Investment in people, plant and production-process combine to provide merchants and installers with a compelling sales edge.
Merchants, contractors and installers will now be able to benefit from the industry’s quickest and importantly, completely free delivery, in the UK or Northern Ireland of a range of specialist stainless steel washroom, catering and janitorial products from Franke Washroom Systems (aka as Franke Sissons) following the company’s recent investment at its large modern production facility in Chesterfield. Continually investing in its people and in efficient processes has underpinned the continued success of Franke Washroom Systems in recent years despite the acknowledged difficult trading conditions in most of their target markets.
Product Marketing Manager, Victoria Himsworth explains, “We have invested in our sales and technical teams as well as in our production procedures to ensure our customers have a competitive advantage when they buy from us. As an example, urinals and washtroughs tend not to be core ranges for many merchants. As a result these bulky products are held in very shallow stock which means when a contractor needs one, or multiple items, the normal industry wait can be a week or more. This can obviously result in a lost sale for the merchant or installer. To address this we have developed a new lean manufacturing and delivery process that allows merchants, throughout the UK including Northern Ireland, to take advantage of a profitable sale and be confident that the product will be despatched to them or to site in the shortest possible time.”
In addition to the super-quick despatch promise on a single exposed urinal or washtrough, Franke Washroom Systems can offer products like bucket sinks with splash-backs, drinking fountains with bottle fillers and knee-operated washbasins in just 24 hours. Bespoke length washtroughs and urinal troughs can be produced and be ready for delivery in just five days.
