NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio, Feb. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Moen, a leader in water experiences in the home, has partnered with Nebia, a Silicon Valley-based startup, to work together on shower innovations that will impact how people around the world enjoy and conserve nature's most precious resource. To kick off their relationship, on February 12, Moen and Nebia will launch the Nebia Spa Shower 2.0 on Kickstarter, the first of many collaborations between the companies. This partnership includes joint product development and distribution plans. Moen is also leading a Series A investment in Nebia.
"Moen is changing the game when it comes to helping consumers better understand and appreciate water. Whether it's partnerships like Nebia, or the development of new technologies, we're using innovation and artful design to transform how people interact with this resource – and this is just the beginning," said Mark-Hans Richer, senior vice president, chief marketing and innovation officer, Fortune Brands Global Plumbing Group.
This latest endeavor is a new and improved version of Nebia's original spa shower and provides a hotter shower with the feeling of more pressure, while saving 65 percent of water compared to a conventional shower. It's available in two brand-new finishes of high-grade powder coated aluminum, Matte Silver and Matte Black.
"We are on a mission to build a more sustainable future, by building products that people love to use. Moen has long been a leader in our industry and together we can bring meaningful innovation and provide even greater impact for people around the world. Nebia customers have already saved an estimated 100+ million gallons of water, and are on our way to saving one billion gallons in the next two years," said Philip Winter, Nebia co-Founder and CEO.
The Nebia collaboration is another important example of Moen leading the charge into a new era of monumental change in how people encounter water every day. Earlier this year, Moen announced its partnership with another startup to offer more consumers innovative ways to detect leaks and manage their water supply.
