KOHLER AND ARTISAN GROUP DEVELOP SPECIALTY DEALER PROGRAM...

March 1, 2009

Kohler Co., a leading firm in kitchen and bath design and technology, recently developed a specialty dealer program with Artisan Group, a nationwide network of premier stone and granite fabricators.

“Combining two leading brands - Kohler and Artisan Group - fills a need in the marketplace that is currently underserved,” said Mally Henne, Channel Manager for Kitchen Products at Kohler Co. “Kohler’s wholesale channel is ready to connect and build business in this important surface market. This program ensures customers receive high-quality products from recognized brands within their respective industries. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”

In a first-of-its-kind program for Kohler, as a Registered Specialty Dealer, the Artisan Group will have access to Kohler and Sterling brand kitchen sinks and Kohler kitchen faucets, aligning with the manufacturer’s expansive network of national and regional plumbing wholesalers. Additionally, Artisan Group showrooms will be equipped with displays and product information on kitchen sinks and faucets so customers better understand their choices to complement countertop surfaces.

Kohler will offer special training to countertop sales associates, and provide the necessary sales tools to demonstrate a real-life look at the myriad of options available in kitchen sinks and faucets.
