Hansgrohe announced as latest BiKBBI sponsor

The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom Installation (BiKBBI) has announced that Hansgrohe has become its latest corporate sponsor.

The Hansgrohe Group – which also owns the Axor brand – was first founded in Germany in 1901 and has been part of the UK market since 1990.

Julie McLean, marketing director for Hansgrohe UK, said: “The UK KBB installation sector is vital to manufacturers like us. That’s why so many of our product innovations are linked to benefits for installers – from our spare parts guarantee to ‘fit and forget’ designs that help ensure a quality finish and longevity for their customers.

“We are therefore delighted to support BiKBBI in its important work championing installers, retailers and the KBB industry, and the significant contribution they play in the wider economy.”

BiKBBI CEO, Damian Walters said the organisation was thrilled to have Hansgrohe’s support, and that BiKBBI was looking forward to working with the brand. He added: “It is vital that we collaborate with the wider industry, so to start 2024 by welcoming Hansgrohe, a much-respected business and brand, on board as a corporate sponsor is a real highlight for our organisation.

“It is also a significant step in our quest to garner support from more manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and retailers, all of whom are reliant on installation at some point in the cycle, as we work towards closing the communications gap, improving the skills shortage and ultimately building a sustainable workforce.”

Last year, Hansgrohe also opened a new faucets factory in Serbia, which it believes will strengthen its European manufacturing network and help secure supply chains.
