German water heating and renewables manufacturer, Stiebel Eltron will be celebrating the launch of its new showroom in Takapuna, Auckland. Customers can now experience Stiebel Eltron's hot water, heating, and ventilation products in an interactive showroom space.
Auckland is the headquarters for the New Zealand team and home to seven employees. In this North Shore showroom space, a wide variety of products from the business are on display, including energy-efficient hot water, renewables technology for heating, and balanced heat recovery ventilation.
The company's New Zealand operations began over 25 years ago with agents representing the brand mainly selling hot water and heaters. After over a decade of success in New Zealand, the company decided to open its own subsidiary under the leadership of Stiebel Eltron New Zealand's Managing Director, Jason Kerr, in 2016.
Jason says, "The main aim of the showroom is to create a space where architects and designers can come in and visualise the products, which allows them to specify them and present them to building owners. Installers can also come in and participate in training in-store."
A central feature of the showroom is hydronic heating which is powered by a Stiebel Eltron air-sourced heat pump. This heat pump technology has been tried and tested in Germany for nearly 50 years, consistently delivering energy, environmental and financial savings. Stiebel Eltron began developing heat pump technology as early as 1976 for energy-efficient hot water, heating, and cooling.
On August 23rd, key industry stakeholders will gather at the new Stiebel Eltron showroom opening. Guests will enjoy drinks and canapés and have the chance to inspect, try out and learn about different green energy products in the brand-new showroom space.
Jason concludes, "It is really great to see Germany invest in New Zealand with interactive showrooms and employing key staff. This allows us to show the industry what's available in the market here in New Zealand in terms of energy-efficient products."
