Johannesburg, South Africa: German luxury sanitary fittings brand, Hansgrohe, has recently appointed David Cooper as its new Managing Director.

Cooper, who joined Hansgrohe SA in December 2014 and has more than 15 years experience in the management and distribution of international brands in Africa, plans to entrench the company’s position in South Africa as a market leader and use it as a springboard for further expansion of its Africa network.  Hansgrohe SA currently has a presence in more than 30 showrooms in 9 African countries.

Cooper says that Hansgrohe has enjoyed phenomenal success on the continent over the past two decades with its Hansgrohe and Axor brands, and plans are in place to expand its range to include products that suit a broader segment of the local market.

“In addition to new locally suitable products, we plan to work even closer with our loyal trade partners. We are committed to giving our customers peace of mind by continuously delivering industry-leading service, both pre- and post- sale.”
