Delta Faucet Company History
Delta Faucets has a long history for producing quality products that stretches back to the company’s founding in 1954. That was the year in which Alex Manoogian, the company’s founder, created the first kitchen faucet design with a single handle. He decided to call it the Delta Faucet
, after the Greek letter it closely resembled. Delta Faucets
grew quickly in popularity and in 1960 Delta expanded its line to include bath faucets. Delta was also the first company to introduce washerless double faucets and affordable decorative faucets, as well as created the first faucet with a pull-out spray head.
Today Delta continues its long history of innovation. In the past ten years Delta has introduced a hands-free faucet for residential use that is known as the e-flow faucet and a Multichoice Universal Valve, which allows users to change fixtures without changing the plumbing behind the wall. In 2008 Delta introduced DIAMIOND™ Seal Technology, a new water delivery system which reduces leaks and drips.
