About HiB

Here at HiB, we’re on a mission to make bathrooms beautiful.

Established in 1990 by Warren Ginsberg, we started out as a small bathroom mirror business in North London before rapidly expanding with a Tamworth distribution operation to keep up with escalating demand. The rest, as they say is history.

Fast forward twenty five years and the HiB of today is widely recognised as a world leading bathroom product manufacturer providing cutting-edge, quality bathroom products throughout the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

From the very best in bathroom mirrors, cabinets, furniture, ventilation and lighting – if you’re seeking the all-important design details to create a truly aspirational bathroom – you’ve come to right place.

And with all this backed up with a national network of stockists, quality assurance and second-to-none customer service, you’re guaranteed not to be disappointed.

So go on, try us out for yourself and help make your bathroom beautiful.
