“During 2020 Magnet CKS & Rixonway merged to create Magnet Projects. The ability to supply from local stock and factory direct enables Magnet Projects to provide a unique offering in terms of both scale and service in the UK. CHIC have been a valued business partner taking the time to understand the concept of our new business, and how this could support existing and prospective clients. We find CHIC approachable, supportive and proactive in providing a conduit between Magnet and our sharded clients to find cost effective kitchens solutions.”
