If there’s one thing certain in life, it’s that change is always a constant. For us here at Zip Water that means looking to the ways in which people live and how it is evolving. Several areas that are progressing ahead at a rapid pace are our living and working spaces. Our offices are becoming ever more cosy, hospitable and home-like. Meanwhile, for many people living in urban areas, our homes are adapting to the ever-denser surrounds.

What we’ve discovered, however, is that multi-residential living does not have to mean compromise, particularly when the details are considered, such as the seamless integration of the Zip HydroTap. We’re also finding that the convenience afforded by HydroTaps to our home and work environments is just as useful in other settings too, such as hospitality spots and even healthcare. All of this boils down to a relentless pursuit for innovation. Just as the world’s best interior designers, specifiers, developers and architects are pushing the boundaries of design; we’re looking for ways to continually push the envelope through our products. Without wanting to give too much away, we can confirm that this exploration has led to some incredible new products – the likes of which will be making a splash in 2019.

There have been lots of exciting changes happening that we’re so proud to share with you. The last 12 months have seen Zip Water continue our global expansion, most notably into the USA. As such a large market, with a diverse range of needs, Zip Water has been able to showcase the benefits and convenience in having instant filtered boiling, chilled and sparkling water on tap. Plus our ongoing commitment to sustainability ensures that homes, offices, aged care facilities and schools are equipped for the future no matter the changes that abound.

– Tom Fisher, Marketing Director and John Doumani, President International
