Jebsen Building Products (Jebsen) has unveiled French fashion bathroom brand Jacob Delafon’s first showroom in Hong Kong via a new partnership with Kohler, purveyor ofexceptional home kitchen and bathroom products and brand owner of Jacob Delafon.
The showroom, housed in Jebsen’s Lee Garden Two corporate headquarters in Causeway Bay, offers an inspirational and immersive opportunity for architects, designers, contractors, and project owners of residential developments to experience how Jacob Delafon’s French heritage, craftsmanship, elegance, and luxury translates into premium bathroom collections for the home.
“Jacob Delafon is a strong addition to our Building Products portfolio, which is an essential component of the one-stop solutions that we provide to the architecture and design community. As more homeowners regard bathrooms as a personal sanctuary, we have found that our clients in the building and construction industry are also paying closer attention to the quality, style, and value of bathroom fittings and sanitaryware. We are delighted to offer them a wider range of choices, including Jacob Delafon’s impeccable design and quality, as we continue to help them create high-quality spaces for people to live, work, and play,” said Mr. Helmulth Hennig, Group Managing Director, Jebsen & Co. Ltd.
Strong heritage in one partnership
The new partnership between Jebsen and Kohler brings together three time-tested companies with a combined heritage of almost 400 years — Jebsen was founded in 1895, Kohler in 1873, and Jacob Delafon in 1889. The latter was acquired by Kohler in 1986.
“We believe that Jebsen is a perfect fit with the Jacob Delafon brand because they share many commonalities that extends far beyond their long European heritage. They both value elegance and authenticity, are passionate about beauty, innovation and technology, and are keenly interested in architecture, design, and the use of premium materials. Such brand alignment gives us confidence that this partnership will create valuable synergies,” said Mr. Larry Yuen, Group President – Kitchen & Bath, Kohler Co.
The partnership awards Jacob Delafon’s distribution rights in Hong Kong and Macau to Jebsen. This is expected to strengthen Jebsen’s services to Hong Kong’s high-end residential sector, even as it continues to serve the commercial, education, government, healthcare, hospitality, industrial, and recreational sectors across Greater China. In turn, Jebsen will invest in growing Jacob Delafon’s brand equity in Hong Kong and establishing it as a premium brand of choice for sophisticated homes.
