Appliance supplier KitchenEx has partnered with UKE to sell its end-of-line, returns, ex-display, and refurbished products, providing a sustainable solution to unwanted stock.
It supplies independent kitchen specialists with cooker hoods from Faber (pictured), built-in ovens, hobs, hoods and range cookers from Ilve, as wellas filters from PlasmaMade.
Speaking about the partnership Helen Lord founder of UKE said “We are delighted to welcome KitchenEX on board.
“In addition to aligning with our sustainability values, selling graded and end-of-line models through UKE’s e-commerce platform is a great way to reach a highly motivated in-market audience.”
UKE’s Magento platform, due for launch in quarter two this year, has been devised to further enhance the service for the sale of appliances as well as other KBB end-of-line/reconditioned stock and cancelled orders.
Commenting on the partnership, sales director at KitchenEX Tom Harris said: “As a company, we are committed to reducing waste and becoming as sustainable as possible.
“UKE is the ideal partner for showcasing our end-of-line models, alongside customer returns, or those which may have slight damage to their packaging but are in pristine condition.
“UKE is the perfect solution to reduce the number of models we have in stock, and potentially offer a more affordable option for some customers.”
Scooping National Barclays Entrepreneur Award for sustainability, earlier this year, UKE was presented the honour of a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in recognition of its achievements for Sustainable Development in 2022.
