Why Use KCA as Your Trade Kitchen Specialist?

There is so much to say about the trade service we offer at KCA, so we’ve put together this article as an easily digestible summary for trades interesting in learning more. Reflecting on the past 28 years and the feedback we’ve received, this article shares some of the top reasons that trades use us.

Please forgive the self-promotional nature, we’re just really proud of the work we do and we hope that you find this an interesting read.

 At KCA we understand just how important your brand is, the importance of reputation and the value of experience. Developing prestigious properties requires a partner you can trust, one that will provide the same level of quality, refinement, and service as you do.

Whether you’re building a 10,000 sq. ft luxury home or developing 50 stylish apartments, KCA has the infrastructure, relationships, products, and expertise to deliver exceptional kitchen and fitted furniture designs that are the right fit in terms of style, quality, and budget.

Over 28 Years’ Experience

In a less than certain market, you need to know that you are working with companies with a responsible and reliable track record to ensure your investment is protected.

As an independent family company operating for over 28 years, we’ve weathered uncertain times, and each time, we’ve strengthened our offering to support our trade partners. Since we opened our doors, we have designed and installed over 5,500 kitchens, bedrooms and living spaces, averaging 200 installations a year. As specialists to developers and independent builders, our projects range from newly built individual homes to contracts of multiple apartments and houses.

Our years of experience working directly with private clients means that we understand the service and care they expect and what people want from their homes. By catering to both private clients and the trade, we recognise the kitchen and fitted furniture designs that make properties desirable.

This breadth of expertise positions us as the ideal project partner for all types of residential developments, whether speculative or client-led.

Full 360 Service 

Unlike some kitchen retailers, we offer all of our trade and private clients a full all-in-one service, including in-house design, project management, installation, and after-care. Our fully managed service removes the stress at every stage, coordinating every element of your project to ensure it’s finished to the highest standards, on time and within budget.

Our experienced trade managers work as an extension of your team, providing you with a reliable and consistent point of contact whilst seamlessly working in the background to deliver your project, saving you time and resource.

Industry-Leading Technology

As your trade partners, we are the caretakers of your brand and your clients. When it comes to looking after your projects, our best-in-class technology helps us accelerate project timelines, optimise efficiency, and provide a holistic view of a project journey from initial brief to sign-off. Our technology and detailed systems enable us to quote, schedule and manage multiple plots, sites and teams at any scale. Whatever the scope of the development, we tailor our services to your requirements.

Our trade partners benefit from our bespoke software that facilitates paperless working, efficient communication, real-time reporting, detailed quality checks and continuous project updates, leaving nothing to chance.

Unrivalled After-care

Our after-care service delivers a seamless, stress-free quality assurance for our trade partners and the future owners of their homes.  Our after-care service means you can feel assured that those living within your properties will be looked after for years to come. In fact, we’re still refreshing and servicing some of our first kitchens from over 20 years ago!

As a full-service company, we not only look after every element of the project from design right through to installation, but we also extend an after-care service to your customers for the life of the kitchen. As a trade partner, all of your clients and homeowners are fully covered under warranty and will receive a homeowner pack with the direct contact details of our dedicated client services team who will be ready to offer any assistance required.

‘So Much More’ Price Promise

With nearly three decades of experience in the KBB industry and the collective buying power of the Legendary Living Ltd. group, we have access to the latest products at the most competitive prices on the market. We can offer an unrivalled value to our trade partners by combining our buying power with our design expertise, service and industry-leading products.

The KCA ‘so much more’ formula ensures that your designs have impact and appeal whilst giving you the maximum return on investment. Through clever design and considered material selection – whether your budget is £12,000 or £150,000 per kitchen – the final result will be perceived as so much more than your investment.

Industry-Leading Products & Appliances

At KCA, we meticulously select and appraise brands that reflect KCA’s values for service, quality, and innovation. As an independent kitchen and furniture company, we aren’t tied to one manufacturer, which means we only use the right product for your project.

We believe that the quality of the materials and appliances we use are paramount in delivering projects that give partners an edge over their competition. For this reason, we only partner with the very best brands in furniture, appliances and surfaces to deliver lasting quality for your clients and future homeowners.

For speculative developments, our experienced team will ensure that your design specification matches the tastes and expectations of your target buyers.

Any Style, Size, Spec Within Budget

Our dedicated trade team draws upon extensive local and industry knowledge to produce competitive proposals for each project.

Their wealth of experience designing for private clients, combined with our industry-leading suppliers and products, ensure that each design is the right fit for the project in terms of stylequality, and budget.

At KCA, our mission is to position every project appropriately to deliver designs that enhance your properties’ value and help you stand out in a competitive marketplace.

Award-Winning, 5 Star Service

Our company was founded on the basic principles that kitchens need to be an enjoyable space to live and cook in whilst adding additional value to the property.

Today these values are at the heart of the ‘KCA Way’, an internal ethos and process that drives exceptional design, the highest quality materials/appliances, and outstanding customer service. The ‘KCA Way’ is evident in every one of our projects – from a single property to large-scale development – and as a result, we have fostered long-lasting relationships with both trade and private clients.

We are incredibly proud of the service we offer and the feedback in kind from our clients, earning us 5-star ratings across Google and Houzz.

Accredited Industry Experts

We know that a company is only as good as its people. That’s why we have a rigorous recruitment process and internal training program, designed to attract the best talent in design, project management and installation. Our intensive recruitment and internal training process allow us to set the highest standards.

When you choose KCA as your trade kitchen and fitted furniture specialist, you are working with qualified professionals that will bring a new dimension to your development and your business.

In addition to our internal training, all KCA team members that work on construction sites are CSCS certified. As a company, KCA is also citation approved, giving you peace of mind that we are fully qualified to work on your project in accordance with proper health and safety standards.

More than just Kitchens

More than just a kitchen company, we can extend our service to multiple rooms in your development.

Our multi-room service secures you even better value at scale from a brand you can trust. From kitchens, bedrooms and laundry rooms to home bars, media areas, and studies, our multi-room service minimises the number of suppliers, providing you with one point of contact and ensuring a consistent design treatment across your project.

Contact our trade team to find out how we can help you to enhance your kitchen and fitted furniture offering.
