150 years of ceramics expertise
Sanitec consisted of more than a dozen ceramics companies from across Europe. With the acquisition, Geberit suddenly had over 150 years of experience in ceramics at its disposal. Today, Geberit is not only a European leader in the field of sanitary technology, but also one of the largest manufacturers of ceramic appliances. Each year, 160,000 tonnes of mineral raw materials are manufactured into around 8,000,000 toilets, washbasins, bidets, urinals, shower trays and half pedestals.
Elegant design and sophisticated functionality
In the field of sanitary technology, every plumber is familiar with the Geberit claim “Know-How Installed”. This embodies the reliability of the products together with the company’s passion for quality and technology. While the Geberit ceramic appliances meet the claim perfectly, they also set themselves apart from the competition thanks to a variety of additional features. The toilets and washbasins should also simplify people’s lives with sophisticated additional functions. Geberit toilets, for example, are easy for the plumber to install and can be cleaned quickly by the bathroom user. This brand promise is known as “Design Meets Function”, with technology and design optimally tailored to one another and ceramic appliances in typical Geberit quality.
Geberit ceramic appliances are manufactured in ten production plants across Europe. Here, skilled employees combine traditional craftsmanship with state-of-the-art production technology. Processes are being automated step by step, with digitalisation also playing an increasingly prominent role. Special attention is paid to sustainable production. Since 2015, it has been possible to significantly reduce CO2 emissions at the plants.
When two worlds come together
The manufacturer of sanitary technology has become an important brand for bathroom solutions from a single source. Today, Geberit offers a high-quality product range that combines reliable sanitary technology behind the wall with functional designer products in front of the wall.
