The Italian kitchen appliance manufacturer, Falmec, has announced plans to set up a UK subsidiary company to market its collection of premium extraction and cooking solutions.
Launched officially in the UK on 1st January 2020, Falmec UK Limited is being headed up by Sean Drumm, MD of the distributor ‘Showtime’ in Dublin that has been successfully promoting and selling Falmec appliances in Ireland since 2007.
Alongside MD Sean Drumm, the Falmec UK team will include Ron Blount (formerly of Blanco & Inventum), who will be responsible for Business Development. Both are to be supported by highly respected Sales Managers from the industry, including Gary Butcher.
Falmec’s decision to have a direct presence in the UK is part of a global strategy by the company to be closer to the market. It is designed to sharpen the focus on the UK market’s specific needs and further enhance Falmec’s product and service offer. The company will exhibit at KBB Birmingham, where it will also launch a new range of appliances.
Sean Drumm siad: “Our objective is to shine a brighter light on the extensive appeal of this award-winning collection and its many unique attributes. We are fortunate to already have a solid foundation in the UK - established by Euroline Sales & Marketing - on which to further develop the brand.”
“Having worked closely together with Falmec for well over 10 years, I know there’s a lot of potential in this brand”, says Sean Drumm, adding: “With excellent after-sales service back-up & PR expertise, we intend to be 100% focused on growing market share so that the Falmec brand receives the recognition it so richly deserves”
