Welcome NWSID to the Portland showroom

We are happy to host the March NWSID meeting. We focus on products that stand the test of time for durability, are friendly to the environment due to their manufacturing processes or use of materials, and have great design and beauty. Our company is over 130 years old, but collectively our residential plumbing, hardware and lighting department has 222 years experience between the twelve of us.

Tonight, we will introduce NWSID to a product that is fairly new to the Pacific Northwest, but has been getting lots of media attention in the industry. Kaldewei is the only steel bathtub product that has a 30 year warranty for commercial, as well as residential use. Kaldewei is the first German bathroom fixtures company to be awarded the IBU certificate for manufacturing process and use of resources.

We enjoy working with local companies who manufacture here is the Pacific Northwest. In our showroom, you will see Wawirka, a bronze bathroom sink manufacturer; Elite Bath, maker of beautiful bronze sinks, murals, and furniture; and Rocky Mountain and Sun Valley Bronze, Idaho manufacturers of solid bronze hardware.

Tonight, the PRA spotlight is on one of our vendors, Cement Elegance, Bayard Fox. His products are on display in the showroom.
