BLANCO pays tribute to 30 years in Canadian kitchens.

TORONTO, ON, June 2020 – BLANCO has quietly and passionately elevated the standards for luxury sinks, faucets, and accessories in Canada for the last 30 years. BLANCO is the number one kitchen sink brand in Canada and a world leader in kitchen sink and faucet technology. Moreover, BLANCO Canada is the proud home to North America’s SILGRANIT sink manufacturing facility. With 30 years of engineering and manufacturing advancements, BLANCO Canada proudly celebrates market leadership and its rich heritage of Canadian-Made, granite-composite, SILGRANIT products.

Home to the first BLANCO SILGRANIT production facility outside of Germany, and heading up North American Research & Development, BLANCO Canada has played a critical role in the growth of the North American market with the development of several best-selling SILGRANIT colours and numerous product innovations. In 2016, the Canadian Manufacturing Plant ushered in a new generation of SILGRANIT sink with the introduction of the IKON farmhouse. Truly an engineering feat in the world of modern manufacturing, BLANCO Canada was able to create the world’s first apron front sink made of granite composite. Since its initial launch 4 years ago, the IKON family has grown to become a best-selling farmhouse product line in both Canada and the United States. Other popular Canadian SILGRANIT families include VISION, PRECIS, DIAMOND and PERFORMA which are all currently available in eight nature-inspired colours; Anthracite, Cinder, Metallic Gray, Concrete Gray, Truffle, Café, Biscuit and White.

SILGRANIT remains the #1 choice for granite composite sinks across North America. The kitchen sink plays an important role in the demanding lifestyles of today’s modern homeowner and has become the silent hero we rely on, depend on, and lean on as an integral part of our daily kitchen routine. With hundreds of shapes, sizes, colours and configurations available, BLANCO sinks enhance life in the kitchen with smart, functional and beautiful design.

2020 marks BLANCO Canada’s 30th anniversary and BLANCO will be celebrating this milestone alongside digital audiences nationwide throughout the entire month of July. After Canada Day long weekend, BLANCO Canada will kick-off an engaging digital campaign showcasing fun facts, interesting company archives, exceptional employee stories and nostalgic design throwbacks from the last three decades. Through rich content, interesting quizzes and exciting prizes, BLANCO Canada hopes to give back and show their deep appreciation for being a part of Canadian kitchens for the last 30 years.

BLANCO will also be partnering with HOUSE & HOME, Canada’s #1 Design & Décor Publication, to kick-off this milestone anniversary with an exciting BLANCO prize pack giveaway that will be promoted across House & Home social networks, and from mid-June to October.

“BLANCO has such a strong history in manufacturing, design and development,” says Garth Wallin, President & CEO of BLANCO North America. “When you combine that with our exceptional people and strong global brand, I’m confident that we will continue to see great success for the next 30 years to come.”
