Here at Addis we believe that housework should be less of a chore and more ‘matter-of-fact’ – a simple task with no effort. We want to make life easier which leaves time for the things that really matter. That’s why we do what we do!
As an international, independently owned company, we have a proud 230 year old history of design, manufacture and supply of housewares. The ADDIS brand still stands today, as it has for previous generations, for value, quality and innovation.
Our UK-based design and manufacturing is complemented by state-of-the-art facilities in Europe and the Far East meaning we are well placed to continue brand development, deliver outstanding service and ensure customer satisfaction.
