ZURICH (Reuters) - Geberit is seeing increased demand for its electronic taps and touchless toilet flushes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Chief Executive Christian Buhl said on Tuesday.

“We have seen a substantial increase in demand in the last couple of weeks and months for touchless products,” Buhl told analysts and journalists in a conference call after the company’s second quarter results.

“We have further products coming in the area of touchless actuations,” he added.
