The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation (BiKBBI) has announced that bathroom retailer Easy Bathrooms has become a BiKBBI Retail Installation Standards Partner in preparation for the launch of its national installation service, Simply Install.
BiKBBI stated that Simply Install will provide customers with a turnkey fitting service across Easy Bathroom’s 139 showroom estate, working closely with BiKBBI to deliver a robust proposition for its customers.
David Rowley, Easy Bathrooms’ head of installations, said: “We’re delighted to be working with BiKBBI as we develop Simply Install across our showroom estate over coming weeks and months. I have worked with BiKBBI for many years and enormously value the work they drive within our industry.
“At Easy Bathrooms, we completely understand the challenges facing the industry, especially the evident shortage of skilled labour across the construction and home improvement sector. We’ll work with BiKBBI, not only to connect and work with the very best specialist bathroom installers, but to collaborate efforts in the building of a sustainable future pipeline of professional installers for tomorrow.
“BiKBBI is a key strategic partnership for us for several reasons. The organisation manages and maintains the bulk of our compliance requirements, ensuring that risk to our customers and brand is minimised with their leading compliance management tools.
“Additionally, they help us to connect with new installers, deliver training and development to both our installers and internal management team, provide us with an inspection service and generally support the complex task of Easy Bathrooms delivering a leading installation solution for our customers.”
Christine Masson, spokesperson for BiKBBI’s registration team, added: “In addition to the benefits for a retailer to partner with us, it’s important to recognise the many benefits that professional installers gain in registering with the UK’s only institute dedicated to their sector.
“We help these businesses, often micro-SMEs, to gain a bigger voice, join with thousands of other like-minded professionals, get access to news, technical updates, commercial cost-savers, training and development and specialist support for their business.”
