Kohler Kitchen & Bath Middle East commercial director Sandeep Singh tells Hotelier Middle East about its latest products
Tell us about your company and its core services.
Kohler offers a variety of products for the hospitality industry and a powerful portfolio of brands that set new standards in design, craftsmanship and innovation, all knit together by quality over a broad range of price points. The Kohler Kitchen & Bath Group encompasses an extensive family of businesses across the globe that manufacture plumbing products and cabinetry to residential, commercial and industrial markets.
What are the latest products that you have launched which hotels can benefit from?
We have launched our Kohler Konnect system which allows for easy control of smart bathroom gadgets through a handy mobile app. It provides a foundation to develop and apply internet technologies in the kitchen and bathroom industry. We also recently launched the ombré finish for kitchen and bath faucets which uses a technique that melds two vibrant metal finishes together to render a subtle transition from light to dark.
Why should hotel owners look at engaging in your services?
Kohler has been investing in innovative trends and is committed to deliver products with design and technology as the industry leader. We were the first to introduce the Kohler Konnect voice control in 2018. In addition, we have design studios and innovation centres located worldwide, through which Kohler has consistently been offering new standards in design, craftsmanship and innovation.
Can you tell us about a few hotel projects you have recently worked on?
In the Middle East, we have won and worked on several hotels, such as the three Habtoor City hotels in Dubai, and the W Dubai The Palm to name a few.
In a time where costs are being tightly controlled, how can you ensure that your products are ideal long-term investments?
Even though there has been a value engineering trend in the region, many investors are still looking for high-end brands as a long-term investment and Kohler products are meeting this demand. The richness of Kohler product lines help us meet the requirements of designers whether they are designing custom luxury bathrooms, remodeling the kids’ bathroom or working on hospitality projects.
