The participants will learn how ADA Law came into being, what it is, who regulates it, who benefits from it, and how it impacts design for sanitary plumbing and facilities in the hospitality industry, specifically in the sleeping units (not common areas) of transient lodging.
The Tradition of the Duravit brand
Even a company that has set great precedents with its centuries of tradition once “started small”.
It all began in Hornberg, Germany in 1817 when Georg Friedrich Horn built an earthenware factory initially focused solely on the manufacture of crockery. In 1956, production evolved from earthenware to porcelain, extending the product range to include sanitary ceramics. This provided a platform for future success and also introduced the sanitary world to a new name: Duravit. Today, Duravit AG operates at an international level and boasts 10 production plants with a workforce of more than 5,000 employees worldwide.
The Region behind the Duravit brand
One source of Duravit’s tremendous strength, which it continues to cultivate, is its deep connection to the Black Forest. This is why Duravit is, for example, a partner and sponsor of the Black Forest natural park, a large nature reserve that is also Germany’s largest natural park. Additionally, Duravit does everything possible to protect natural elements like water, air and soil – a process that starts with resource-saving manufacturing methods, which employ technologies such as water treatment and heat recovery. The logical continuation of this is manifested in the products themselves, which are water-saving.
Even with new products, Duravit takes into impact on the environment and ensures that, whatever it manufactures, it uses natural resources responsibly.
And these efforts have certainly been recognized: Duravit AG has officially been certified for its commitment to the environment in accordance with ISO 14001.
