For all your commercial bathroom project needs, you can now enjoy an expanded selection of products with our new Armitage Shanks range.

For those working in the Trade, Armitage Shanks is a name you’ll certainly be familiar with. And there’s good reason why this brand of ceramics and sanitary products has become an institution for commercial toilets and bathrooms up and down the country.

Whenever you visit a public toilet in a hospital, stadium, supermarket, service station or pub, it’s highly likely you’ll use an Armitage Shanks product. This is why, at Victoria Plum, we’re delighted to expand our Trade offering with a wide selection of Armitage Shanks products, including toilets, urinals, grab rails, basins, taps, baths and more.

With top grade materials tested to above and beyond British and European standards, you can be assured that Armitage Shanks sanitaryware is able to withstand the wear and tear of everyday life in a commercial setting. Comprehensive and lengthy guarantees also stand testament to this.

Armitage Shanks: a potted history

Established by Thomas Bond in Armitage, near Rugeley in Staffordshire (an area commonly known as “The Potteries”), the Armitage sanitary potter manufacture developed into one of the UK’s leading toilet makers. Meanwhile, Shanks Holdings Ltd based in Barrhead, Renfrewshire, were also making a name for themselves in sanitary ware. And, in 1969, the 2 companies merged, creating the now internationally recognised brand Armitage Shanks.

After celebrating its 200th anniversary in 2017, Armitage Shanks is now owned by another leading name in the UK bathroom industry, Ideal Standard. The 40 acre Armitage site employs over 300 staff, producing more than 1.4M items every single year, selling to UK trade and exporting internationally. Meanwhile, the headquarters are based in Hull, East Yorkshire and remains the only major sanitaryware manufacturer in this country.
