Before American Standard, there was the Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company.
It was founded in 1875, and merged with several other small plumbing manufacturers
in 1899 to form the Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company. Standard Sanitary pioneered
many of the plumbing product improvements introduced in the early part of this century
including the one-piece toilet, built-in tubs, combination faucets (which mix hot
and cold water to deliver tempered water) and tarnish-proof, corrosion-proof chrome
finishes for brass fittings. By 1929, Standard had become the world's largest producer
of bathroom fixtures.
That same year, the Standard Sanitary Corporation merged with American Radiator
Company to form the American Radiator and Standard Sanitary Corporation. The corporation
adopted the name "American Standard" in 1967.
And, in the last few years we’ve introduced new products and innovations in all
of product categories, leaving an indelible impression on the industry.
