The company is striving to reach carpenters from approximately 80 cities nationwide within the next six months for their skill enhancement.

Empowering carpenters in the unorganized Indian furniture market

In India, more than 70% of the furniture market’s total value remains unorganized. To make a substantial impact in the market, it is crucial to collaborate with carpenters, who directly influence customers’ decision-making and product quality. Ensuring skill enhancement by providing carpenters with the right information and tools is essential for bringing the latest developments to end customers. With this program, REHAU’s goal is to educate carpenters in India about Edgeband, a solution that enhances the appearance and durability of furniture while increasing carpenters’ productivity. Furthermore, RAUKANTEX UPVC Edgeband offers a range of colours that match those of India’s leading laminate manufacturers and is available in various sizes. REHAU will also cover how its product range aligns with the latest industry trends and best practices, building the necessary expertise for implementation.

At these gatherings, REHAU introduces carpenter communities to its products, including Edgeband, Polymaster Adhesives, Masking Tape, Roller Shutters, and Plinth systems. These products have already gained a positive reception in the domestic market, and REHAU utilizes the platform to actively train partners on their applications and unique selling points. For instance, the Edgeband range offers a variety of colours, sizes, textures, and patterns and comes in different roll sizes. REHAU designed its Polymaster adhesive with an integrated nozzle opening for easy dispensing and waste minimization. Carpenters will also receive training on other products essential to their daily operations. This includes REHAU masking tapes that provide excellent adhesion to furniture surfaces and leave no residue when removed. Ultimately, empowering partners to offer suitable products and applications is the key to ensuring customer satisfaction.
