KBBG Announces Unique Partnership With Combined Independents (Holdings) Ltd

The Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group (KBBG) has partnered with Combined Independents (Holdings) Ltd. (CIH), to offer CIH members a tremendous business opportunity in fitted kitchens and facilitate the expansion of their independent business.

Through this exclusive partnership, KBBG has assembled a comprehensive kitchen sales support package for CIH members. Members will receive kitchen design training from the highly respected, industry professional, Renee Mascari, Creative Director of Mascari Design, Nottingham, and will be provided with a kitchen CAD system from Compusoft Winner.

CIH members will also be supported with a warehouse and delivery service, plus assistance in sourcing approved, local, kitchen installers. This unique support package will provide all of the necessary tools, which will enable CIH members to successfully and confidently retail fitted kitchens.

KBBG is the UK’s leading kitchen and bathroom buying group and it is part of DER KREIS, which has over 38 years of experience. CIH members will gain access to tremendous buying advantages from a variety of kitchen suppliers from around the UK and Europe.

Bill Miller, Managing Director, KBBG, says: “The partnership with CIH is a natural fit with KBBG, as we share the same business ethos of supporting independent retailers. We offer a range of unique benefits and services to support and increase the success of independent retailers. This is now extended to CIH members who, like KBBG members, can now have access to the very best buying conditions and on-going support and advice.

“Our objective is very simple; to create a strong and sustainable independent channel, to ensure retailers achieve their full business potential. The independent market, for both kitchen specialists and electrical retailers, has had to face a huge number of challenges over the last five years. There is strength, and greater protection, in working together.”

Stuart Cook, Chief Executive, Combined Independents (Holdings) Ltd says: “The partnership with KBBG is a great opportunity enabling our members to expand their businesses and retail fitted kitchens.

“We provide our members with a variety of electrical appliances and now, thanks to the KBBG, we can provide CIH members with furniture to complete the kitchen for their customers and become a one-stop shop. The independent electrical retail market can be challenging and we are thrilled to be able to strengthen our offering to our members.”
