With a 117-year history, the Hansgrohe Group is known as a global leader in innovation, quality and design within the bathroom and kitchen industry. Based in Schiltach in Southern Germany, the company is famous for bringing form and function to water with taps, showerheads, and shower systems.
Hansgrohe created the first ever hand-held shower with multiple spray types, the first pull-out kitchen tap, and the first wall bar to hold a hand-held shower. These days, its products are featured in projects around the world, such as the luxurious ocean liner Queen Mary 2, and the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
All over the world, Hansgrohe is synonymous with durable quality products in exceptional design, with ease of use and with intelligent functions. Since 1901, “Made in Germany” has been a recipe for success for the mixer and shower manufacturer. More than 70% of production takes place in Germany: at several plants located in the vicinity of the company’s headquarters in the Black Forest. Hansgrohe delivers to more than 140 countries on all continents, and around 80% of its sales are generated abroad. The company, which has a broad international base, remains devoted to keeping its German production site. Why? The answer from the Black Forest is: “because we count on German expertise and offer our customers a guarantee of quality”. From there, the standards are passed on: continuous quality management ensures top product and service quality in all Hansgrohe plants around the world.
Perfection in form and function – this was, and still is, the Hansgrohe standard. Since 1901, bathroom pioneer Hans Grohe and his descendants have traditionally been one step ahead of their time. Whether this has been inventing the first affordable hand shower (1928) or the wall bar (1953), or ringing in a new shower era with Raindance (2003). Even 115 years after the company was founded, meticulous work is still the driving force in this company from the Black Forest. Primarily, of course, this is about offering benefits and an enjoyable experience to you, the customer.
