Shower, tap and valve manufacturer Methven has been formally acquired by GWA Group Limited, an Australian supplier of building fixtures and fittings to residential and commercial premises.

The acquisition brings together Australia and New Zealand’s biggest kitchen and bathrooms brands, according to Methven, to create “an enviable market leading product portfolio. GWA’s product range is distributed under brands including Caroma, Dorf, and Clark.

“GWA and Methven are businesses that are very much aligned in terms of vision, culture, ambition and the way we operate in our respective markets. Methven is passionate about delivering amazing showering experiences that do not cost the earth, which goes hand in hand with GWA’s company mission of making life better with superior solutions for water,” said Methven UK CEO Martin Walker, pictured.

“By combining the expertise of these two businesses and associated brands we will be able to offer enhanced opportunities to all of our customers and significant growth opportunities both in the UK market and globally. This is an exciting opportunity and we look forward to what the future holds for the combined strength of the two businesses,” added Walker.
