A Foundation of Innovation
For 120 years, we've been all about a good place to sit.
In our founding year 1901, we began manufacturing children's wooden wagons. In 1932, Albert Bemis switched to toilet seats, capitalizing on his employees' woodworking expertise. Twenty years later, we innovated a compression molding process for enameled wood seats that's still in use today. 

A Misson of Innovation
Four generations of family leadership later, we’re an industry leader with global locations. But we remain focused on innovations for everyday life.
Simple installation. Slow-close rings and covers. Durable, long-lasting finishes. Sustainably made products that feel good in your home.

A Future of Innovation
We look forward to the future with confidence and a spirit of innovation. Innovation for everyday clean, everyday comfort, everyday families.
