The name Armitage Shanks has long been synonymous with quality British Bathrooms. The company's roots can be traced back to 1850 when the first sanitaryware was manufactured. This was at a time when few properties had mains water pumped to them, there was no water borne sanitation system and hot water was a luxury enjoyed by the very rich.
The company that became Armitage Shanks was founded in 1817 by Thomas Bond in Armitage, Staffordshire. The Armitage "sanitary pottery manufacture" became a successful UK toilet manucturer. In 1969 Armitage merged with Shanks Holdings Limited, a competing "sanitary engineering company" established at Barrhead near Glasgow, Scotland in 1878, producing the famous brand name Armitage Shanks. In February 1999 Armitage Shanks became part of the American Standard group of companies.
