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’.
HiB Corporate Film
HiB started life with Warren selling bathroom mirrors from his North London home. Our first company logo is created.
The first move
The business starts to expand at a rapid rate. HiB opens its first HQ in East Barnet followed by its first Distribution Centre in Tamworth in the Midlands.
HiB introduce a new company logo as the company starts to produce its own range of innovative, quality, branded goods.
Building on its success, HiB exhibits its growing range of products at many trade Exhibitions throughout the UK including KBB and also at the major International Bathroom Exhibition ISH in Frankfurt.
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.
HiB hits the road
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.
Quality at the forefront
In order to continue to deliver the highest quality products on the market, HiB invests in an internal quality assurance department, ensuring every single product receives the HiB stamp of approval.
New Distribution Centre
HiB move to new 'state of the art' National Distribution Centre in Tamworth with 40,000 sq ft which includes office space for Marketing, Buying, QA and Transport Departments.
Next stop, the in-house design team is created. As the innovation hub of the business, this is where all new products are designed, developed and tested before UK and export distribution.
The export division plays a pivotal role in the growth of HiB’s business with particular focus on Europe and the Middle East.
HiB Celebrates its 25th Anniversary with a party for all their staff and their partners at a Dinner Dance Cruise on one of the Thames luxury cruise boats. Sailing from The Embankment they went past all the major sites along the river in glorious weather.
A new era
Having reached its 25th anniversary, HiB launches its new brand logo and identity – the result of over a year’s planning and investment.
HiB move to a new 85,000 sq ft Distribution Centre on the Birch Coppice Estate.
