The Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group (KBBG) has recorded its highest ever payout of bonuses to members. Part of the renowned DER KREIS, Europe’s leading kitchen and bathroom buying group, the KBBG provides a range of exclusive, tailored benefits and services to support independent kitchen and bathroom specialists. One of the many, valuable benefits of membership is the annual supplier bonus payment, which reflects the members’ trading success.
This year the total bonuses paid to KBBG members were the best they have ever been and many members of the group received their highest payments to date.
With a recent study showing that 44 per cent of UK homeowners can’t afford to do any home improvement work in 2023 because of the rising cost of living*, and due to a natural reduction in new sales enquires, the bonus payments have provided KBBG members with an injection of cash when they needed it the most this year.
Bill Miller, Managing Director, KBBG, comments: “Not only is this a record-breaking year for our annual bonus payments, it also marks 10 years since the KBBG launched in the UK. We were the first independent buying group, specifically for the KBB industry, to launch in the UK. It’s fantastic to see the KBBG go from strength to strength, and we can confidently say that our members are reaping the benefits of being part of the buying group.”
The bonus payments are just one of the many advantages that the KBBG has to offer, as well as exclusive buying conditions and access to a broad range of leading kitchen and bathroom suppliers. It is the KBBG’s aim to ensure its members stay ahead of the competition, while maintaining their independence.
Martin Jones, Director, Cwtch Haus, adds: “As a member of the KBBG, we certainly take advantage of the exclusive offers and buying conditions available to us through the buying group. The ever-expanding list of suppliers is exciting, delivering further opportunities for us in the future too. The exclusive annual members bonus payment is an additional benefit and we were pleased to receive our highest payment to date. The cash injection is invaluable, enabling us to invest it back into the business and work towards even better results.”
