Hansgrohe AG further consolidates its top position / Baden-Württemberg design award for the Black Forest bath specialist
Hansgrohe AG further consolidates its top position in the International Forum Design company ranking updated this week. With 840 points, the Black Forest mixer and shower manufacturer is now ranked an amazing twelfth out of around 1,900 companies listed, rising 13 places. The new ranking means the global company has moved considerably further away from its competitors in the sanitation sector. Hansgrohe also leaves other renowned brands such as Daimler, Audi, Hewlett Packard, Nokia and Volkswagen in its wake in this A-list of the best design companies. “The fact that we are leading from the front in this international design ranking and that we are number 1 in the sanitation sector makes us justly proud,” declared Philippe Grohe, the Head of Axor, the designer brand of Hansgrohe AG. "This underlines the leading role that we are playing in terms of design, due to our long-standing commitment to 'good form' in the bathroom and close collaboration with major international designers such as Antonio Citterio, Philippe Starck, Patricia Urquiola, the Bouroullec brothers, Jean-Marie Massaud and Phoenix Design."
