to ensure our most popular colours and kitchen styles were made accessible to all budgets.
We were granted a Royal Warrant by Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen as a supplier of fitted kitchens in 2015.
