Award winning bathroom retailer Ripples headed to Switzerland recently with one of the world's leading bathroom manufacturers, Laufen, whose headquarters are in Laufen near Basel in Switzerland.

The trip included a full day's tour of the Laufen ceramic and brassware factories, led by international training manager Erik Holznienkemper, a look around the impressive Laufen showroom and a chance to gets 'hands-on' with the manufacturing process.
Neil Curtis (senior designer at Ripples) remarks: "I, personally found the craftsmanship that goes into the ceramic and brassware production fascinating. The tours were really interesting and provided a valuable source of information. The visit to Laufen has allowed me to develop my understanding of the brand".
