Davroc has signed a deal for the nationwide distribution of the full Carron Bathrooms range from early December.
The two companies are family-run and have been carefully negotiating for the past six months to ensure a smooth transition process.
Davroc has three warehouses and distribution centres in the UK with a fleet of 36 vans and drivers. The distributor offers a next-day delivery service to most areas of the UK without the use of couriers or agencies.
To help with the new addition of Carron Bathrooms, Davroc has recruited an additional 17 team members within their office and distribution functions and are in the process of adding six more external sales managers to the total to 18 nationwide.
Chris Dodds (pictured right), managing director of Davroc, said: “As a business, our partners are very important to us, both in terms of their product, culture and most importantly their values. We have been in discussions with Carron for six months and we believe we have found a long-term partner who shares our goals of product quality and service. We are delighted to add Carron to our portfolio and look forward to working with James and the Carron team.”
James McMorrine (pictured left), managing director of Carron Bathrooms, said: “From our initial conversations with Davroc, it became apparent that our values were completely aligned in terms of product, innovation and service. With a commitment to offering the optimum customer experience in the professional bathroom sector, Davroc undoubtedly share the same goals as Carron. We are excited to be involved with such a respected partner and look forward to working with Chris and the team at Davroc.”
