The green innovator spirit is within us all

The #hansfactor: we've been passionate about water for 120 years

Take an inspiring idea and play around with it until you have a long-term solution. Hansgrohe has been doing this for 120 years now. Being inventive, adopting a stance, taking responsibility. The #hansfactor is the green innovator spirit that is within us all, as we believe in a better future. For us, for our children, for our planet.  

120 years of trying new ideas and creating lasting solutions

Hans Grohe, a founding father and visionary pioneer in all things water.
Pioneer Hans Grohe was motivated by his desire to offer people a comfortable showering experience and inspired by the wonderful element of water every single day of his life.

Who was Hans Grohe? A founding father who was passionate about the future. The passion for water began within him in 1901, and is still the driving force behind Hansgrohe to this day. “What do the people of today and tomorrow want to experience in the bathroom?” This is the question we still ask ourselves daily. This approach helps to set us apart and create trends in the industry with high-quality products, that are build to last. 


From an innovator to a global powerhouse of ideas: This is Hans Grohe’s legacy. His first stroke of genius was back in 1928 – the hand shower with a porcelain handle. His invention made the showers of his time safer and more comfortable to use. Long before ‘wellness’ meant anything to anyone.

Innovation. Then and now. #hansfactor

The quality is always improving, even when it comes to sound

The hansgrohe inventors know spray types are crucial for a great all-round showering experience. Even the sound of the water matters. That’s why our researchers at the spray laboratory test how water flows through the taps and showers. At the sound lab, acoustics experts listen to the noises they make. What is the perfect sound of water? The quieter, the better. There is no place for excess noise in our products – that’s our professional commitment. Hear how fantastic it sounds for yourself, with the hansgrohe inspired playlist.
