The #hansfactor: 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 within all who believe in a better future. For us, for our children, for our planet.

120 years of getting stuck in and trying things out

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 enthusiastic about the future. The passion for water that began with him between hills, forests and streams in 1901 is the driving force behind the Black Forest innovator to this day. “What do the people of today and tomorrow want to experience in the bathroom?” This is the question the makers still ask themselves daily. This approach helps them to set trends in the industry with high-quality products. 

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 the jet type is crucial for a great all-round showering sensation. Even the sound of the water matters. That’s why spray researchers at the spray laboratory feel 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 not much place for noise in premium products – that’s our professional honour. But hansgrohe wouldn’t be hansgrohe if it didn’t recycle even these unwanted acoustics. Hear how fantastic it sounds for yourself.

Be more hans! The future needs you.
