Excellence in products and service

There are plenty of reasons for exercising care when choosing a sink, accessories and mixer tap. The sink is worked harder than almost any other element of a kitchen. It has to last the kitchen’s entire lifespan – which could be ten to twelve years, or even longer. It should be as hardy as possible. Working with it offer maximum ergonomic comfort. You prepare food around it, so hygiene is another important issue.

And you get the most important item of all from your kitchen mixer tap – drinking water. As such, you need to be absolutely certain that the materials used are compatible with healthy living. After all, you will be relying on our products day after day for many years. That’s why we set ourselves the mission of achieving excellence in everything that we do.

Reinventing the sink over and over again

Always new

How is our society changing, and how does community life develop? How can we square modern design with the changing requirements of everyday life? Breeze through life. Apartments in big cities are often small. Integrating functions more effectively within a sink in order to save space represents a welcome technical challenge for our German team of designers and developers.

We get at the heart of things to find thrilling new solutions. We have been winning awards for our work for years. Again and again.

Quality

“The best quality in every segment”: that’s BLANCO’s philosophy in a nutshell.

For instance, no sinks leave our plant without undergoing a final quality check. When it comes to our kitchen mixer taps, we pay particular attention to all parts that come into contact with water, and adhere to the utmost standards when choosing the materials to be used. One of our departments is solely focused on ensuring that our high standards of quality are maintained across all parts of the company. Here are a few examples that demonstrate our uncompromising approach to quality.

Service

A kitchen simply doesn’t work without a sink or mixer tap. What’s more, the kitchen mixer tap is also your home’s main source of drinking water.

In order to meet this responsibility, our service to customers begins before you even receive your sink or mixer tap: ensuring reliable delivery at the agreed time is a point of honour for us. And as we consider ourselves to be responsible for our products throughout their lifespan, you will be able to get the right replacement parts from us even years later. We owe it to you and the environment.

Should you experience any problems with one of our products, we’ll take care of it. We employ over 35 members of staff in our service centre in Germany for precisely that purpose. We have built up a close-knit network of service technicians in all of the markets within which we operate.

The easiest way to get in touch is to contact us online.

We also offer additional services to staff at our retail partners. Our training courses on advice and correct installation are very popular. The highlight is the training sessions at our training centre in Oberderdingen.

Innovation

Only those who are constantly developing their products and introducing innovations can secure and build upon their strong market position.

Such new developments have to win customers over by genuinely adding value and proving their worth in demanding everyday kitchen use. BLANCO’s development thus serves as a source of inspiration for generations of products to come, while also setting market standards that last for years.
One good example of this is the AXial concept, first unveiled by BLANCO in 2001. For the first time, AXial sinks allowed the user to undertake kitchen prep at the sink itself, in a highly efficient way. Today, having seen a number of further developments, it continues to provide the utmost ergonomic comfort and convenience.

Many of our developments draw upon our considerable expertise in materials and our experience as a sink specialist. In 2009 we presented our in-house innovation, the sink material Silgranit PuraDur, to customers. This was the result of a long development process and testing by independent testing institutes, who declared it to offer unparalleled robustness and ease of maintenance. Today, sinks made of Silgranit PuraDur are the best-selling composite sinks worldwide. Once you have experienced the advantages of this material, there’s no going back.

Often, however, the innovations are in the little details. At first glance these may be inconspicuous, but they offer tangible benefits. Such details can only come from the kind of company that is highly focused on sink centres. As such, our mixer taps always come with a little dirt filter for the angle valve as standard. This saves you the trouble of a dripping tap and greatly prolongs its lifespan.
