German sink manufacturer celebrates anniversary

German sink and kitchen tap manufacturer Blanco is celebrating its 90th anniversary, since production started.

Founded by Heinrich Blanc, the company began making stainless sinks in Oberderdingen, Germany, and alongside these it has since added Silgranit composite models and fireclay ceramic sinks.

Blanco now supplies 120 countries from its head office in Germany and established a purpose-built HQ, warehouse and distribution centre in Hertfordshire.

The company supplies kitchen showrooms, builders’ merchants and department stores, such as John Lewis and it has been honoured with awards for selected sink models, which number the Red Dot,  iF Product Design and Interior Innovation Awards.

Starting its anniversary year exhibiting at the trade kitchen show LivingKitchen in Cologne, Blanco showcased its latest products and materials.

During 2015, Blanco will be introducing anniversary sales promotions, 3D showroom tour and social media and direct mail e-marketing.
