Fibo UK has announced it is now an approved supplier to all members of the merchant buying group PHG, which represents 366 branches and showrooms in the plumbing and heating sector.
Demand for bathroom and kitchen wall panels is reportedly growing rapidly as more merchants and their installer customers realise the benefits of panels over traditional tiles.
Fibo’s Aqualock tongue and groove system means panels are five times quicker to install than tiles, and now also includes a range of sealants and accessories.
Joining PHG coincides with the launch of Fibo’s 14 new designs, including marble and stone effect panels, more choice in finishes and a greater range of colours. Members will now be able to create displays and take advantage of new sales opportunities with the wall panels.
Fibo Managing Director, Scott Beattie, said: “We’re delighted to be an approved supplier of PHG. Fibo was already supplying some members, but to be formally part of the group means we can continue to build on existing relationships as well as establish new ones. We are committed to helping merchants do well with our range and will be actively engaging with all members to show how our panels can add value to their businesses.”
PHG Lead Negotiator, Gordon Jackson, added: “With many positive comments from members already dealing with Fibo, along with its unique product features, it made sense for us to add them to our approved supplier list. We look forward to working closely with the team and making the most of this growing market.”
