The first annual members’ meeting for the Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group (KBBG), the UK arm of DER KREIS buying group, was hosted this month by Nobilia.
Following a chartered flight to Germany, members enjoyed an evening meal and overnight stay at the Lind Hotel in the picturesque and historic town of Reitberg. The following day, members visited Nobilia, the largest kitchen manufacturer in the world.
While touring the excellent showroom and production facility, KBBG members had an exclusive preview of the new Vivari furniture ranges, due to launch in forthcoming months. Members attending the meeting were also offered an exclusive Vivari display offer, as part of the group’s dedication to provide better margins and improved buying conditions to the independent kitchen specialist.
The trip was jointly led by Marcel Crezee, CEO of DER KREIS, and Bill Miller, Managing Director of KBBG, providing the opportunity for members to discuss, and to take advantage of the many benefits available as part of the largest buying group in Europe.
Bill Miller said: “It was a very successful first annual members’ meeting giving attendees the opportunity to meet and discuss their future needs. In addition, we presented the opportunity for KBBG members to see the buying group’s Vivari furniture range.
“The strong relationship with our European partners is there to support and give the UK retailer a great head start – all the ground work has been done. While sales growth with our suppliers is our focus for 2014, the proven European services and offers will strengthen the UK independents’ advantage and increase the members’ numbers.”
