Retailers celebrated their success and saw Grohe kitchen taps added to the portfolio

Hafele announced an additional supplier to its portfolio and named the winners of its third annual Studio Partners Awards at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London.

Over 80 businesses attended the occasion, which for the first year was held as a stand-alone event. It included pre-awards presentations and a ceremony in Michelin-starred Marcus Wareing’s Gilbert Scott Restaurant.

In a pre-awards presentation managing director of Hafele UK Craig Chambers explained the company, which has seen a 12% growth through its Studio Partner network, has now become the exclusive national distributor for Grohe kitchen taps.

And he cited an uplift in appliance sales  of 83%, which he attributed to the popularity of its partnership with Smeg for small and major domestic appliances.

Chambers added: “It has allowed us to invest further into the appliance market”, with additional appliance brand partnerships expected to be announced in September.

Masterchef judge Marcus Wareing joined Chambers to present awards across eight categories, with all the winners presented an all-inclusive 5 Star trip to Dubai, as well as a trophy.
