Established in 1937 by a South London builder, Charles Percival Hart, together with his two sons, John and Tom, C.P. Hart have built a thriving trade business through depression, war, and post-war austerity.
With an unrivalled reputation for service and expertise, Charles opened five stores along the old London Road, intended for plumbers and builders but eventually favoured by all kinds of professional and retail clients. C.P. Hart identifies needs that have not been fulfilled in the bathroom industry. Their success lies in offering exclusive items that no one else has. To do this, they source products directly from Europe and adapt them in their own workshop to make them compatible with UK standards.
C.P. Hart has a talent for recognising the same passion in companies abroad that they possess themselves – they only work with people who truly believe in what they create. C.P. Hart are experts in challenging perceptions and creating new concepts for those willing to take a fresh look at bathroom design. In order to demonstrate this to customers, their unique showroom under the arches in Waterloo has become a compelling tool since 1975.
This large, unique space has enabled them to indulge their passion for design, giving them the room to collate their impressive portfolio of products. From John Hart’s innovative Waterloo shower valve in 1992, which went on to become the biggest selling valve of the decade, through to our most popular classic collection, the London range, C.P. Hart understands the needs of the bathroom market like no other.
What’s more, C.P. Hart prides itself on its high standard of service, which is supported by a sophisticated infrastructure, designed around its customers’ evolving needs. It has the most experienced, understanding and highly-trained design and sales team in the industry, offering the technical expertise to help plan every aspect of a project. From water pressure and plumbing through to understanding what materials work together and the ultimate finishing touches, C.P. Hart draws on over 75 years of bathroom knowledge to assist consumer and trade customers alike.
