Quartz sink and tap manufacturer Schock has acquired Marmorin, Polish manufacturer of bathroom and kitchen products made from quartz composite, for an undisclosed sum.
Founded in 1985 and headquartered in Wschowa, Poland, family-run Marmorin manufactures freestanding baths, washbasins, shower trays and kitchen sinks, which are popular in North America.
Speaking about the acqusition, CEO of Schock Ralf Bloberg commented: “Marmorin offers outstanding products, great material and design know-how and a customer base that will enable us to tap further potential in the United States.
“The acquisition underlines our ambition to expand our position in this key growth market.”
Jakub Hrab, CEO of Marmorin added: “We have known and appreciated each other for a long time.
“With Schock we have found the right partner to drive our growth in the USA.”
Schock was founded in 1924 and, according to the company, is the inventor of the quartz composite sink.
It has customers in more than 70 countries and recently partnered with Rangemaster in the UK to produce the Schock by Rangemaster collection.
The Marmorin acquisition follows Schock’s recent change in ownership to investment firm Triton and furthers the German sink manufacturer’s geographical expansion.
