Apron Sink in Granite Composite
Home to the first BLANCO SILGRANIT production plant outside of Germany, the Toronto, Canada, facility has played a critical role in the growth of the North American market with the development of several SILGRANIT colors and numerous product innovations. In 2016, the North American Manufacturing Plant ushered in a new generation of SILGRANIT sink with the introduction of the IKON farmhouse. An engineering feat in the world of modern manufacturing, BLANCO IKON is one of the first apron front sinks made of granite-composite. Since its initial launch four years ago, the IKON family has grown to become a best-selling farmhouse product line in both Canada and the U.S. Other popular SILGRANIT families include PRECIS, DIAMOND and PERFORMA which are all available in eight nature-inspired colors: Anthracite, Cinder, Metallic Gray, Concrete Gray, Truffle, Café, Biscuit and White.
2020 has brought more challenges than anyone could have ever imagined. Moving into the next decade, BLANCO understands that lifestyle needs will continue to change. The rise of smart appliances, sustainable technologies and hygienic solutions continue to gain traction and permeate homes and kitchens. SILGRANIT will continue to expand its offerings with new colors, innovative product features and material advancements.
