We are honoured to be recognized for the sustainability we offer the Africa market.”

David Cooper, Managing Director Hansgrohe South Africa “To best service our customers and consumers on the continent we aim to leverage being part of a global company and the design excellence that brings, but we are also making sure that we have   the right products to satisfy the needs of local markets.
