About Moen Faucets and Moen's Faucet firsts

Timeless designs. Styles unlike anything else. Faucets and fixtures that are livable and enduring. These are just some of the reasons that Moen Inc is the number one brand of faucet in North America. But, Moen does more than make faucets. It's also a major supplier of stylish kitchen sinks and innovative bath accessories.

Moen is part of Fortune Brands´ Home and Hardware group - a leading consumer brands company that includes leading cabinetry, door and lock manufacturers.


Besides introducing the world to the single-handle faucet, Moen is known throughout the industry for a series of firsts that include:
  • Washerless cartridge system that replaces seals and washers to ease faucet maintenance

  • Swing'n'Spray® aerator that changes the water flow from a stream to a forceful spray

  • Riser® family of faucets that can lift 10-inches above the sink

  • Pressure-balanced shower valves that reduce the risk of shower shock

  • Lifetime warranties

  • Toll-free consumer help lines for installation or replacement questions

With an emphasis on new technology, Moen has introduced innovative products such as:

ChoiceFlo ™ the first filtering faucet to feature dual waterways in the spout - with two independent valves - to allow for both filtered and non-filtered water.

Aberdeen™ pulldown faucet with a patented pause button that stops the flow of water with a touch of a button

Immersion™ rainshower technology provides a powerful, rain-drenching shower experience unlike typical rainshowers that have a "drooping" showering pattern similar to the flow from a watering can

LifeShine® finish technology that allows designer finishes like brushed nickel to have the durability of chrome

M-PACT® common valve system that allows consumers to upgrade their faucets without replacing existing plumbing.


In 2004, Moen launched ShowHouse ® by Moen®, a new line of luxury faucets and accessories for the kitchen and bath, featuring cutting-edge affordable styles for fashion-conscious homeowners.

For the kitchen and bath, ShowHouse by Moen offers styles that range from sleek and modern to refined and traditional. Products include kitchen, preparatory and bath faucets, luxurious shower, spa and tub faucet options and a complete line of coordinating bath accessories. All are available in beautiful designer finishes.

The line also features exclusive powder room collections with uniquely designed faucets and accessories for a coordinated look in the one room your guests are certain to use.


The Moen brand was developed by Al Moen in 1937 as a college student. By 1947 Al Moen finally got an interested manufacturer, named Revenna Metal Products, to produce its products. Read our article about The History of Moen. Moen, originally part of Ravenna Metal Products of Seattle, Washington, became part of Stanadyne, Inc., in 1956 as the Company's only consumer brand. Stanadyne was acquired in 1988 by Forstmann-Little & Company. In 1989, Moen was given the status of an independent company and renamed Moen Incorporated before being purchased by MasterBrand Industries, Inc., an operating company of American Brands, in 1990. American Brands became Fortune Brands in 1997, and Moen is now part of the Fortune Brands Home and Hardware group.

In the time that Moen has been part of the Fortune Brands family, it has introduced a wide range of consumer-preferred, stylish products - positioning Moen as the number one plumbing brand, both in market share and in the minds of consumers.

With Moen, you'll always find the perfect balance between styles you'll love and innovation you can live with. Buy it for looks. Buy it for life®.
