Our Story

Swadling Brassware was founded by Jeremy Swadling in the 1970s from a small workshop in Petersfield, Hampshire.

Starting as a maker of bespoke wooden canopy baths and accessories, Jeremy then realigned his focus to creating Bathroom Brassware in keeping with the high quality of his original creations and the unique style of period English properties.

It was at this point when Swadling Invincible was born. The collection launched with a range of exposed traditionally inspired Thermostatic Shower Mixers which were among the very first in England to make use of thermostatic cartridges and the first to combine these with an on/off control in the same casting. This raised the bar for performance and safety in the bathroom and became the industry benchmark for exposed and then concealed Shower Mixers.

As Swadling Brassware progressed from these beginnings, expertise became established in the efficiency of water delivery alongside the thermostatic element. Swadling Brassware became the established expert in achieving high flow rates even at low water pressures and this industry-leading performance still persists to this day.

Today, Swadling Brassware remains focused on driving Brassware innovation, passionate about working with Classic design and dedicated to creating quality pieces, crafted and finished as carefully as the one-offs in Jeremy’s first workshop.

The Swadling Brassware factory is still based in Waterlooville, Hampshire where all Shower Assemblies, Basin Mixers, Bath Mixers and Accessories are manufactured, plated and polished; operating with an expert team some of whom have worked with Swadling since the early days
