With over 35 years of experience and expertise, Bodel Distributors are one of Ireland's leading kitchen specialists. The company, which was originally founded in 1975, began by creating timber products for agricultural markets, along with flat packed wooden kitchens. The company soon expanded to specialise in sinks, followed by taps, and grew from there. They moved to their current location in Hulls Lane in Lisburn in 1980, allowing them to expand their range and branch out, to become the company they are known as today.


Ten years later, back in in 1990, Bodel introduced Smeg appliances into their range, keen to inject some stylish and innovative products to their appliance portfolio. Today, Bodel are Smeg's sole distributor across Ireland, stocking the complete range, a significant proportion of which can be found in their brand new showroom.

This new space, which had its grand opening last week, was opened by Dame Mary Peters, gold medallist at 1972 Munich Olympics. The evening was a massive success and allowed Bodel to show off their new space and celebrate their new look in style. The new-look showroom houses six Smeg range cookers as well as a selection of 50's style products, including the dishwashers, washing machines and fridges. They also have a fantastic wall dedicated to FAB30 doors, with the complete range of colours showing off the vast colour palate available. The main talking point of the showroom however is the SMEG500, Smeg’s beautiful mini-bar collaboration with FIAT. Parked in the entrance, it’s hard to miss.

All cooking appliances are powered and can be demonstrated live, so customers can discover how Smeg ovens operate and the bredth of features they offer. Smeg's new induction hobs are also a great example of this, by allowing the customer to actually use the product, they can see the benefits of the appliance and gain a full understanding of just how much it could revolutionise the way in which they cook.

Smeg are delighted to have fostered a strong relationship with Bodel, and are thrilled to see how their new and innovative ideas have come together to create such an amazing space.
