Niko Bathrooms – one of Ireland’s leading suppliers of market leading bathroom products (and part of the Uppercross Group) – continues to ‘inspire’ and innovate at its Dublin Showroom with the unveiling of the Carron Bathrooms baths range.
The launch marks the announcement of a new partnership as sole distributor for the full range of Carron Baths. The range will be available to retailers, plumbing merchants, builders merchants and bathroom showrooms across the Republic of Ireland from August 1, 2022.
Paul Thompson, Niko Bathrooms Managing Director says, “We pride ourselves on partnering with brands that are not only the best in their category but also align with our company values. So when the opportunity presented itself for us to collaborate with Carron Bathrooms, we knew immediately it was the perfect partnership and that Carron Baths are a natural addition to our range, with a strong focus on design and quality and a proud brand history.
“Our new distribution agreement will ensure that Carron Baths will be stocked on the ground in Dublin and readily available to our customers via our distribution centre in Broomhill Complex, Tallaght.”
Carron is the UK’s market leading manufacturer of acrylic baths, based in Falkirk, Scotland, with manufacturing heritage dating back over 260 years. All baths are designed, manufactured and quality-assured exclusively in the Carron factory. The product portfolio includes an enviable range of rectangular, freestanding and shower baths as well as a range of shower screens, panels and accessories. Carron’s unique, triple-layer reinforcement ‘Carronite’ system is the plumber and fitters’ choice and boasts a 30-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Quality & innovation
When it comes to quality, there is no compromise with a Carron Bath. Manufactured with CARRONITETM – Carron Bathrooms’ unique, market-leading finishing system – Carron Baths feature a range of benefits for the consumer and the environment. These include, increased strength, the ability to keep water levels warmer for longer (so no need to top it up) and peace of mind with a 30-year guarantee.
Carronite Baths are the professional choice for plumbers and fitters because of their consistent quality and custom-fit baseboards that are cut to size for each Carronite model and applied before the finish is applied.
The arrival of the Carron range brings immediate innovation to the Niko Showroom with the launch of the Carron Editions+ range. This introduction combines innovation and the latest trends, with an exclusive new +Matt Finish – a unique feature that takes acrylic baths to the next level.
The stunning Carron Sienna Bath with The Matt Finish+ is now a statement piece at the Niko Bathrooms Showroom. It’s stunning design is described as “smooth, warm and incredibly tactile.” The +Matt Finish option is a game-changer for the world of bathing and bathroom design. The reliable and practical benefits of acrylic are teamed with a sumptuous finish that has only been available with ceramics and pottery. Carron’s +Matt Finish Baths bring a whole new world of bathroom options and décor choices. High-end furniture and cutting-edge brassware will team perfectly with this design statement.
When speaking about the new partnership, James McMorrine, Managing Director, Carron Bathrooms said, “From our initial conversations with Niko Bathrooms, it became apparent that our goals were completely aligned in terms of product, design, innovation and service. “We are delighted to see the Carron Baths Range taking pride of place in this beautiful state-of-the art showroom and we look forward to working with the Niko Bathrooms Teams on the forthcoming launch of Carron Baths to their customers across the Republic of Ireland.”
