Bill Strang/TOTO USA
In 1989, in response to the state’s dramatic drought conditions and the growing need for water conservation, TOTO USA was established in California. With the TOTO Global Group’s reputation for manufacturing high efficiency toilets in Japan, TOTO quickly became the favorite of both U.S. water conservation experts and consumers as its toilets reduced water consumption while providing effective flushing performance. More than 25 years later, TOTO USA is a leader in the North American residential and commercial bathroom products market, offering a full line of plumbing fixtures, fittings, and accessories that are designed to create an enjoyable bathroom experience.
TOTO’s premium plumbing products are often the first choice of architects, designers, engineers, developers and others who seek the highest quality products for their projects, both residential and commercial. TOTO products can be found in many of the world’s most prestigious homes, condominiums, hotels, resorts, airports, stadiums, restaurants, office buildings and other structures whose standards demand the highest levels of performance design and aesthetics.
