CID Awards 2015

Meet the Awards sponsors: Zip Water

In 1970, Zip Industries, a privately owned Australian business, installed the world’s first boiling water faucet that provided instant boiling water from an under-sink pressurised cylinder. Headquartered in Sydney and with distributors worldwide, Zip has recently set up its operations in the Middle East.

Sponsorship for CID Awards is the first event it has been involved with in the UAE, so as Gizem Imer, regional sales manager Middle East explains “it holds a very important place” in its heart.

“It gives us great pride to sponsor the CID Awards 2015, as it is one of the region’s most esteemed events and we cannot think of any better way to introduce ourselves and to show our commitment and appreciation to the design industry in the UAE. Looking back on the past year, the projects that have been brought to life show just how much the UAE is focusing on innovation, and its openness to new concepts. Award ceremonies, such as the CID Awards, are very important as they provide inspiration and a fantastic platform to recognise the individuals and teams who are setting the standard in the UAE design industry,” says Imer.

“To create a visionary space aligned with customer needs and environmental concerns takes a great degree of commitment. Whether it is designing a hotel, an office, a restaurant or a residence, a successful outcome for all stakeholders requires a collaborative effort by passionate people. There are great teams, creating great work. Judging from last year’s nominees, it will be very hard for judges to make a final decision as to which are the best.”

Zip Industries is starting a new era as “Zip Water”. Integrity, reliability and quality best describe Zip products.

“We have a new branding, new designs and we recently set-up our office in Dubai. The Zip HydroTap is a must for every modern kitchen, providing style, convenience and wellness to the world’s most desirable spaces. Zip products are regularly specified and supplied all over the world, and we have now been providing products to the Middle East market for over 10 years. At Zip, we are passionate about providing outstanding customer care and we are clearly demonstrating our commitment to customers in the region by finally setting up a dedicated Zip office to ensure we deliver to our promise,” concludes Imer.
