Grohe AG is a global manufacturer of sanitary products producing premium bathroom showers, taps and accessories and kitchen taps and accessories. They currently employ in the region of 9,000 people and turn over around EUR 1,400 million. In addition to the prestigious Grohe brand, Grohe also has a 72% shareholding in the Chinese manufacturer Joyou AG.
It was announced at the end of September that Grohe AG (and the Joyou shareholding) was to be purchased by Japanese company Lixil. Lixil have a number of brands in Japan and North America (through their purchase of American Standard) but the purchase of Grohe marks its acceleration of penetration in the European market.
Trading Depot is a leading on-line retailer of plumbing and bathroom supplies and has supplied Grohe Taps and Grohe Showers since it started trading in 2008. We love the quality and premium finish that every Grohe product is manufactured too and the value it adds to any bathroom. A constantly evolving and updating product range means that any advance in technology and styling are soon available and often these are driven by Grohe themselves.
