Inventor Al Moen designed the first single-handle faucet in 1937. It took 10 years for Moen to get his faucets produced for the market. Today, Moen is the largest faucet maker in North America. The company has manufacturing plants in the US, China, and India. It continually expands its product line, particularly in kitchen and bathroom fixtures.
A key area of focus for product development is sustainability. Its WaterSense technology has been lauded by the US EPA for its water conservation abilities and is becoming the standard for all Moen faucets and shower heads. – less
