The primary objective of the research was to develop a theory of corporate branding that could be applied in a 'coopetitive' market context. The context was that of sanitary ware, heating and plumbing (SHAP) industry in Central Europe (CE). As a professional distribution channel with channel member interdependencies that [sic] and multiple brands, coopetition is created. The channel is also subject to legislation that limits the actions of its members - adding restrictions and complexities to the creation of a corporate brand.
