Global market leader
Research and development

Research and development are particularly important to us here. From our factory in the Bavarian Forest we always venture out into new territory, think differently and love to think outside the box. On our journey we have been and continue to be accompanied by strong partners who stand by us with a great deal of experience and passion and support us in our further evolution: IK Investment Partners*.

40 years ago we invented the quartz composite sink and we’ve been reinventing ourselves ever since the birth of the company in 1924.

Why? Because we love what we do. We love where we do it – and who we do it for.


Did you know that…

… we as innovation leader have over 90 patents?

… we invented the quartz sink in 1979?

… more than 60% of all sinks in the world are produced using our method?
