Lancashire-based kitchen, bedroom and bathroom furniture manufacturer J&J Ormerod plc (JJO) has announced that it is now stocking and distributing the Candy range of built-in appliances.
Gill Greenhalgh, purchasing director at JJO, said: “We have been considering an additional appliance brand for some time. The market is crowded with similar brands and products that offer no points of difference.
“We firmly believe that the Candy brand offers great styling with truly unique features – all at very competitive price points and we look forward to establishing Candy within our portfolio and building the brand within the independent kitchen retail channel.”
Dan Halfpenny, head of channel at Haier Europe, which acquired Candy in January last year, added: “JJO’s operational strengths and knowledge of the industry made them a perfect partner for Candy to launch its new Timeless range into the kitchen market.
“Candy’s strong design elements, real value and attention to detail compliment the same qualities offered by JJO across its range of kitchen furniture.”
