Hansgrohe launches Aquademie

Published:  10 September, 2009

ESHER: Television builder and presenter Tommy Walsh launched Hangrohe's Aquademie this week and spoke of the importance of looking after the environment.

The Aquademie's showroom has been upgraded to include new products, including the new high-end Axor range as well as the eco range.

Many products are on permanent display, with some installed to enable real demonstrations to consumers and retailers. It is not only the high-end products that are demonstrated. Hansgrohe’s demonstration range extends from the high-end to the more competitively priced products.

The Aquademie, as the name might suggest, includes hands-on training courses for installers in the newly opened Aquatech, and a retailers course that merchants my be interested in. A mobile training unit is also available.
