Thimpu, Novem­ber 19th, 2015: Tak­ing for­ward their mis­sion of ‘Gra­cious Liv­ing’, Kohler Kitchen and Bath launches its first ever store in Olarangchu, Thim­phu, Bhutan. The new Kohler show­room is a state of the art, one of a kind store offering dis­tinc­tive style, ar­ray of choices and an un­com­pro­mis­ing prom­ise of per­for­mance. The store houses a va­ri­ety of Kohler prod­ucts such as baths, faucets, toi­lets, shower heads and pan­els across dif­fer­ent price ranges and is spread over 700 sq. ft.

Kohler is a global leader in kitchen and bath prod­ucts. As a brand, Kohler stands for De­sign & in­no­va­tion, which lends to prod­uct ex­pe­ri­ences that are unique. With a range of Artist Edi­tions® prod­ucts which are hand crafted and in­spired from rich cul­tures across the globe to a fully au­to­mated show­er­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with DTV+ and dif­fer­en­ti­ated colors like Black in the bath­room with the Veil wall hung, KOHLER brings unique ex­pe­ri­ences to con­sumers ev­ery day.

The mis­sion of our com­pany is to en­hance the level of ‘Gra­cious Liv­ing’ for ev­ery­body. To­day, with more than 50 man­u­fac­tur­ing lo­ca­tions on 6 con­ti­nents, more than 30,000 Kohler as­so­ciates are able to present the con­cept of gra­cious liv­ing in ev­ery cor­ner of the world.

The well-heeled con­sumer in Bhutan is not very dif­fer­ent from other de­vel­oped mar­kets and are heavy spenders on high qual­ity homes, interiors, cloth­ing, ed­u­ca­tion and travel to­day. With the evolved life­styles, Bhutan’s grow­ing emerg­ing mar­kets, grow­ing hos­pi­tal­ity and ex­po­sure to in­ter­na­tional brands, con­sumers are seek­ing lux­ury. This leaves a great po­ten­tial for the mar­ket and pur­vey­ors of lux­ury goods.

The new show­room has been built keep­ing in mind the ris­ing de­mand for prod­ucts with mod­ern, aes­thetic de­signs and mul­ti­func­tional util­i­ties. This store com­pli­ments Kohler’s aims to be the one stop des­ti­na­tion for those in­clined to­wards a lux­u­ri­ous and so­phis­ti­cated bathing ex­pe­ri­ence, well matched with dura­bil­ity and style. The life­style of con­sumers is chang­ing and there is a new wave mov­ing to­wards making bath­rooms look less like bath­rooms and more like liv­ing rooms. As bath­rooms con­tinue to evolve, the prod­ucts in­stalled are also evolv­ing in terms of the de­sign, tech­nol­ogy and crafts­man­ship in­volved. Prod­ucts as sim­ple as bath and toi­lets are em­ploy­ing tech­nol­ogy such as chro­mather­apy, UV clean­ing and touch in­ter­face.

Speak­ing on the in­au­gu­ra­tion, Salil Sadanan­dan, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Kohler Kitchen & Bath South Asia and Sub-Sa­ha­ran Africa, said, “Bhutan is an im­por­tant mar­ket for us and the open­ing of our first store is a re­flec­tion of our com­mit­ment. We are thrilled to ex­pand our pres­ence glob­ally with a pow­er­ful port­fo­lio of prod­ucts. Kohler is tap­ping on the up­surge of the lux­ury mar­ket and is com­mit­ted to de­vel­op­ing dy­namic de­signs for projects here. Through this launch we be­lieve in pro­vid­ing prod­ucts that meet the re­quire­ments of dis­cern­ing cus­tomers and offering user ben­e­fits as a re­sult of con­tin­u­ous in­no­va­tion and state of the art tech­nolo­gies.”
