Celmac Wirquin celebrates 125th anniversary

Published:  19 February, 2015

Celmac Wirquin is celebrating its 125th anniversary with a variety of promotions and events throughout 2015.

One of the leading toilet seat manufacturers in the UK, Celmac is historically renowned for the 1930's black crescent shaped school seat with the gap in the front (Crescent), as well as setting the BS1254 Type 1 (Sonata) and the BS1254 Type 2 (Emerald).

Celmac, originally known as Robert Mcard, after its founder, has been producing toilet seats since 1890. Over 1m pieces are now produced each year to meet a wide range of design and technical specifications. The innovative technology ensures that the thermoset and thermoplastic seats are resilient, universal fitting and easy to install.

Just for fun, installers are being asked: “Have you seen the oldest Celmac toilet seat around?” A 1970’s Saxon seat has already been spotted in a local home, but have you seen older ones? Send your photos and details of where you’ve spotted it to communications@wirquin.co.uk.
