Through our partnership with CIH, members are given a tremendous opportunity, with comprehensive support, to grow and progress their business into the retailing of fitted kitchens.”

CIH is dedicated to supporting its members, as the independent electrical retail market can be challenging, and we are delighted to provide our members with the tools and support needed to develop and evolve their businesses.”
