Bathroom furniture and product manufacturer HiB is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2020, and has looked back over its achievements to mark the occasion, including its most recent recognition as a winner of Innovation in the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
Founded in the 1990s by chairman Warren Ginsberg, HiB now employs more than 110 staff across two sites comprising its headquarters in New Southgate, North London and its 85,000sq ft national distribution centre near Tamworth in the Midlands.
The company creates bathroom mirrors, lighting, cabinets and other furniture, including steam-free mirrors, LED lighting in mirrors and cabinets with Bluetooth and USB integration. It underwent a rebrand in 2016 before entering the accessories market in 2019, and recently expanded its Contracts department.
HiB said its “phased approach” to tackling the COVID-19 pandemic has allowed it to focus on key areas and develop new methods of communication with its retailers. The company said it has a “number of exciting launches” in the pipeline, including some due later this year.
“As technology has developed and the needs of consumers has changed, we’ve worked hard to make sure we design product which fulfil a genuine need,” said HiB chairman and founder Warren Ginsberg.
“Over the past 30 years we’ve established a great product development team who do a lot of market research to create eye-catching designs, that make a statement in the bathroom and I think it’s our continuous pursuit of producing new, innovative ideas which has helped us to build HiB’s reputation as a forward-thinking company.”
