Even a company that has set great precedents with its centuries of tradition once “started small”.
It all began in Hornberg, Germany in 1817 when Georg Friedrich Horn built an earthenware factory initially focused solely on the manufacture of crockery. In 1956, production evolved from earthenware to porcelain, extending the product range to include sanitary ceramics.
Even though we are living in an era of high-tech and automation, when it comes to products with such a high claim to design and function, quality still highly depends on human skill. Duravit continues to maintain a great deal of craftsmanship to ensure this high standard. This applies to the manufacturing of ceramic as well as to all other production areas at Duravit.
Duravit takes into impact on the environment and ensures that, whatever it manufactures, it uses natural resources responsibly.
