Our Story

Making rewarding design accessible is what’s defined us since 1982

Our vision was simple yet complex – deliver incredible quality and style at affordable prices. We also sought to offer the kind of genuine, attentive service that only a business owner can deliver. These founding principles continue to guide our every action, every single day.

Today, Alder is a world-class operation that is renowned for innovative quality designer mixers, tapware, showers and bathroom accessories.

Our Approach

Our mission is to make rewarding design accessible – an innovative position that requires an equally innovative approach.

It’s why we’ve turned our back on bureaucratic management layers, instead nurturing agile teams that are empowered to make decisions. We have a keen eye for operational efficiency and comb the globe for sparks of insights and inspiration. We are never happy with the status quo and are addicted to the pursuit of absolute perfection.

The founding spirit and principles of Alder remain the same today and guide everything we do.


We draw upon worldwide design, engineering and manufacturing expertise to continually advance an entire industry.  Our team has obsessively refined every component of our products over time for greater durability and functionality. It’s why we are equally steadfast in guaranteeing the design and quality of every product that bears our name.
