Having been hampered by the pandemic, Sika Everbuild is once again rolling out its popular roadshow to builders’ merchants across the UK — in Covid-safe fashion — to give tradespeople a chance to take a closer look at its expansive range of products and also offer product training to merchant counter staff to ensure they are fully equipped to give customers the best possible advice.
The company is now taking bookings from merchants who feel their customers could benefit from the product insights — and is allowing merchants to specify which products they would prefer to highlight, to fit with their key ranges.
