Outstanding performance "Down Under": wedi has won the coveted "Australian Enterprise Award" for the first time. The Australian media company APAC Insider awards this award every year to innovative companies in the Asia-Pacific region that offer outstanding solutions in their field. wedi receives the award as a provider of waterproof shower systems.
wedi has been represented in Australia since 2020. "The products are manufactured in Germany. We have four people working in sales on site," says Peter Beckmann from wedi in Australia. "With our quality promise, end consumers focus in Australia, every user can be sure that they enjoy their showering many years to come without having to worry about leaks and mold."
Combining Tradition and Innovation
wedi has been awarded as a company that combines tradition with innovation and solves everyday problems with quality products. This is especially crucial in the area of waterproofing, as a much-cited Australian statistic shows. "It says that waterproofing accounts for only 1.8% of construction costs, but is responsible for 83% of construction defects," says Peter Beckmann. This is also due to the fact that we build things very traditionally with products that are not up-to the current 21st century build. "That's why it's all the more important that people have confidence in wedi quality and that we can personally support them with their individual needs."
"Made in Germany" with a focus on local requirements.
In Australia, wedi offers building boards, system accessories, and benches - all components are coordinated with each other. Many products correspond to those from Europe. Other products are "Made in Germany", but are specifically adapted to local requirements. Sometimes there are also specific adaptations of proven products.
