Made in Germany 

At the heart of what we do: our production facilities

As with all Bette bathroom products, our shower trays and areas are made exclusively on our own premises in Delbrück in Westphalia. Why? Because this is where we perfectly combine top craftsmanship and engineering skills, careful production and technical sophistication. Made in Germany, in fact.

Where man and machine work together intelligently: our works in Delbrück. Around 380 people work here, with some 160 of them manufacturing our exclusive bathroom products in glazed titanium steel. With the help of huge steel presses and articulated robots. A veritable hive of activity, usually in several shifts.

Although many other companies of our size now manufacture their items all over the world, at Bette everything comes from here, from East-Westphalia. 

This is thanks to the special people here and to the sophisticated production processes that are only available at our works in Delbrück. Bette has been manufacturing bathroom products using its own forming technique since the 1970s. The company simply didn't have the money for an off-the-peg system – for mass-produced goods. So it opted for its own machine concept, universal and flexible, and stands by that choice to this day.

The forming technique to Bette's principles enables it to provide some 35 million different model, size and colour combinations in the shortest possible time. Bette opts for design, for premium – and for baths that are made to measure. The company can also manufacture a single one-off item at any time.

The special deep-drawing process allows the titanium-finished steel sheets to flow into the mould slowly and precisely. The result is a strong almost uniform thickness that saves resources and is highly exclusive.

The manual work starts in the manufacturing facility and grinding shop. Anything that cannot be deep-drawn is shaped and sized by hand. Not a job that can be done by just anyone; it takes many years of experience. The welders and grinders work with absolute precision.

There's a powdery warmth in the enamelling works. In the robotic ballet, spray nozzles evenly apply the layers of enamel to the bathroom products - in a precisely detailed choreography. The top and colour layers are applied in a wet-in-wet technique after the base glaze.

This production process, which has been perfected over decades, enables us to create spectacular forms that are also exceptionally resilient: 

Technical sophistication combined with perfect craftsmanship.

At our works, we also manufacture, by hand, exclusive special models ranging from special size to bathrooms for cruise ships The factory also serves us both as a design lab and as a field for experimenting with new ideas and developments. But above all, it is the loyalty of our staff that gives us the special freedom to think outside the box. Another reason why we love our entrepreneurial home so much.

Product design from a former coach house in Potsdam

From the BetteCraft washbasin to the BetteFloor Side shower area, Dominik Tesseraux, the German freelance product designer, designed many of our bathroom products. Tesseraux was born in Bensheim in 1966. After training as a cabinetmaker and studying design, he worked at various well-known German design offices. In 2001 he founded the design offices of tesseraux+partner, initially as a "one-man show in his garden shed", as he puts it. Today, Tesseraux and his four members of staff work in a brick-built former coach house in Potsdam. His designs have received numerous national and international awards.

His creations are notable for the level of minimalism and purism. Is that typically German? Perhaps it's just an honest reduction to the essentials that we like to follow with our product designs at Bette.

Quality you can trust from Delbrück

Our products are exceptionally robust and permanently beautiful - simply made in Germany. This quality delights all over the world. So it's no wonder that it's no more unusual to see our bathroom products in China than in Italy or the UK.

We show you exactly where they are to be found here.

Typically German? The clean bathroom

The Germans are said to be fastidiously clean. But is that so? Certainly hygiene in the bathroom is important to us here at Bette. Which is why we make sure that our shower areas are particularly clean. How do we do that? Dirt and bacteria are unable to adhere to the glass-hard, non-porous surface of BetteGlaze®. This makes it highly superior to softer materials or tiled areas.

The silicone-free BetteUpstand acts as the optically and hygienically perfect connection between the wall and the bathroom product or shower. Thanks to the upturned edge in glazed titanium steel, water simply flows away. This solution leaves no gaps for water to penetrate or for the capillary effect of water splashes. Mould, bacteria and dirt are unable to adhere to the glazed surface of the upstand. It protects against mould and water damage, and saves the regular expenses for the renewal of silicone joints.

And what makes it all really simple: all our bathroom products ar unbeatably easy to clean. We recommend:
