Water. Over seventy percent of the earth's surface is awash in water, and it is a part of our daily lives. Most people don't think twice about this essential element, but at Hansgrohe, it is our passion. Since 1901, the Hansgrohe name has been synonymous with excellence in the shower, kitchen and bath.
For us, the shower is not just part of a busy day; it's quality time to be savored and enjoyed. A kitchen faucet should be beautiful as well as provide high-quality performance. The bathroom is more than a functional part of your home; it is a declaration of your individuality. Hansgrohe's brands enrich the experience of water and enhance your home, creating total refinement for your senses and well being.
From the beginning, our focus on quality and design has set the standard for innovation around the world. Emerging as a leading European supplier with Hans Grohe's original workshop in Germany's Black Forest, today, Hansgrohe operates 9 manufacturing and design centers and 20 major offices worldwide to serve customers in over 70 countries.
Our fully integrated US facilities encompass administrative and customer-service offices, comprehensive manufacturing operations, and a warehousing and fulfillment center. Hansgrohe-USA is also the world's largest supplier of showerheads, producing over four million units per year.
In addition, our modern teaching facilities, the Aquademies, leverage the most modern technologies to teach visitors about our products, exemplifying our devotion to customer satisfaction and service.
