The nature of our products requires KBI to oversee the installation process very tightly. Unlike other suppliers, we don’t just sell our raw materials to anyone and allow them to install. Working this way allows us to maintain the quality of the products and ensure that every finished surface behaves with the precise properties that we state it should have.
The KBI strategic partner programme was created to improve the lead times for installations across the UK and to increase the locations within which we could offer our innovative porous surfacing solutions. Our strategic partners are all reputable contractors in their own right, who have been trained by KBI UK in the installation of Flexipave.
Our strategic partners are not just sub-contractors, they are an essential part of the KBI team and as such we demand that they maintain the standards that our own KBI installation teams are known for.
Strategic partners are all required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement to ensure that the methods and processes used to mix and install Flexipave remain exclusive to KBI UK Ltd. Flexipave is a brand name for the specific permeable surface sourced and supplied by KBI UK Ltd, which makes it vital for us to protect the quality reputation that the product now carries.
As a growing company, KBI UK Ltd is always seeking to engage with potential strategic partners, both in the UK and in continental Europe. We have recently established our first such partnership in Italy with Arboteam IT, and have also begun supplying our product through partners in the Channel Islands and the Republic of Ireland.
Kai Trades Ltd
“We were keen to join the strategic partner programme having seen a surge in demand for permeable surfaces with the attributes of Flexipave. As KBI UK grows, our status as a strategic partner will inevitably allow us to grow and develop as well. Whilst we are always looking to improve our own brand, we are equally proud to be working under the KBI name”
