Quality is the top priority
The system has always been produced in two Swiss locations – Givisiez and Rapperswil-Jona. The technical expertise required to manufacture multilayer pipes and fittings has been continuously built up in the Geberit plants over several decades. Four materials are used in the manufacture of multilayer pipes – plastic granules, aluminium and two types of bonding agents. The manufacturing process itself requires a high level of precision to be exercised in every single production step. This also holds true for the production of the plastic fittings, which are manufactured in an injection moulding process. As a result, products of both plants undergo regular quality tests, which are carried out within the operational production facilities and in the in-house laboratories. In this way, the smallest defect is identified and rectified immediately.
