In the early years of the 19th century the company that would become Armitage Shanks was founded with a simple objective; to produce sanitaryware of exceptional quality. Now, in the early years of the 21st century, this philosophy, supported by investment in technology and traditional manufacturing skills, still remains at the core of our business.
For nearly 200 years, Armitage Shanks have been providing innovative solutions for the health care market in Europe. Made in Germany, the Markwik21 Tapware includes features for infection control, commercial durability and ease of installation and maintenance.
In 1969 Armitage Shanks invented and patented the very first Rimless toilet pan. The Portman21 range of sanitaryware features rimless technology for easier cleaning and greater hygiene, as well as one of the most comfortable Accesible Basins for less-abled and wheelchair use in existence today.
