Kitchen frontal specialist Burbidge join Blum in launching their two-day customer event

Kitchen frontal specialists Burbidge joined forces with Blum to launch a two-day event for a select group of Burbidge Premium Partners.

Burbidge’s Premium Partners spent the first day at Blum’s HQ in Milton Keynes where they were able to immerse themselves in the fittings manufacturer’s state of the art facilities. Key topics covered included product innovation, technology and the businesses’ brand heritage.

The attendees then headed off to Coventry for an overnight stay and dinner hosted by Burbidge, followed by a day of training. This included a tour of Burbidge’s manufacturing facilities during which customers were asked to take part in a light-hearted ‘Factory Skills Challenge’ where they got the chance to try their hand at various manufacturing processes.

Retailers were also given detailed training and privy to the latest kitchen range – handle-less Otto, which was showcased in the most recent laminate finish and colours – Dark Walnut and Concrete mixed with Light Grey Matt.

“We are delighted that our first collaboration with Blum for our training day was such a success,” said Ben Burbidge, managing director at Burbidge. “16 of our Premium Partners attended and the feedback we have gotten so far has been fantastic.

“We strongly believe in building solid productive relationships with our Premium Partners and this was a great networking opportunity as well as a training session. Having worked closely with Blum for two years, we thought it would be a perfect opportunity to host a two day event to show retailers our unique Burbidge and Blum offers.

“It was a great two-day event had by all, we are delighted with the turnout and are looking to revisit in the future.”
