Kudos Showers owner announces rebrand

SanSwiss Group, the parent company of UK-based shower manufacturer Kudos, has announced a rebrand ahead of its appearance at Salone del Mobile in Milan next month.

The company will now be known as Ronal Bathrooms, a subsidiary of the Ronal Group which is based in Härkingen/Gunzgen, Switzerland.

Kudos products will continue to be branded Kudos and sold as Kudos but, as of April 1, the trading name will become Ronal Bathrooms UK Ltd.

Speaking about the rebrand Oliver Brauner, CEO of The Ronal Group said: “The newly named Ronal Bathrooms division for bathrooms and wellness will grow gradually. It complements the main business of Ronal Wheels, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of light alloy wheels for cars and commercial vehicles.”

In a statement the company said that the name change recognises the growth of the company through key acquisitions, including Kudos, Glass 1989 and Karol Italia, and better reflects its expansive product and brand portfolio. It will official unveil its new brand identity and brand family at the Salone del Mobile exhibition in Milan next month.

Olivier Gunther and Sebastian Hainz, co-managing directors (pictured left) of the newly named bathroom and wellness division, Ronal Bathrooms AG, said of the development: “The name change with a new brand identity recognises the growth of the company and also the fact that we have developed a good deal further in the direction of a comprehensive solution provider and reliable partner for the bathroom and wellness sector with the expansion of the brand and product portfolio and the acquisitions of Glass 1989 (Italy), Karol Italia (Italy) and Kudos Group (Great Britain) last year. We will continue to grow with Ronal Bathrooms, investing anti-cyclically in the market and, together with our Swiss parent company, communicate a clear and long-term commitment to the sanitary market in our external presentation.”
