Premium Italian appliance brand to make its UK debut

Milan-based built-in premium appliance brand, Signature Kitchen Suite (SKS), is set to be launched in the UK this month, with Falmec UK announced as the exclusive distributor.

Falmec UK’s managing director Sean Drumm will be responsible for the brand in the UK market. He is said to have extensive knowledge of the SKS brand from his time as director of Showtime Essential Kitchen Products in Dublin.

SKS, which is owned by LG Electronics, was first strategically introduced into the European market in 2020, but will now be made available to the wider UK trade market for the first time.

Signature Kitchen Suite is said to comprise a curated collection of cooking, cooling and dishwashing appliances. According to the company, it also complements Falmec UK’s existing product portfolio of extraction and induction appliances, as well as its sinks and taps.

Within the UK market, SKS will be supported by the existing Falmec regional sales team, as well as its business development director, former Blanco MD Ron Blount. Drumm said he is extremely proud that Falmec has been selected to represent Signature Kitchen Suite in the UK.

“It’s high time that a new and superior option entered the mix at the top of the market to offer designers a totally fresh and much more flexible built-in appliance collection for their clients”, Drumm said. “At SKS, we can offer a rewarding margin opportunity and, for a display investment, very favourable terms – with no minimum requirements – unlike our competitors.

“There are many other tangible benefits of our new partnership with this powerful premium brand, including valuable five-year parts and labour warranties, plus a 10-year guarantee on the motor. That’s why we firmly believe there is a definite gap in the UK market for the prestigious Signature Kitchen Suite range.”
