In-toto Visit to Germany is Great Success

Seventy franchisees and In-toto staff visited the headquarters of parent company Wellman at Enger in Germany this month to view the stunning new kitchen collections for 2007. All franchisees are invited to participate in an annual visit that allows them to spend a whole day at the company's extensive internal exhibition. New franchisees also have the opportunity for a tour around the Wellman manufacturing plant.

Alno UK managing director, John Kinder welcomed the visitors to this year's exhibition and gave a short presentation highlighting the key new trends and exciting innovations on show, including a range of new contemporary colours, a futuristic handleless kitchen door and 'servodrive' drawers and pull-outs.

'This year's trip was a huge success, feedback from franchisees has been excellent,' said National Franchise Manager, Graham Russell.

'Having this opportunity to preview next year's new designs is very important as it allows our retailers to plan their introduction into showrooms by the end of the year, when the new In-Toto brochure becomes available.'

'The new designs, colours and innovations for 2007 are very exciting,' he added. 'Based around a theme of 'Inspired by life - designed for living,' they reflect the current trend for the kitchen to be a meeting place for families.'
