Kronotex appoints Aluvert as wholesaler in South Africa

Kronotex, a member of the Swiss Krono Group and leading manufacturer of high-quality laminate flooring in Europe, announced that Aluvert has been appointed as wholesaler of its German manufactured laminate flooring products in South Africa.

"Aluvert is renowned for its wide distribution footprint in South Africa and it offers Kronotex the opportunity to reach markets and consumers who have been beyond our reach in the past," says Alan Calder, key South Africa accounts manager for Kronotex.

As the largest supplier of blinds in South Africa, Aluvert will distribute Kronotex products through its current distribution base and to flooring distributors and fitters. "The partnership allows us to distribute one of the world's top laminate brands," says Ian Meltzer, managing director of Aluvert.

Kronotex is well-known for its superior laminates and wide choice of designs and colours, whilst Aluvert specialises in the production and distribution of top quality made-to-measure blinds and components and supplies laminate flooring through its Floorquip division. 

Kronotex products are manufactured in Germany to exacting European Standards and Aluvert will be importing directly from the Kronotex factory in Heiligengrabe, Germany. The extensive range of Kronotex products will be available from Aluvert.

As a member of the European Producers of Laminate Flooring (EPLF), Kronotex complies with its strict environmental standards.
