After six months of negotiations, Davroc has announced a new strategic partnership for nationwide distribution of the full Carron Bathrooms range.
Davroc has recently launched the Coalbrook brand, a range of design-led bathroom brassware products which are showcased The Market Building in Clerkenwell. Currently it distributes a number of well-known and trusted brands including Laufen, Bette, Roca, Aqualisa, Grohe, VitrA and more recently Alca and Drench.
Carron is a UK manufacturer of acrylic baths, based in Falkirk, Scotland, with manufacturing heritage dating back over 260 years to the Industrial Revolution. All baths are designed, manufactured and quality assured exclusively in the Carron factory in Falkirk. The product portfolio includes a range of rectangular and freestanding baths and whirlpools as well as a range of shower screens, panels and accessories.
Distribution by Davroc is due to commence from early December, with fast-moving product lines already in stock across their three warehouse and distribution centres in the UK. Davroc’s fleet of 36 vans and drivers means they are able to offer next day delivery service to the majority of the UK without the use of couriers or agencies.
Davroc has recruited an additional 17 team members within their office and distribution functions and is in the process of adding 6 more external sales managers to bring external representation to 18 nationwide.
Chris Dodds, Managing Director, Davroc comments “As a business, our partners are very important to us both in terms of their product, culture and most importantly their values. We have been in discussions with Carron for 6 months and we believe we have found a long-term partner who shares our goals of product quality and service. We are delighted to add Carron to our portfolio and look forward to working with James and the Carron team.”
James McMorrine, Managing Director, Carron Bathrooms Ltd comments “From our initial conversations with Davroc, it became apparent that our values were completely aligned in terms of product, innovation and service. With a commitment to offering the optimum customer experience in the professional bathroom sector, Davroc undoubtedly share the same goals as Carron. We are excited to be involved with such a respected partner and look forward to working with Chris and the team at Davroc”
