Hansgrohe celebrates 115 years of history, reflecting the evolution of the bath environment, as one of the most innovative companies in this sector.
Hansgrohe is a world leader in terms of design prizes, ahead of brands like Adidas, Porsche and Volkswagen (iF Company Ranking 2016).
Founded in 1901 by Hans Grohe at Schiltach in the Black Forest, today the company has over 3800 employees at 55 locations including branches and sales offices around the world.
From the first height-adjustable shower created by the founder, to the latest “water switch” technology (the Select button radically alters the gestures of activation and stopping of water flow), the German firm has hundreds of worldwide patents. The focus of the research remains water, and how to save it: the Axor Starck Organic faucet is the only one that emits 3.5 lt/min, precisely half of the water used by normal faucets.
Hansgrohe is one of the European companies that has obtained WELL (Water Efficiency Label) certification. The company is an official partner of CasaClima.
