Purus History

The Purus group is privately owned by Lars Spånberg. He belongs to the eleventh generation of tradesmen and smiths. The family connection between the Spånbergs and the famous scientist and adventurer S.A. Andrée is still very clearly shown in the capacity for innovation, creativity and inventiveness at Purus AB.

In 1945, the Spånberg family bought Sjöbo Bruk, which later changed its name to Purus. The company has previously been known above all for the floor drain, Purus.

Nowadays Purus AB is one of the leading suppliers to the heating, ventilation and sanitary ware market. This is the result of focused investments in product development and a consistent acquisition strategy.
