The Meridian International Group, located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, starts producing faucets, valves, shower components and other machine products for some of the world’s leading plumbing companies.


The combination of a European background and American culture shapes Kulig’s desire to manufacture unique, designer eco-friendly products.


While many American and European manufacturers begin to source components and complete products from China, the Meridian Group expands by acquiring a historical European company, a  manufacturer of high-standard plumbing products since 1922.

Adjoining a national park and protecting the environment, GRAFF acquired a manufacturing plant that meets strict EMS and conservation standards. In 1996, GRAFF achieves ISO 9001 certification for its quality management systems.

The production of faucets and shower systems takes a twist towards interior design: GRAFF  is born and becomes the benchmark for luxury bathroom fixtures.

GRAFF introduces its first design collection: Targa

The collection is modern and elegant with smooth and slightly convex handles, gracefully matching the spout design.

GRAFF obtains the ISO 14001 certification for its production processes by meeting the standards for lean manufacturing and environmental management systems.

Luna, one of the most iconic among GRAFF’s collections is presented to the market.

Inspired by the shape of the crescent moon, its sublime, curved design appears to float along the wall and almost magically deliver a stream of water.


All GRAFF products adhere to eco-friendly standards by automatically including a water-saving device.

A new configurator is created to help customers and designers mix and match the different finishes with the collections.

The Mod+ Collection wins the Archiproducts Design Award.

This celebration of excellence in design is great recognition for GRAFF, awarded by a high-profile jury of 60 international members from the worlds of architecture, photography, fashion, art, and communication.

GRAFF’s finishes portfolio is expanded with the introduction of six new PVD finishes and four living finishes.

PVD, Physical Vapor Deposition, is an innovative finishing process that allows for a very high level of surface hardness as well as an unparalleled resistance to atmospheric agents and detergents for daily cleaning.

GRAFF revisits some of its most successful classical designs to complete the collections and give them a fresher, more interesting look.

With over 400 new models and more than 25 collections, GRAFF is now able to offer every solution for master baths, shower areas, and powder rooms.
