Agents required for modular bathroom and kitchen pods aimed at the new build and refurbishment markets, offering a complete solution. The target sectors and business opportunities are endless but will include a wide range of other markets in the property and hospitality sectors.

The product is a prefabricated range of quality bathroom and kitchen pods supplied with a range of sanitaryware, faucets, lighting and waterproof decorative panels. You will be selling the only SMC flat packed product offering in the UK, (sole distribution) suitable for both new build and refurbishment markets.

This is an opportunity for sales agents to get in at the start with a product that has great potential because of its unique benefits and applications for a large target market.

We are looking to speak with sales agents throughout England and Wales.

The Company – Modular Pods International

Modular Pods International Ltd specialise in supplying high quality, offsite modular construction bathroom and kitchen pods. We are designer, distributor, producer, and stockist, supplying modular bathroom pods to the UK & European construction industry.

Our B2B proposition adds real value to multinational construction projects, specialist medium sized building companies, and domestic applications.

We focus on the key benefits of offsite, factory controlled, production, in harness with fast track delivery and installation. This gives our products the benefits of outstanding value and clear competitive advantages, which agents can present to any architect, designer, building or construction company looking to capitalise on the benefits of modular prefabricated pods.

We are an innovative pioneer in our marketplace and are now looking for agents to help us open up the small to medium building customer segment in the UK. The current Pod manufacturers in our home market have never been interested in unlocking this fertile customer sector. This is due to their solutions being a bespoke engineered ‘plug & play’ offering to the large bathroom supply contracts and not the SME sector. For these competitors, the minimum order quantities are a barrier that we do not have.

This sales benefit, and many others, means we have no real competition in a customer segment that has huge dormant sales potential for agents to exploit.  The challenge is, the market segment is very fragmented, which is ideal for the sales agent model.

The Product – Modular Bathroom Pods

You will be selling our prefabricated range of quality bathroom and kitchen pods, offering our Good, Better, Best and Premium range including sanitaryware and waterproof decorative panels, or stand-alone pods if desired.

We are not an installation contractor, but we can recommend ‘MPI approved’ installers who specialise in bathroom pod installations UK wide. This is a good avenue for agents to increase sales. Demand for offsite pods is growing fast– so pod installation services within the SME building sector, is appealing as an additional income stream for builders who also become customers.

As we have a product design edge in the building and development renovation sector, we offer a free site survey for orders that would contain more than x 10 pods in 1 order. Another benefit for sales agents to present.

One of our main objectives for the next 2 years is to have our Pod product displayed in showrooms in the main population centres across the UK. We expect agents to support this re-seller relationship as the ‘show & tell’ sales approach is a proven deal clincher to those customers who have never used Pods before, which is a large percentage of the building sector.
