Taking a leading role
The demands of our selected clientele set the bar for our own standards. When it comes to quality, flexibility and innovation, we place the same demands on our business partners and suppliers.
In staying true to our lean management concept, we keep the procurement process as lean as possible. We ensure the economical use of natural resources and always focus on the requirements of our customers. As a result, we limit ourselves to a select few, high-quality business partners who supply us with systems instead of individual components wherever possible.
We cultivate long-term close relationships and integrate our suppliers into the product development early on. This allows their capabilities to keep up with our stringent, regular quality controls.
Please do not hesitate to contact us about working together. Our procurement team will be happy to help you.
Innovation, precision and aesthetics: these are the features that characterize the intelligent solutions we offer to help you design exclusive bathrooms and kitchens.

That is why we develop our faucets in Switzerland and equip them with intuitive functions to ensure that they are at the cutting edge of advanced technology. After all, we share a long-term responsibility with you to use water, life's most important resource, in a respectful way.
Our precision is reflected in 140 years of experience, in the reliable high quality of our products and in our emphatic commitment to Switzerland as a production location. Our cooperation with you and with our employees is based on trust, and we are totally committed to fulfilling your requirements and transforming your ideas into reality.
In terms of aesthetics, we have broken many records. With an ergonomic design, our faucets bring the pure water from the Swiss Alps quite literally within your reach.

Swiss made sustainability
Our products have been consciously produced in Switzerland since 1874. In doing so, we not only take responsibility for our region and environment but also for the high quality standards of our customers.
We have been producing our faucets at our headquarters in Unterkulm in the Canton of Aargau for over 100 years. The management at the time introduced die casting technology back in 1919. In 1957, we commissioned a hot pressing plant and a light metal foundry. In 1963, the company integrated an automatic electroplating system with an ion exchanger to neutralize the washing water. In 1978, the first low-pressure die casting plant developed by KWC was installed in our production. In the 80s, we exported systems to Germany and delivered the first low pressure die casting plants to China in 1987.
Year after year, we have made substantial investments at our production facilities in Unterkulm and thus in Switzerland. We maintain the high quality of our factories by continuously modernizing our facilities and through regular company certifications. We are certified in the following areas: ISO 9001 Quality management systems, ISO 14001 Environment management systems, OHSAS 18001 Occupational safety and health management systems.
