Now that you have a good knowledge of Geberit and its activities, we propose to discover who are its main competitors and adversaries in the market with a presentation of the major players in this sector:

The major partners of Geberit

The Geberit Group has succeeded in gradually gaining market share and becoming the European market leader in its sector thanks to a well thought-out strategy that relies heavily on active partnerships. Although these partnerships are infrequent over time, they are always of high quality and offer real benefits for the group and its profitability. To better understand what this type of alliance consists of, here are two examples of partnerships set up by Geberit in recent years.

Twido

In 2017, the Swiss company Geberit joined forces with the French group Twido, which specializes in water heating systems, among others. The aim of this partnership was to develop a new Geberit water tank called Sigma 8 and its integration with theWCT4-102W model. As a result, the entire W Twido range could be adapted into Geberit Installed. This partnership is a win-win situation for both companies.

ASC

 Also in 2017, Geberit, which makes it a point of honour to promote the basic and further training of employees in the sanitary sector and to safeguard their working environment, launched an educational partnership with the Swiss Tile Association ASC. Through this association, tilers receive in-depth training in the area of shower room sealing with the aim of simplifying and optimising the interaction between sanitary fitters and tilers and promoting contacts with other trades.
