German company Hartmann Tresore, the biggest safe manufacturer in Europe, is exhibiting a range of products at The Hotel Show including in-room safes, mini-bars and a tracking and auditing device for guestroom master keys.
Hotel News Middle East catches up with Reiner Kaltenback, general manager, Hartmann Tresore Middle East on the sidelines of the event to take a closer look at the company’s offer.
What products and services do you offer for the hospitality industry?
We have in-room safes, mini-bars, as well as the complete set-up for administration and we’re one of the only companies on the market that is offering both product lines under one brand. We’ve been based in Dubai since 2012, we have a showroom in the Gold & Diamond Park where our products can be seen and we have a sales team. We also have an after-sales service and we provide the installation, the delivery and the maintenance.
What products are you exhibiting at The Hotel Show?
We have some new products especially for the 2017 Hotel Show. One is a drawer-type mini-bar, which is in demand for lots of projects and we also have a top-open safe for more convenience for the client. We are also looking at bringing more security into the operation and management of a property – a key management system for proper auditing and tracking of the master keys that are used, not by the guests, but by back-of-house to provide higher security.
What are your plans for the region?
Everyone is focusing on Expo 2020 and so are we because there are a lot of new products in the pipeline – products for the guestroom, as well as for the back-of-house, which needs to be operating properly. We want to take a share of the market of these upcoming projects and we’re also interested in refurbishments. A lot of hotels that have been around already for several years need to be refurbished to be at the level expected by guests from all over the world.
