Made in New Zealand
We are from New Zealand, an island surrounded by the ocean. As an island nation, we think that taking care of our most precious resource - water - is extremely important. Water shortage is real in many regions around the world and it won't get better unless we do something. Spending less water on your daily shower is a great starting point.
No matter where you are in the world, if you have a Methven shower, you are connected to New Zealand. There are 115 employees who work on-site at Methven's manufacturing facility in Auckland and 14 members of the company's design and innovation team who are responsible for the look and feel of the products. It sounds a lot but in fact, we are still a small team, a family. Many of our employees have worked with us for over 25 years. A significant number of our employees live locally so we invest a lot of effort in maintaining water quality and protect wildlife around the area. Now we want to bring our values globally.
All Rua shower handsets will be manufactured at our factory in Auckland, New Zealand, which means we have full control and understanding of the Rua handset manufacturing process. And to all our backers we offer a lifetime warranty on Rua.
