ABOUT THE HIPPO FAMILY
Mr Hippo, Mrs Hippo, and the three mini Hippos. Plus Lyndsay the admin extraordinaire, Simon the man that helps build and wrap, and Mr Powdercoating Man down the road.
We are a little family business, based in deepest Fenland in South Lincolnshire.
We have a little (okay, he's pretty big) Highland Pony called Lonni (Lonach of Forglen, aka the 'Hippo') who had a serious dislike of being washed with cold water, a wife who is a walking disaster zone when it comes to using gas... and a husband who is rather good at making things, fabulous at welding bits of metal and happens to be qualified to do LPG non-domestic boilers. When none of the other showers on the market measured up to what we needed, Hippo Showers were born.
We started in our garden shed, with the children sticking the stickers on. But now, we have a proper premises, and have a handful of brilliant employees. Our product range has grown and grown (solariums, hose booms, hoses, and even shampoos and wash mitts!) and so has our love for our little business.
We have built an excellent reputation for creating such good quality products, and we pride ourselves on providing the best customer service we can; regularly receiving feedback confirming this. This makes us fuzzy in our tummies with pride.
Every single shower, and every single customer is important to us. We love hearing how your Hippo is getting on, getting photos and updates etc. So... there you go. That's us.
