Claygate opened its doors at the Claygate Open Day 2018!
Marden, Kent. Sept 12th 2018 – Over 350 trade customers visited Claygate Distribution’s office and warehouse hub in Marden, Kent on Wednesday last week.
Claygate invited 30 manufacturers and over 350 trade customers to talk bathrooms and kitchens. Key suppliers from every sector of the bathroom industry including Kaldewei, Kudos, Coram, Bathroom Brands, Trojan and Wedi and many others presented their latest ranges and models to the trade visitors – from sanitaryware and shower enclosures, to pumps and shower trays.
There was time for fun too…. in between busy presentations there were helicopter rides over the Kent countryside, a laser clay shoot and JLR brought along their Landrover events team and their latest range of 4 x 4 vehicles taking customers over the custom built climbing frames. Over 350 portions of traditional fish and chips were served for lunch, and a BBQ for all in the evening. Music and entertainment, well into the September evening, was enjoyed by all courtesy of the Live Lounge Collective.
“We are extremely pleased and proud to have held this 3rd Claygate Open Day at our distribution facility in Kent. It was a great chance to meet up and spend some valuable time with our customers. At the end of the day we had over 350 customers on-site who had the opportunity to meet and discuss key products with 30 of our major suppliers. With so many displays and such great support from all our suppliers I believe our customers had a truly informative and practical day. Thank you to all our customers who journeyed to visit us and a big thank you to all our suppliers for their tremendous support on the day. – Malcolm Thomas – Sales Director
