Duravit USA Moves into New Offices and Warehouse Space


February 21, 2017

After celebrating 20 years of business in 2016, Duravit continues its push in the North American market, expanding its USA headquarters to a larger space in Duluth, Georgia. Just in time for Duravit’s worldwide 200th anniversary, the new facility represents a critical step for continued growth.

“Duravit has had a very positive 20 years of development in North America, and now we’re taking our commitment to this market to the next level,” said Duravit USA President Tim Schroeder. “The larger facility will benefit our customers nationwide and also allow our dedicated Duravit staff to do their best work, supporting the products and people we work with every day.”

The 120,000-sq.-ft. space houses Duravit’s inventory of ceramics, acrylics, and furniture with room for future growth. The new facility is a stand-alone building that ensures new efficiencies in logistics with the intent to streamline Duravit’s fulfillment to accounts throughout North America.

“We’re incredibly fortunate that we have sales partners who believe in the Duravit brand and are ambassadors for us throughout North America,” said Schroeder. “This expansion is not just an investment in us, but also an investment in them.”

The primary offices host the company’s 25 employees and include an open area for product exhibits and sales partner trainings, acting as an immersive classroom designed to fully house Duravit’s library. Designers and architects can experience products firsthand, and the site will also serve as the first stop for Duravit‘s latest collections as they come in from Germany.

The customer service team resides in their own wing where they can respond to all questions and requests in real-time. Throughout the offices, there are nods to Duravit’s German heritage, including Black Forest wood tables and the brand’s Wood Grouse inspired logo. Duravit USA‘s previous headquarters were also in Duluth. The new address is 2635 North Berkeley Lake Road, Duluth, Georgia.
