New Zealand’s High Commissioner to Singapore, Dr Jonathan Austin and Regional Director of New Zealand High Commission for East Asia, Ms Clare Wilson, witnessed the signing ceremony in Singapore. Methven Chief Executive Mr David Banfield signed the agreements with Uniquos Pte Ltd and two other distributors, in a strategic move which sees each distributor targeting different market segments.
Creating amazing water experiences since 1886, Methven has a strong history of innovation and design, having successfully commercialised a number of international award-winning bathroom technologies including Satinjet® and Aurajet®.

The Aio Aurajet Shower range, awarded 'Best of the Best' at 2017 Red Dot Awards, is Methven’s most advanced, most invigorating shower experience ever. Its breakthrough spray technology and unique halo shape are intrinsically linked in an enduring union of form and function.
Aurajet delivers 20% more spray force and twice the water contact on the skin than conventional showers — this continuing Methven’s commitment to savings on water and energy bills for consumers without compromising the shower experience. Aio is the most awarded range in Methven’s rich 131 year history, bringing the total to 23 national and international awards for the Aio range.
Methven’s Group Chief Executive Officer Mr David Banfield said “Following a major partnership with Malaysian listed company Impuda Bhd in July 2017, the appointment of 3 partners in Singapore will add significant value to Methven’s growth strategies in South-east Asia. We have always recognised that Singapore represents a significant opportunity with our world-leading shower technology. We are proud to take the Methven brand, products and technologies onto the world stage and prove that technically and commercially, we are able to challenge the best.”
