November Newsletter

Nov 10, 2020

A warm welcome from all of us at The Excellence Group! Firstly, we would like to thank you for the amazing feedback and engagement from our first newsletter. In our November edition, the focus is more on sharing our team’s industry and technical knowledge.

We are so pleased to have our ever-popular TEG Tours back up and running after a short break during the lockdown period. Attendees join us for a morning to have detailed walk-through of our factories and showrooms to understand what we, as The Excellence Group, offer the industry as a whole. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are interested in joining one of these tours – email for more information and to book your slot.

During and subsequent to lockdown, we have been refining all business processes – ranging from marketing, to production to finance. It is so gratifying to see the benefits of this exercise in all areas of our businesses. Of course, we are all still a little bruised but we are confident that we have turned the corner and we are officially back on track.

In this edition, our quality network fabricators, Infin8 Surfacing, outline the various benefits of solid surfacing and high-pressure compact laminates in healthcare sectors. Valcucine demonstrates the timelessness of their offering, ensuring all their products are impervious to trends. Spotlight Joinery talks about the top trends coming through in kitchen design, which in turn sets the tone for the rest of your home. Italian importers Eurocasa, announce their newest and most exclusive finishes range, created by their designers and craftsmen in Italy. Craft Furniture validates the benefit of creating furniture pieces that all complement one another. Finally, The Excellence Group has put together a detailed Purchasing Guide when designing a new kitchen.

We hope you enjoy reading about these varied and useful topics. As always, we appreciate your feedback and engagement!
