The UK's leading manufacturer of shower and kitchen taps providing smart technology is looking for agents and distributors in France, Portugal, Spain, Denmark, Switzerland and Austria that work with plumbers either via showrooms, plumbers merchants or the internet.

It has remained a specialist company and the leading innovator in smart showering ever since developing their original reliable temperature systems in the 1970s. They now provide real smart technology internationally. Features include touch controls, remote activation and pre-set flow and temperature options that all add up to a uniquely personal shower.
