KWC Premieres at Billie Brenner Ltd

Boston's Award-Winning Showroom to Feature All KWC Lines

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2010) -  KWC AMERICA is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Billie Brenner Ltd to offer its exclusive line of Swiss-technology kitchen and bathroom fixtures to the greater Boston area.

The pairing is the perfect fit. The prestigious KWC has supplied faucets to the most demanding customers starting with the Hotel Ritz in Paris over 100 years ago. KWC has long since been world-renowned for its precision and styling. And for over 40 years Billie Brenner Ltd -- an award-winning company recognized as "Best of Boston Bath Supplier" -- has been acknowledged by local designers and contractors as one of the best kitchen and bath showrooms in New England.

David Delle Monache, General Manager of KWC AMERICA, notes that Billie Brenner offers the perfect venue to showcase KWC's high-end line of kitchen and bath faucets. "Billie Brenner understands the importance of design and quality in faucets, that's very apparent," Delle Monache said. "The showroom has a certain class and professionalism you find in only the world's finest locations."

Robin Brenner, President of Billie Brenner Ltd, said that KWC is the ideal addition to their showroom at the Boston Design Center. "Our focus has always been to showcase the finest in faucet designs from all over the world, and KWC is certainly one of the best," Brenner said. "What I admire most is how well-engineered their products are -- they were the first to perfect the pull-out spray faucet, after all. The company pays attention to the details to develop precision faucets that are stylish and well-designed."

One faucet that Brenner is particularly excited about is the KWC ONO highflex™, a precision kitchen faucet with a flexible spray nozzle that produces a true laminar flow. The chrome unit is accented with a distinct black arch. Brenner said that adding color detailing to fixtures will be the trend in coming years.

"Black and white accents are making a comeback," Brenner said. "What I really like about the ONO highflex™ is that it combines the classic black look of the feeder hose with the sleek chrome design. It's unique, yet at the same time seems familiar and right at home in the modern kitchen."

The KWC ONO highflex™ is a dual-function faucet with a flat spout that swivels 360 degrees and an innovative, flexible spray hose that immediately returns to position after use. The two-stage operating system, which is perfect for the semi-professional kitchen, is also available in stainless steel.

Brenner added that another trend lately is to match -- or at least complement -- fixtures in the bathroom with those in the kitchen. This helps pull together design themes throughout the house. Again, KWC delivers, with the upcoming North American introduction of bath lines for KWC AVA and KWC ONO. Both lines are already well established in the kitchen.

"KWC has an amazing line of both kitchen and bathroom fixtures that subtly complement each other," Brenner said. "I'm always looking for companies who do this because it makes it easier for homeowners and designers to match their fixtures. The more choices a company has, the better."

Billie Brenner will feature all of KWC's dozen-plus faucet lines for kitchen and bath like ONO, EVE, AVA, DECO, and EDGE. Some have multiple design options within the same family. This is an added bonus in today's design, according to Brenner. "One of the newest trends in kitchen design is his-and-her work areas," Brenner said.

"Homeowners can choose fixtures that are unique but harmonious to help clearly define each other's spaces. KWC's innovation in both design and performance gives homeowners some wonderful choices. "

"Quality and precision are not matters of taste, but design style certainly is," said Delle Monache. "Our goal is to give homeowners as many options as possible so they can enjoy our Swiss made faucets in the style of their own choosing."
