KWC – Swiss Water Experience
Innovation, precision and aesthetics: these are the features that characterize the intelligent solutions we offer to help you design exclusive bathrooms and kitchens.
KWC's innovation means that you can enjoy the highest level of convenience, easy maintenance and maximum investment security. That is why we develop our faucets in Switzerland and equip them with intuitive functions to ensure that they are at the cutting edge of advanced technology.

In terms of aesthetics, we have broken many records. With an ergonomic design, our faucets bring the pure water from the Swiss Alps quite literally within your reach. It is no coincidence that our designs have received several international awards. So you can rely on the KWC brand for many years to come.
Sustainability made in Switzerland
We have been manufacturing our products in Switzerland since 1874 and have made a conscious decision to continue doing so. This means that we are taking responsibility not only for our region and our environment, but also for meeting our customers' high quality standards.
Our faucets have been produced at our head office in Unterkulm, in the canton of Aargau, for over a century. Die casting technology was introduced to production back in 1919 by the company's then managers. 1957 saw the addition of a hot pressing system and a light metal foundry. In 1963 the company brought in an automatic electroplating system with an ion exchanger to neutralize washing water. In 1978 the first low-pressure permanent mould casting system developed by KWC was installed in our production facility. During the 1980s, we exported systems to Germany and supplied low-pressure permanent mould casting systems to China for the first time in 1987.
Year after year, we invest considerable amounts in our production facilities in Unterkulm, thereby supporting Switzerland as a manufacturing hub. We maintain the high quality of our products by continuously upgrading our systems and regularly obtaining certifications for our company. We are certified according to the following standards: ISO 9001 for quality management systems, ISO 14001 for environmental management systems and OHSAS 18001 for occupational health and safety management systems.
