Laval, Quebec, April 20, 2006 :
20-20 Technologies, together with Viking Range Corporation – manufacturer of ultra-premium kitchen appliances sold in over 80 countries – is pleased to announce an agreement to create a Viking appliance catalog for 20-20’s industry-leading kitchen and bath design software, 20-20 Design™.
“Pairing our high-quality product line with 20-20’s advanced software technology will be a great resource for designers,” said Jim Gregory, Manager, Design Relations for Viking.
The Viking catalog, which will feature products from the Viking Professional and Designer Series, will make it easier for 20-20 Design™ users to include ultra-premium appliances into their design projects. Users will also have the option to use full overlays to create a more customized look and better address customers’ needs and wishes.
“20-20 is thrilled to be able to offer its 20-20 Design™ users the option to add Viking appliances to their design projects,” said George Papaioannou, Director of Enterprise Solutions for 20-20 Technologies. “The catalog fills a void for high-end kitchen appliances that our clients have been eagerly anticipating,” he added.
20-20 Technologies and Viking will be demonstrating a version of the Viking catalog at the Kitchen/Bath Industry Show (K/BIS) April 21-23 at McCormick Place in Chicago at 20-20’s booth, number 6973, and the Viking booth, number 3202. The Viking catalog will soon be available for restricted download through 20-20 Technologies’ update and support Web site, www.2020.net.
