Who we are

Kitchen & Bath Global Partners is your conduit for change. The speed of change is constantly accelerating, which means businesses need to have the ability to adapt quickly if they want to stay viable in the future.

The Kitchen and Bath Industry has traditionally been slow to move forward. However, technology is changing rapidly and is creating a major shift in how consumers conduct business. We must be able to pivot quickly and change in order to meet the customers’ growing expectations.

Shaping the K&B Industry
of the future

KBGP was born out of a desire to help dealers to become successful by working smart and approaching change in a pro-active rather than a re-active way. Far from the old model buying group, we are constantly looking to the future. We provide education to our members so that they can stay ahead of the curve and become leaders-in-change. This, in turn, will provide them with tremendous opportunities to increase market share and be more profitable.

Our passion to help dealers become the top in their class drives us to constantly challenge ourselves to become a better resource for our members and our vendor partners.
