Insights from a pioneer in installation technology at Geberit

For more than 35 years, Geberit engineer Mario von Ballmoos has dealt with the question of how sanitary technology should be installed behind the prewall. This has resulted in solutions that have become established across the industry.

Installation technology from Geberit enjoys a first-class reputation in the European sanitary industry. The system solutions have been optimised and expanded over several decades and reflect the standards, regulations and conventions seen in the various markets. They allow the plumber to offer high-quality, durable solutions at competitive conditions, and to install them professionally.

«Since ceramics specialists and sanitary engineers began working side by side on the same project at Geberit, we have been able to influence the entire product chain. This will lead to even better solutions»
explains a convinced Mario von Ballmoos, who previously headed up the Installation Systems product line.

As development engineer and later as head of the Installation Systems product line, Mario von Ballmoos played a significant role in the success of Geberit installation technology. He is currently retired, lives in Switzerland and Taiwan, and supports Geberit in an advisory capacity on the further expansion of business in Asia.
