Bobrick President Mark Louchheim commented:

We are thrilled to have Thrislington join the Bobrick family of brands. The talented Thrislington team has continuously raised the bar in toilet partition design and functionality, and we look forward to making further investments in the company.

Thrislington products have won multiple design awards and been installed in prestigious projects from Alice Tully Hall at New York City’s Lincoln Center to the Doha Convention Center in Qatar. The company has innovated such products as its “elegant” Flow toilet partitions, with hydraulically closing doors that close to a completely flush finish and feature stainless steel fittings, and its FlowLite partitions made of smart glass, which emits a light that can change color by the second or can link to the lock, creating a different-colored cubicle if in use.

Thrislington General Manager Jeff Orme remarked:

The Thrislington team is excited to join Bobrick. Bobrick’s core values and passion for product are consistent with our own, and we are excited to work with our new colleagues in deepening our reach worldwide.

According to the Thrislington Web site, the brand’s products will continue to be manufactured at its UK facility with the current management team in place. The business will operate as a separate division of Bobrick, with the combined business focused on developing new products and innovations.
