Armitage Shanks was founded in 1817 with a simple objective; to produce sanitaryware of exceptional quality. Now, in the early years of the 21st century, this philosophy, supported by investment in technology and traditional manufacturing skills, still remains at the core of our business.
Armitage Shanks is the most widely recognised sanitaryware brand in the United Kingdom. Our extensive work with architects, builders and legislators has helped us develop the most comprehensive range of commercial bathroom and washroom products in the market today.
The challenges of designing commercial grade sanitaryware exceed those of its consumer counterpart. In addition to attractive aesthetics, commercial designs must satisfy the performance demands of the architect, they must be easy and quick for the installer to fit and they must be cost effective for the building owner to operate long-term.
We believe that great design is the foundation for the success and utility of every Armitage Shanks product. For decades we have worked closely with our valued industrial designers to create commercial sanitaryware and fittings as elegant as they are robust.
