For a long time the name Armitage Shanks has been associated with quality bathrooms and have been at the forefront in design and manufacture of quality products for the bathroom and washroom.
The company began life as Armitage Sanitaryware in around 1850 when they first became involved in the manufacture of sanitary ware at a time when pumped water was virtually unknown. This was also at a time when what water borne sanitation as well as hot water existed was a privilege of the very rich.
Armitage over the years have been at the forefront in design and manufacture of quality products for the bathroom and washroom. They continued to consolidate their position in the market when they merged in 1969 with one of their main competitors, Shanks Holdings, established at Barrhead near Glasgow in 1878. This produced the now famous name of Armitage Shanks to become one of the largest makers of sanitaryware in the UK. In 1999, Armitage Shanks became part of the global group of companies American Standard.
Today's bathroom has moved from being purely functional, now we consider it to be a room in which it is possible for you to express yourself. This is now a room where in the morning the family prepare themselves for the day ahead. Returning from work, or in the evenings, the bathroom is a sanctuary where you can relax and recharge your batteries.
Now as part of Ideal Standard they have the opportunity to create bathroom designs, allowing everyone to express their own particular flair. Armitage Shanks is dedicated to enhancing the total environment of your bathroom, achieved through beauty and innovation.
