IT IS A RECOGNITION THAT WE NEVER TAKE LIGHTLY.
Because we see our life’s work for what it truly is: the opportunity to make a product of perfection. One that connects all who use it, with the one true source of life on this planet … a source we in Switzerland have been blessed with in great abundance.
Through design, through a tremendous sense of aesthetic, through precision and handcrafting, and yes, through a good deal of blood, sweat and tears, we recognised a long time ago one undeniable truth:
AT KWC, OUR DESTINY WAS NEVER TO INVENT THE TAP, OUR DESTINY WAS TO PERFECT IT.
KWC, combining artistry with mechanical mastery to creating beauty through precision and tremendous attention to detail.
Fortunately for us, we just happened to be genetically and geographically predisposed to creating perfection, after all, we’re Swiss. It’s in our DNA.
And so it was, back in 1874, when KWC was founded by Adolf Karrer, that this journey of perfection would begin. Not with taps to start, but with exquisite music boxes. Even back then, a strong sense of aesthetic had KWC creating works of art. But it was an art form that combined artistry with mechanical mastery. KWC’s music boxes became famous, not only for their beauty, but for their precision and for their tremendous attention to detail.
As all journeys can take interesting turns, so too would ours. Because in the late 1800’s, the demand for convenient access of water in households was growing, so much so, that soon KWC would test the waters, so to speak, and begin the production of taps. It didn’t take long before KWC’s unique ability to combine artistry with mechanical mastery would set us apart.
