Specialist producer of innovative sanitary fittings

Hansa Group is widely recognised as a leader in the sanitary fittings market for bathrooms and kitchens in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

The product portfolio ranges from faucets, shower heads and systems, thermostats to in-wall fittings and various accessories. Hansa Group divides into two businesses units operating under different brands – “Hansa” and “KWC”. Hansa Group  is headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany.

The IK 2007 Fund acquired Hansa Group in December 2011. IK exited in 2013, selling KWC to Franke in April, and Hansa to Oras Group in October of the same year.
