Family-owned since 1925, BLANCO’s humble beginnings included making copper galvanized parts for cookers and hot water bottles with a team of 30 loyal employees. Today, we have produced more than 40 million BLANCO sinks, and are recognized as a world leader in quality, innovation and unsurpassed service. 
Long gone are the times when a sink was merely used for function. These days, it can be the muse for a kitchen – or perhaps an entire home. Because of our dedication to quality, we ensure that all BLANCO sinks are inspected multiple times before earning the BLANCO name. It’s just a part of our commitment to our craft and our customers.

BLANCO commits itself to respect ethical business principles and since 1994 has been a member of the Caux Round Table (CRT), an international network of principled business leaders and companies working to promote a moral capitalism.

BLANCO’s efforts for the protection of the environment go far beyond developing innovations like our SOLON compost system or water-saving products like our HYDRA™ faucet. We believe that our overall focus must be sustainable and intensive beyond any legally required standard. 

To achieve this goal, we use the latest energy-saving exhaust air technology,  returning heat energy back to the production process. Water consumption in our overall process was reduced 50% by installing water-cooling technology, and we continue to reduce production scrap by using the highest quality raw materials, computer-controlled mixing machines, optimized processes and production facilities. We also do not use CFC- and CHC-chasteners. In addition, we proudly achieved a permanent and significant reduction of oil consumption and CO² emission in our facilities and we purposefully purchase from ecological evaluated suppliers. 

With BLANCO’s sustainable and water-saving products, you can make a difference too.

    I guess the number of years they are in the business is enough proof of how committed they are in making quality products. They won’t last that long if they don’t, right? And they really have great designs that are perfect for any home type.
