Brisbane, Queensland – A new innovative product that solves your household power problems has teamed up with Australia and New Zealand’s large distributor to keep up with its growing demand.
Point Pod, which seamlessly blends power outlets and USB ports into your kitchen and bathroom bench tops, made its Australian market debut in August 2018.
It has now partnered with Häfele, Australia and New Zealand’s biggest distributor, to spread its reach into the Oceania market.
Point Pod was designed and developed by Brisbane builder, Cameron Singer, who was frustrated by the limited power solutions in the market.
“I developed Point Pod two years ago out of my own frustration of the limited options available,” says Mr Singer. “After renovating my own house, I was disappointed with what was available to improve access to power for my island bench. There were products online, but they looked so cheap and flimsy in a kitchen we’d spent a lot of money renovating.”
With a simple press, Point Pod’s power points and USB sockets emerge for use, but unlike other power options, it blends seamlessly into your bench top.
“I’m excited for Point Pod’s next phase, working alongside Häfele. Häfele’s commitment to innovation made them the number choice for our distribution partner,” Mr Singer says.
“Our distribution agreement gives us access to a larger chunk of the market, but it also means we can focus on manufacturing and developing further products.”
Mr Singer says his customers will now have access to Häfele’s huge selection of cabinetmaking solutions. “Häfele is always bringing new innovative products to the market, so their customers are always on the cutting edge of what’s available, and we’re excited to be part of it.”
“Häfele also offers us the opportunity to showcase our product to its global Häfele subsidiaries, which will be doing at Interzum 2019 in Germany in May.”
Point Pod officially launched its first two products – Point Pod Multi and Point Pod Compact – on August 13, 2018.
