About HANSA

Hansa Armaturen GmbH specializes in the production of high-quality and innovative sanitary fittings for bathrooms and kitchens. The German company with over 100 years of tradition behind it, appreciated by trade professionals, sets standards in the sanitary fittings sector right across Europe.

HANSA's corporate identity is inextricably connected with the elixir of life: water. This makes the fitting a central element in both kitchens and bathrooms: Without a way of introducing water into a building, hygiene, wellness, cooking, cleaning, drinking it and much more are not possible. HANSA's product solutions provide for water installation. HANSA makes it possible to plan and control water through convenient and appealing appliances. And last but not least, HANSA reflects a young, fresh lifestyle.

The Finnish fittings manufacturer Oras Ltd., the market leader in Northern Europe, and HANSA have together formed the Oras Group since 2014. At present the concern with its subsidiaries and representatives employs around 1400 people in more than 60 countries.

Philosophy

Partnership & service

living water

A long time ago, HANSA was founded with the objective of making people's lives that bit better. Over one hundred years have elapsed since then – whereby the commitment to inspire people with our experience and know-how has not diminished at all. For there is a great deal more to our business than faucets and shower thermostats. It is about providing for daily enjoyment and benefits, not merely by meeting the expectations of our customers and partners, but by exceeding them.


We work towards long-term partnerships based on mutual trust

We are fully committed to the three-stage retail channel via wholesalers and sanitary trade specialists. And that means providing support to our partners however we can: For instance by means of thoroughly thought-through product development that makes for easy and safe installation of the fittings solutions, by means of individualized training courses and by means of targeted marketing measures for installers. We are completely convinced that our success is a joint venture – with the focus always on the satisfaction of our customers. So using high-quality materials and production processes to match goes without saying.

Technology & design

We deliver solutions that make your life simpler while looking good with inspired designs.

HANSA products provide many different ways of accounting for individual taste and bringing benefits into your bathroom and kitchen. In addition to a range of designs, sizes and operating concepts, innovative technologies and special features combine to make daily life easier and more enjoyable. The three product series HANSA|EDITION, HANSA|LIVING and HANSA|HOME cover a broad range of options for beautiful bathroom and kitchen fittings in several product families. Amongst other things, our touchlessly operated fittings with precise PSD sensor technology impress young and old. The water seems to flow by magic. Our ALESSI SELECTION provides a range of striking designer items that combine functionality and intuitive operation with intelligent inspiration.


Health & safety

Because we are concerned about your well-being

HANSA processes exclusively high-quality, durable and non-hazardous materials and does all it can to guarantee and maintain people's safety and health. For instance, we sustain the quality of drinking water through the use of dezincification-resistant and corrosion-resistant DR brass as well as plastics with German KTW certification. All fittings and shower systems are completely UBA (German Federal Environment Agency) compliant. Also, the HANSAPROTEC label for selected kitchen fittings label guarantees that all brass components that come into contact with drinking water have a very small lead content of less than 0.3%. Our thermostats with the THERMO COOL function ensure showering without any drawbacks: They are safer because the housing only heats up to a small degree.


Ecology & sustainability

We think a long way ahead

HANSA stands for responsible use of resources and conservation of the environment. We want to keep the consumption of water and energy as low as possible by means of sustainable solutions – that often enough prove to set new standards. This starts with manufacturing processes that help preserve raw materials and save energy and proceeds to touchlessly operated faucets that automatically help to conserve the valuable resource of water. All HANSA fittings meet internationally agreed environmental standards.
