In order to keep up with escalating demand, the distribution part of the business relocates to a 10,000sq ft premises in Tamworth to enable greater stock capability.
As retailers up and down the country continue to stock HiB products, it’s time to deliver them in HiB branded vans, as the business invests in its own fleet team.

Here at HiB, we’re on a mission to make bathrooms beautiful.
Home is where the heart is, and when it comes to the bathroom,we all need a space which soothes the body and stirs the soul. Our desire at HiB, is to help homeowners find their signature bathroom style and provide the ‘wow’ which comes from a beautifully styled interior.
We believe in perfection made personal, and our extensive collection of bathroom products has eye-catching options for everyone. Whether their dream bathroom is cool and contemporary, traditional and timeless, or artfully avant-garde, our range of lighting, mirrors, cabinets and furniture helps our customers to create their dream design without compromise.
HiB has created a huge change within the industry. Before the brand’s inception, bathroom mirrors and cabinets were seen as add-on products. Today, as a result of HiB’s cutting-edge design, our range of products have been elevated to show-stopping ‘must haves’, revolutionising the bathroom sector to an unprecedented degree.
As an industry innovator, HiB pioneered technology such as LED lighting, steam-free mirrors and cabinets, built-in USB charging sockets and Bluetooth connectivity.
Our hard-earned reputation in the industry has been built upon outstanding innovation and peerless quality, but above all else, our commitment to revolutionising design and ‘making bathrooms beautiful’.
