Duplo has added a new showroom suite at its headquarters in Addlestone, Surrey, to show it is working in partnership with the channel to add further value to businesses.
The official opening ceremony of the Channel Development Suite was performed by Duplo Chairman Robin Greenhalgh and Angela Osborne, Manager of the newly-named UK Channel Development Team. The renaming better reflects the role the team plays in working with resellers to secure more business.
Angela Osborne, Manager of the UK Channel Development Team said, “this is another practical example of our ongoing investment and support through our dedicated Channel Development Team. It’s an important step forward and will provide our dealer network with another way to grow their business. We know that successful business is built further with the benefit of an important back-up network – it’s not done in isolation.”
Duplo UK works with over 100 dealerships and all will now benefit from the dedicated Suite in Duplo’s main showroom, which contains a full suite of products that are used for live demonstrations and will also highlight how value can be added to printed sheets.
At the opening, it was also announced that partners also now benefit from another marketing tool, the DC-616 application packs. A new trailer that will transport Duplo’s DC-616 and other systems for demonstrations around the country was also unveiled.
In an additional support initiative, Duplo now also has a new mobile demonstration unit that can be taken to resellers and their customers.
