KBBG Members to Enjoy More Brand Choices as AB Distributors Joins KBBG

The Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group (KBBG), part of DER KREIS, has signed up two more exciting brands, enabling independent kitchen retailers to offer an even greater choice of kitchen appliances to their customers.

AB Distributors is the sole importer of the De Dietrich and NordMende brands for the UK and Ireland. In joining the KBBG network, AB Distributors is offering the independent kitchen specialist substantial margins on a great range of exclusive products.

The pioneer of pyrolytic technology, De Dietrich is forward thinking in terms of innovation, and offers unique features and benefits to the retailer. Following their purchase by Cevital last year, the revolutionary French brand is now being re-introduced into the UK market on the back of major new investment.

NordMende launched their full appliance range seven years ago in Ireland and has so far captured a strong market share. Offering retro-style refrigeration in a range of models and colours, and a freestanding dishwasher that uses as little as 5.5 litres of water per cycle, which is the lowest on the market, AB Distributors Sales Manager, Michael Boland, asserts that NordMende is a value for money brand that will return a very decent margin for the independent kitchen specialist.

Reflecting on their new relationship with Kitchen and Bathroom Buying Group, Michael Boland says: “We view the partnership with KBBG as a strategic one. It has already been a two-way street and is working very, very well. I was particularly enthused when I met Bill Miller. He is an out and out professional and I was struck by the integrity, honesty and professionalism of the group. Bill is an opinion leader in the industry, which is why it is important for us to be a part of KBBG, and there really are no hidden catches for the independent kitchen retailer.”

Bill Miller, KBBG’s Managing Director, says: “This is a great new addition to the KBBG supplier portfolio. With all products in stock, a 48 hour delivery service and a three year parts and labour guarantee available on both brands, this new partnership with AB Distributors will further strengthen the position of the independent kitchen specialist in competing with the multiples. The choices for KBBG members and their customers are now better than ever. We are very pleased about the continued expansion of the group and extremely optimistic about the future for the independent kitchen retailer.”
