The Kaldewei brand stands for superior quality, discriminating design and creative solutions for the bathroom. The company began in 1918, under Franz Kaldewei, and, in 1958, produced the world's first "seamless" bathtub. Kaldewei maintains a tradition for innovation that has made it the leading bath manufacturer in Europe with more than 300 different models of bathtubs to fit every need. The company's commitment to quality and durability is reflected in a 30-year guarantee on all Kaldewei steel enamel baths and shower trays.
