Wallgate Limited, a market leading specialist in the design and manufacture of robust washrooms and sanitaryware solutions, has appointed Australia’s leading commercial tapware designer and supplier, Galvin Engineering, as its sole Australasian distributor.
The addition of the Wallgate brand provides Galvin with increased access into a number of Australasian markets including commercial, secure, and healthcare as well as mental health and custodial environments. It also reinforces Galvin’s purpose of working closely with leading designers and contractors to help them build world facilities for better health and safer communities.
Already established across these various markets as a tapware supplier, Galvin will now be able to offer a comprehensive package of highly innovative and suitable washroom equipment by having access to Wallgates range of sanitaryware and electronic water management systems.
Galvin Engineering has a team of over 80 people based in offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane that design and supply specialised taps and fixtures to commercial health and correctional building projects. Sector expert Marco Bevilacqua will lead a new specialist team that will concentrate solely on the secure market out of the Melbourne office.
As part of the new arrangement, Wallgate will be distributing Galvin’s healthcare range in the UK and wider global markets. Specifically, the company will be responsible for supporting the GalvinCare, anti-ligature tapware and fixtures range (www.galvincare.com).
Marco Bevilacqua comments:
“This is a very exciting time for us – these appointments broaden reach and underline our ambition and focus to meet customers’ needs on a global scale. We are proud to distribute Wallgate’s robust, innovative washroom and sanitaryware range in our markets.”
This appointment serves to reinforce Wallgate’s commitment to the region and provide its Australasian customers with an enhanced service, both technically and commercially.”
Wallgate managing director, Trevor Powell comments:
“We are very pleased to welcome Galvin as a new distributor for our product range in the Australasian market. They bring a track record of delivering high quality products and have a proven reputation for markets that are key to us.
Expansion and innovation are key messages that we share with Galvin. This is already proven through Galvin working closely with us and our North American distributor, Intersan to develop and drive new initiatives in the North American behavioural health market which includes Mexico, Canada and the USA.”
