Thomas Crapper has been appointed as exclusive distributor of Italian bathroom brand Sbordoni.
Both companies are aimed at style-focused customers in the luxury sector. Sbordoni has a variety of classically designed collections, such as double console basins, striking washstands and high- and low-level toilet sets.
Thomas Crapper said the Sbordoni brand was a natural addition to its portfolio.
Paul Dwyer, managing director of Thomas Crapper, said: “Our distribution agreement with Sbordoni represents a superb opportunity for Thomas Crapper and our retail partners. The Sbordoni brand has been in the UK for over 25 years and is well-known in the architect and designer community, although it’s probably fair to say that recently it hasn’t had the exposure in independent showrooms that it deserves.
“Sbordoni started manufacturing in Italy in 1910 and has maintained a high degree of authenticity in its product offering, in a very similar way to Thomas Crapper. We intend to support the independent retail network in the same way we currently do with Thomas Crapper, giving differential buying terms and an area of exclusivity to dealers who invest in displays. Although we now have a good network of Thomas Crapper retail partners, we have areas available for new retailers who want to sell high-quality products with excellent levels of customer service.
“We know the products will prove popular with consumers and our retail partners can sell them with confidence knowing the products are manufactured to the same high-quality standards as Thomas Crapper’s existing products.”
