Carron—British-built baths you can rely on

Carron—British-built baths you can rely on

Posted by Adam Chard in Trade | 2 years ago 4 min read

We’re proud to launch our new range of Carron baths, designed and manufactured right here in the United Kingdom. But what sets Carron baths apart from the rest? We found out…

Whether you’re a plumber, bathroom fitter, property developer or other form of Trade professional, you’ll know how important it is to select quality products that are built to last. After all, you don’t want to be called out again once a bathroom has been installed, to tend to a defect or leak. Compromising on quality can mean losing out on cash and working hours in the long run. It can even put a dent in your reputation.

At Victoria Plum, you’ll be reassured to know we only stock high quality products which have been rigorously trialled and tested. And that’s why we’re delighted to introduce yet another established name to our Trade recommended product range.

From ballistics to bathtubs: The Carron story

Carron may be famed for their baths, but their roots go back to a very different type of manufacturing.

Founded in 1759 on the banks of the Scottish river which bears its name, Carron was originally an ironworks which grew around the time of the Industrial Revolution. Close to the Firth of Forth and Edinburgh, the company became established as a maker of Carronades (short barrel naval guns), produced for the Royal Navy into the mid 19th century.

At its peak in 1814, Carron employed a vast workforce of over 2,000 people. As more peaceful times were established, Carron used their experience to diversify into other forms of manufacturing. Diverse products like stoves, engines and even the famous red telephone boxes which are instantly recognisable as a British design icon the world over, were produced at the Carron ironworks.

Among these new products, Carron began to produce bathroom sinks and baths, and, while the original Carron company came to an end, Carron Bathrooms took over, continuing the fine tradition of bathtub manufacturing and occupying the same site where it all began over 2 centuries earlier.
