Founded in 1917, TOTO has been improving performance and hygiene standards within glazed ceramic sanitary-ware for around a hundred Years. We have perfected technologies and design evolutions such as our original Rimless toilets, Tornado Flushing design and CeFiONtect Hygienic Glaze. Since its groundbreaking introduction in 1980, our pioneering Washlet range (electronic bidet seat) has changed how we use the bathroom and reached global sales of over 40 Million units!

The Company was first established by Mr Kazuchika Okura under the name of TOYO TOKI CO Ltd, and was later renamed to TOTO. Five years prior, in 1912, Okura had set up a laboratory to develop the kind of sanitary ceramics that had become common in Europe and America. Okura’s company began challenging accepted notions of cleanliness, something that TOTO continues to do today.
