Success for Bushboard’s Open Day with retailers and installers
Bushboard's recent Open Day on August 7th proved a successful event, attracting retailers and installers from across the UK to see the showroom, training centre and factory.
The day was held in partnership with market-leading power tool brand, Festool, to promote the ease of professional worktop installation for its laminate, solid surface and quartz worktops.
Visitors were given hands-on product demonstrations using a range of power tools to cut and fit Bushboard’s laminate and installer-ready brands of Encore solid suface and M-Stone quartz worksurfaces.
Marc Maslanka from Finish Matters in Brixworth won a Festool TS55 circular saw in the free prize draw.
12 of the visitors booked in and have already attended the dedicated one day training session that Bushboard run every week on professional worktop installation, and more bookings are in the pipeline into the Autumn.
Says Neil Horton, commercial director at Bushboard:
“There’s no mystique or risk in retailers handling their own worktop installations, it’s more about understanding how easy it can be with the support of professional training. Everyone who attended went away with that knowledge and we will be focussing more strongly on spreading that message far and wide across industry because we want retailers to take full advantage of the business opportunities it gives them.”
