Tradition and innovation at a glance

Expertise, quality, ideas and visions – since 1901

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 wallbar (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 behind this company from the Black Forest. Primarily, of course, this is about offering benefits and an enjoyable experience to you, the customer.
