150 years of GeberitOur success story

Gründerfamilie Gebert

The Geberit story dates back to 1874, when it started as a one-man operation in the old town of Rapperswil, Switzerland. Some 30 years later, company founder Albert Gebert developed a wooden cistern lined with lead. The company gained further momentum with the groundbreaking invention of the first plastic cistern in 1952, followed by the concealed cistern in 1964.

What started out as a modest family business has since emerged as the European market leader for sanitary products. Our innovative, high-quality products for sanitary technology and the bathroom continue to set new standards: then, now and in the future.
