Germany kitchen furniture manufacturer Rotpunkt has invited 200 of the “finest” KBB retailers to its headquarters in Germany during the fourth quarter of 2019 to “minimise the possible impact of Brexit for its UK retail network”.

The company said it will demonstrate its “latest developments set to provide stability for its retailers and significant opportunities for new growth in 2020” to the invited retailers, adding that, regardless of the outcome of Brexit, it anticipates “huge market change”.

Rotpunkt added that it has put “dependable measures in place to limit – if not avoid – any detrimental impact to both brand and business”. Rotpunkt UK operations head Matt Phillips, pictured, said: “This unbroken retail investment comes at a time of great importance.

“Rotpunkt recognises there is a lack of clarity on future trade, which is why we have taken such a structured approach to our business development this year. We want to remove any ambiguity for our retailers so that they can concentrate on long-term profitability over momentary growth.”

Phillips added: “There is a conclusive need to prepare for the unknown and in terms of retail, be able to monopolise the market and influence trends when the competition is being overcautious.”
