What BrandSource’s premium appliance partner is bringing to the party

By Alan Wolf, YSN

The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), held earlier this month in Orlando, served as a precursor for what’s to come at Summit 2022.

Among his many rounds at the sprawling appliance expo, Chad Evans, AVB’s VP of Merchandising, spent time at the Miele USA booth with company President/CEO Jan Heck. BrandSource forged a partnership with the family-owned premium kitchen, laundry, and floor care manufacturer two years ago, extending the brand’s 123-year-long track record for quality, innovation and value.

In a short video clip, shot in front of Miele’s new award-winning Generation 7000 combi-steam oven, Heck revealed that the company will be bringing much of its KBIS lineup to Las Vegas next month for Summit 2022. The introductions also include the ProfiLine Dishwasher collection, a commercial/residential hybrid with height-adjustable sections, hinged glass holders, and virus-killing rinse-cycle temperatures. Both platforms reflect the German vendor’s “timelessly elegant” design sensibility and founding principle of “Immer Besser” (“Forever Better”).

During their chat, Evans expressed BrandSource’s appreciation for the partnership with Miele and for the vendor’s enthusiastic support of the group. “Us too,” replied Heck. “We’ve come a long way in a very short time,” he said, citing the many BrandSource members across the country who support the Miele line. “We’re looking forward to big success in Vegas.”
