Sirius Buying Group is joining forces with some of its leading Approved Suppliers – Franke, Glen Dimplex Home Appliances, Hoover Candy, Liebherr, Rangemaster, Swift and Symphony – to offer even more for the home appliance industry at this year’s Kbb Birmingham 2020.
With a wealth of expertise specifically geared to retaining independence for the UK retailer, Sirius Buying Group will work in conjunction with this specialist group of Approved Suppliers
From Stand K73, the buying group will deliver its catalogue of exclusive products and services alongside its Approved Suppliers.
Steve Jones, Commercial Director, Sirius Buying Group (pictured), commented: “Rather than completely change your business model, Sirius will augment your products and services and by making electrical appliance and kitchen retail a joint-strategy for the group, we have been able to rapidly foster new growth areas and economic development for our members.
“Being part of a buying group will work hard to safeguard your business assets by increasing brand equity, improving net margin, targeting specific markets and/or combining company values in the mind of the consumer to remain self-governing. By design, the Sirius Buying Group is owned by its members, for the benefit of its members.”
Emma Knight, National Account Manager, Glen Dimplex Home Appliances, added: “GDHA are really excited to be supporting Sirius Buying Group at this year’s kbb event, as one of their strategic suppliers.
“GDHA have a strong partnership with Sirius, offering over 100 years cooking experience across Range cooking, built-in, cooling and A&A.”
Steve Frost, Trade Marketing Manager at Hoover Candy Group, said: “kbb Birmingham is a major highlight of our calendar, bringing together the great and the good of the industry, and we are really looking forward to showcasing some of our latest product innovations at this year’s event.
“As a longstanding partner of Sirius Buying Group and a five-time Sirius Manufacturer of the Year award winner, retailers can be assured that they are getting the best quality and service via Sirius as one of our trusted trade partners.”
Robert Williamson, Retail National Business Development Manager, Symphony Group, added: “Put simply, it is our role as a premium kitchen manufacturer to be able to react to and anticipate market disruption so that our retailers can thrive – and kbb provides us with the ideal platform to capture a custom audience to engage with.
“Our continuing relationship with Sirius enables us to safeguard the future of many UK showrooms we work with and mutually commit to effective retail-change. The umbrella-effect of being part of a buying group means we can put measures in place to accelerate and increase business potential and as its member network continues to grow, so does the commercial opportunities Symphony can present its customers: at kbb and onwards.”
