As 2017 draws to an end, we have been looking back at what we have been up to over the last year and what we have to look forward to as 2018 approaches!
The launch of SensoryKraft
In January, Jan Wdowczyk started as our new Sales and Marketing Manager and embarked on the task of developing a new sensory brand for Kingkraft. Seven months later, it was with great pride that we launched SensoryKraft, a new company arm specialising in sensory products.
Since the launch we have developed a new weighted product range called SensoryLine, which includes weighted gilets and wraps for all ages. As well as weighted products, SensoryKraft works alongside Kingkraft designing and installing Sensory rooms and bathrooms and the first installation has gone in this November!
With Kingkraft's engineering knowledge and equipment, we have been able to design and manufacture our own Sensory Products, this includes a touch and noise sensitive light tube along with a whole range of different Sensory Products. You can visit the website here to see what we can offer www.sensorykraft.co.uk
With Kingkraft expanding, we were delighted to appoint Neal Dadswell as Regional Sales Manager for the south of the country. Neal has brought a wealth of sales experience to our team and has got off to a flying start in his new role.
As well as providing you with first rate products, we have made time to showcase our wider product range as well. That's why over the past year we have been busy attending events and exhibitions, demoing everything from our height adjustable baths to sensory jackets. The year finished off in Birmingham with the The OT Show on 22nd and 23rd November. It was a pleasure to be there, and catch up with old friends and meet new people.
Introducing the GHZ Hoist from Guldmann
As one of Guldmann's UK distributor we were honoured to install one of their new GHZ hoists into our new SensoryKraft Showroom. The lifting module runs inside the traverse rail which minimizes the installation height.The elegant design blends in perfectly with the existing surroundings and the minimal built-in height delivers an attractive lifting span in rooms with low ceiling height. GHZ is a very discreet, almost invisible solution which provides a safe and comfortable patient lift and an ergonomically safe working environment for the healthcare staff.The sleek and simple design also makes it is easy to clean!
The New Year!
Our Sales Team will be all over the UK in 2018, including OTAC, Kidz Exhibitions and The OT Show. We will also be heading over the water to Rehacare in Dusseldorf in September to meet with our distributors
Kingkraft are constantly trying to design and improve new and existing products, so make sure you keep an eye out on Facebook and Twitter for all updates!
We draw 2017 to a close on that positive note, and look forward to working with you in 2018 and beyond.
