A lot has changed in the seven decades since KEUCO was founded in 1953, but the goal and vision of the early days has remained – to make bathrooms that are both beautiful and comfortable…

Continuing the KEUCO story where it began, the company continues to develop and produce quality products in Germany and the headquarters are still located in Hemer, Westphalia, where it was originally formed in 1953. The original focus was on bathroom accessories, but the brand has continuously expanded, revised and supplemented its range and today offers an abundant range of fittings, accessories, mirror cabinets, washbasins and bathroom furniture all proudly  ‘Made in Germany’.

The brand has a history of championing design and designers to make a statement in the bathroom. The 1970’s saw the trendsetting range by German designer Luigi Colani , the most famous designer in Germany at the time who worked alongside the brand to develop the first revolutionary bathroom design with accessories, light and mirrors all made by KEUCO.

The next decade saw the Solitair cabinet Sesam striking a strong pose and becoming an icon in the bathroom, while moving on to 2023 with the launch of AXESS  with Studio FA Porsche, KEUCO continues to make bold design statements in the bathroom through its collaborations.

The design integrity as well as the continuity championed by the business, means the employees consider themselves to be part of an extended family business, one that values its employees and understands that it is the combination of the company’s historical knowledge with individual expertise that creates the KEUCO brand.
