The In2 Group team collect their award

Fareham-based KBB retailer In2 Group took home the coveted Studio Partner of the Year prize at Häfele’s seventh annual Studio Partner awards.

The event – hosted by the UK arm of the German fittings and accessories manufacturer and distributor on 29 June 2023 at Warwick Castle – recognises the ‘best in the business’. This year, the judging panel included Vicki Evans, content creator for kbbreview’s sister consumer title KBB Magazine and its spin-off website These Three Rooms.

For this year, the categories also included Best Showroom Experience, Best Functional Space, Kitchen Design of the Year, Rising Star, and the top prize. For the first time, Häfele also gave an award for the Best Sales and Marketing Initiative, celebrating businesses that have elevated their brand in partnership with Häfele to drive growth and sales. The inaugural winner was Duncans of Grantown for its Moy County Fair project.

Commenting on the event, Gareth Bevan, sales director at Häfele UK, said: “From the calibre of the entries, it is clear that the Häfele Studio Partners are some of the best in the business. This year, more than ever, the nominations were fantastically diverse, creative, clever, and appealing, and included entries from firms in their infancy, all the way up to the most established. Our 2023 winners, as well as the other 11 studios shortlisted, should be enormously proud of their achievements. Congratulations to all.”
