Perrin & Rowe

Perrin & Rowe

Perrin & Rowe fittings have an international reputation for design and quality.

Bob Perrin and Greg Rowe were two friends who shared a passion for making things. Fascinated by traditional manufacturing, they loved tinkering with mechanical objects and making them work better. So much so that they gained a reputation for helping local companies with engineering problems, or producing small production runs of hard-to-make components.

Forty years ago in East London, with limited funds and a factory that was little more than a garden shed, they began their partnership. Alongside a growing stream of projects from a wide range of different businesses, they worked on their own ideas and innovations.

The idea that made their name, and international reputation, was the world’s first 3 in 1 tap – a tap that dispensed hot, cold and filtered water - using a unique patented waterway.

Technology has always been at the heart of the company, but it’s Bob and Greg’s passion for traditional manufacturing craft that has defined the Perrin & Rowe brand. They believed, and we do today, that every product must be treated individually to ensure the highest possible quality. Mass production is not our business.
