Nolte acquired BKNC to grow direct-to-trade business

To expand its contract kitchens business news has been released that German kitchens brand Nolte acquired BKNC.

BkNC is a UK contract installation company and prior to the acquisition, Nolte was a shareholder of BKNC, but following the acquisition, that Nolte now wholly owns the business will no doubt assist Nolte in expanding its direct-to-trade and contract kitchens markets.

Although BKNC operates from its head office in Wrexham it serves a national client base of construction companies, from smaller luxury focused developers to large national homebuilders.

BKNC’s managing director, Harry Ruler is said to be remaining in the business, but he will now be stepping into the role of contracts director.

Of the acquisition BKNC’s managing director, Harry Ruler said: “After a partnership spanning over 25 years, BKNC and Nolte UK have officially merged, marking a significant milestone in our relationship. Renowned for supplying kitchens for iconic projects such as the Arsenal Football Stadium and numerous large-scale developments across the UK, this merger of business signifies a new era for both BKNC and Nolte in the UK as one combined operation."

Nolte Kitchens UK’s managing director, Chris Rushby, said that the acquisition offers “many great synergies and subsequent benefits” to the brands’ clients. He explained: “We have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with BKNC for many years, both as an investor in the business and also as a supplier – providing the business and their clients with Nolte high quality contract kitchens and our premium luxury ranges.”

“As a manufacturer, Nolte Kitchens UK will be servicing directly substantially more large-scale developments with national house builders as well as the bespoke smaller builds. Acquiring BKNC will allow for more competitive pricing and streamlining of the process, with a greater control and a heightened service proposition, from the initial design stage, to ordering and delivery, right through to installation and dedicated aftercare.”
