Severin to provide the finest tasting water with BWT
SEVERIN, the renowned German quality brand for household electrical appliances is expanding its product programme to include water filters for the finest tasting drinking water, coffee and tea. Under a cooperation arrangement in the field of distribution, BWT – Best Water Technology, the European market leader in water technology, will serve as the company’s exclusive supplier of premium water filters.
For the commercial partners of SEVERIN and BWT, this co-operation arrangement offers the possibility of supplying a large area with co-branded premium table water filters, including the unique Magnesium 2+ technology and filter cartridges for coffee machines. In addition to the mutual transfer of know-how, the agreement also provides for common advertising measures and point-of-sale campaigns. In 2011, SEVERIN plans to launch a “powered by BWT” product line, which will be entirely equipped with superior BWT filter technology.
Only 0.8% of a total of 1,386 million cubic metres of water on the world´s surface is available as drinking water in the form of rivers, lakes and ground water. The rest of the water is salt or freshwater made up of glaciers, snow and ice. With more than 2,800 employees in over 70 subsidiaries and affiliates, BWT, on a daily basis, researches, develops and works on innovative solutions for the treatment of 98.5% of the water available globally with the aim of ensuring a maximum degree of safety, hygiene and health in daily contact with our elixir of life.
Thanks to the new BWT ´Best Water´ filter cartridges that are used directly in the water tanks of coffee machines and the BWT ´Perfect Water´ table water filter, all lovers of coffee and tea will benefit. With the BWT MG2+ technology, water is not only filtered, but at the same time enriched with valuable magnesium, offering customers an even more intense and completely new taste experience.
