As announced on July 2020, Franke Group decided to merge the Faber Hoods & Cooking Systems and Franke Kitchen Systems divisions. The new unit is now operative under the name of Franke Home Solutions. The operation follows the Group’s strategy of pooling its expertise in the areas of food preparation and cooking for the residential kitchen with the vision to be present in each and every household with a Franke anchor product. The new Franke Home Solutions division will produce and commercialize products in the food preparation segment, (bowls, sinks and taps etc.) and in the cooking area (hoods and hobs). It also reflects the perspective to leverage the division’s expertise in order to grow its presence in the kitchen.
«With the new division – explains Barbara Borra, President and CEO of the Franke Home Solutions – we have set ourselves the goal of steadily expanding our presence in the kitchen. Our anchor products should act as door openers to expand into new spaces, such as with indoor air quality. Our vision is to be present in every household with our innovative solutions. Franke Home Solutions focuses not only on high quality products and excellent service, but also on the development of intelligent end-to-end solutions. With a complementary, perfectly matched range of products from a single source and simpler sales and service structures, we can support our B2B partners even better and offer our consumers the best possible experience. In doing so, we can create real added value for our stakeholders – business partners, end consumers and employees.»
