This week is Clerkenwell Design Week in London and desk top power module, monitor arm and cabling solutions manufacturer and supplier, ABL UK Limited has chosen the occasion to relocate its customer showroom facility to a more prominent location.
Located in the heart of Clerkenwell, an area renown for hosting this week’s annual festival for interior design specialists, the opening of the new showroom is part of ABL’s ongoing plan for growth in the UK and to enable the company to showcase new products to a wider audience.
The new showroom represents a significant investment for ABL, who plan to use the new street level showroom to display its full product range. Set within a real office environment, customers will be able to see and experience first-hand the functionality and benefits of each product before choosing to stock the ABL range or recommend them on commercial office fit-out projects.
Whilst ABL has had a showroom in Clerkenwell for a number of years, the company had outgrown its previous property which was located in a basement meaning that potential customers could walk past not knowing the showroom was in the basement.
Commenting on the move, ABL UK Managing Director, Paul McKenzie, said “Our new location is still very much in the heart of Clerkenwell, but now we are at street level it means our branding and products will be much more prominent. We therefore hope to benefit from passing footfall, particularly during Clerkenwell Design Week which is such an influential event in the calendar of key events for our industry.”
He added, “We hope that our existing customers and new customers will drop by to see our expanding range and will approach us to make use of this fantastic showroom.”
The new showroom address: The Old Trading House, 15 Northburgh street, London, EC1V 0PR.
ABL’s UK distribution centre is based in Wellingborough where it employs 26 staff. It also has a manufacturing facility in Serbia which employs 47 technicians and engineers. Combined, the company turnover is £6 million.
