Bidbury & Co – Stand: S72 & H84

From a soft launch in 2023, Bidbury & Co is now officially launching as a premium manufacturer of taps, making its debut at the trade show in Birmingham, and sharing stands with both Häfele and Whitebirk Sinks. The English company has taken its 30 years’ experience in the KBB sector to launch its new product range. Managing director Richard Broadbent has been obsessed with design, manufacturing and finding the best possible solutions to produce its wares, the company says.

Deep R&D, and examining the competition, has inspired the team to re-engineer and improve designs, choosing the best materials and manufacturers in Europe to give a better-quality tap. This improvement gives another advantage with the ability to offer better service and longer warranties on the range of 15 new taps, the company claims.

Everyone is openly invited to start their journey with Blum, to challenge the rules of design convention, and expand their imagination beyond today’s norm. From discovering its living spaces, ranging from the compact through to open plan, with a myriad of different solutions and stories on the way. In a challenging environment, Blum says it understands its partners’ needs and provides services that enhance their offering to their own customers.
