KLUDI, a family business founded in Germany’s Sauerland region in 1926, stands for almost 100 years of experience in the development and manufacture of high-quality bathroom and kitchen fittings. We are driven by our quality promise: ‘Water in Perfection’.
Who we are
We are masters of our trade as we focus on what we do best: developing and manufacturing quality fittings for washbasins, showers, bathtubs and kitchen sinks. As a fittings specialist, we have been responsible for many major developments in bathroom and kitchen products. To date, we have recorded 170 inventions, 100 patents and 1,000 registered designs.
Even though we export our fittings to over 100 countries today, the KLUDI world still revolves around the place our family-run company was created in 1926 – the heart of Germany’s Sauerland region. This is where, at our headquarters in Menden, we develop, design and manufacture our products. Like our customers around the world, we firmly believe in the quality of products made in Germany.Read more
“Innovation is all about simplicity”: that is our credo when developing bathroom and kitchen solutions for our customers. We always strive to make our fittings even more useful for you. Our ultimate goal is to make your life easier, more convenient and safer. In 2019, KLUDI was named ‘Most Innovative Brand of the Year’ at the Plus X Awards in recognition of these achievements.Read more
We are the only German premium fitting manufacturer that is still wholly family-owned. As a medium-sized company, our business is about more than just quarterly figures and shareholder interests. We focus more on operating sustainably, with long-term planning and viewing things from our customers’ perspective, communicating with them as equal partners.
Everyone in our management team brings quite diverse talents, their own know-how, a wide range of experience and different life stories to the table. This diversity - coupled with our strong team spirit - is the basis for KLUDI's success and the satisfaction of our customers. We stand for both - each with our own name and personal commitment.

What we have to offer
Our tradition as a fittings specialist drives our ambition to unite premium quality ‘Made in Germany’, innovative technologies and top-class design in KLUDI products. As a result, our fittings much more than just everyday utensils. Elegantly designed, reliable, sensual and emotional in the water experience they offer, they add quality to their user’s life.Read more
Our products feature outstanding workmanship. That is why we prioritise premium materials and precision finishing. And control: We inspect every individual product thoroughly before it leaves our plant – and after every step in the process. We want our fittings to be a wholly enjoyable experience for you.Read more
We make products that you touch and use constantly. As a result, our design process is not all about lines and aesthetics – it also includes functionality, ease of use and emotionality. A design is only good if it serves people and adds value. And that is precisely why our fittings make a lasting impression – both on users and the juries of many design awards.Read more
In practice, less is often more. Sprawling portfolios lack clarity, take up too much warehouse space and detract a company away from its core business. That is why we have focused our bathroom and kitchen ranges on the fittings customers really want. Our portfolio is clearly structured, providing clarity, boosting sales and enabling us to better advise customers.To product worlds
