Jacuzzi Luxury Bath Announces Distribution Agreement with Ferguson
July 16, 2015
Jacuzzi Luxury Bath (JLB) has entered into a distribution agreement with Ferguson Enterprises Inc., the largest wholesale distributor of residential and commercial plumbing supplies.
Effective September 1, 2015, Jacuzzi Luxury Bath products will be exclusively available to the wholesale channel through Ferguson Enterprises. Furthermore, Jacuzzi brand wholesale products will be sold online through shop.ferguson.com and other online retailers. The Jacuzzi product offering is stocked at Ferguson Distribution Centers, allowing Ferguson to service customers nationwide.
“As we near our 60th anniversary of providing innovative, stylish and premium quality bath products, it has become imperative that we align ourselves with a national wholesale and showroom leader with strong distribution capabilities and commitment to outstanding customer service,” said Joseph Davis, president of Jacuzzi Luxury Bath. “This new distribution relationship will ensure that consumers and tradespeople will receive the same outstanding experience in selecting and purchasing Jacuzzi products from coast to coast.”
According to Davis, this exclusive distribution deal made sense for JLB because the brand wants to concentrate efforts on the custom luxury builder. To penetrate that market, the brand believes in being strong in the showroom, and Ferguson complements the brand and its portfolio of products.
“Ferguson and Jacuzzi share a long history of working together to satisfy our mutual customers’ needs,” said Steve Petock, Ferguson’s senior vice president of business development. “Jacuzzi is an iconic brand with a legacy of quality. The company’s recent focus and commitment to innovation and technology will complement Ferguson’s world-class distribution capabilities and showroom network to create a winning formula.”
“Culture in a relationship like this is extremely important,” added Davis. “Quality and customer service are extremely important in representing the Jacuzzi business. Ferguson has core values there as well.”
