SWEDCAN created the acrylic sanitary-ware market in Canada. It introduced a cross linked grade of material and supplied the technology to manufacture plumbing fixtures such as bathtubs, whirlpools, shower enclosures, sinks and lavatories. SWEDCAN’s LUMATECH plumbing fixture manufacturing plant with proprietary technology (fiberglass free “GREEN” products) and intellectual property was sold in January 2001 to Kohler Co., Kohler Wisconsin. Kohler is the largest sanitary-ware company in the world.
