HPP joins the Supplier Partnership Programme
HPP is a leading manufacturer and supplier to the fitted furniture trade, offering a range of kitchen and bedroom doors, boards and fittings, together with wirework, lighting and flat pack cabinets.
Established in 1991, HPP’s headquarters in Oldham occupies 250,000 square feet, and is complemented by a branch in Sheffield.Over two hundred staff are employed to look after the needs of the trade, including a team of sales reps. Together with a fleet of liveried wagons, supported by its carrier partners, HPP deliver products across the country.
The company prides itself on the diversity of its customer base – from sole traders through to multiple retailers and builders merchants. HPP’s extensive product portfolio ensures that whatever the size or requirements of its customers, it has the products to meet these needs.
“For a company such as HPP, with such an enormous portfolio of products, being included within a CAD package, such as ArtiCAD-Pro, is extremely important. It provides us with our shop window, constantly displaying HPP doors to all those organisations, large and small, working in the KBB industry.”
Made to custom specifications, HPP’s portfolio of doors includes their Aspire vinyl-wrapped and Aspects PVC-edged ranges. The company manufactures some 9,000 Aspire doors and around 5,000 Aspects doors on site each week, offering a further 6,000 off-the-shelf products as well as stocked kitchen doors for the Avanti range. HPP also has a range of sliding wardrobe doors for bedrooms, and manufactures sheet material which is processed and cut to size for its customers. The company has an extensive range of wirework, lighting and flat pack cabinets, and is one of the largest Blum distributors in the UK.
HPP sales reps had traditionally used the company’s brochures to illustrate the product range, together with the web site. Dan Mounsey, Marketing & Business Development Director for HPP said: “We were increasingly being asked by our kitchen designer clients about the possibility of having our range of doors and other fittings included within a CAD package, as this would make it easier and faster for them to specify our products in their designs.
“We have been working with ArtiCAD since 2010 and the company remains our preferred CAD partner. The ArtiCAD brand is certainly extremely well recognised, and well-regarded, in the industry: our sales reps continue to report back that ArtiCAD is the ‘go to’ CAD solution for the KBB sector and it continues to be the most popular CAD package amongst our customers.”
The complete range of HPP doors is available as a comprehensive graphics catalogue within ArtiCAD-Pro. Designers are able to simply search for their chosen item(s) – whichever style of colour they wish – and then place these into their room design.
Dan Mounsey: “We are really pleased with the work that ArtiCAD has done with our doors over the years. They look great. The inclusion of our products within ArtiCAD-Pro gives our customers yet another reason to choose HPP. It certainly makes it easier for them and for those who use the EQ quoting system, it is a great bonus.”
