How we became the Wash and Dry Toilet pioneer

On a business trip to Switzerland in 1959, Manchester-based builder Robert Willan came across a ‘fancy throne’. He was fascinated by the concept of personal hygiene it delivered, to the extent he returned to Switzerland specifically to meet the inventor, Hans Maurer. The rest, as they say, is history.

In 1962 Robert Willan founded Closomat in the UK becoming a Wash and Dry Toilet pioneer. Closomat has grown to become the brand leader in an entirely new experience of freshness and cleanliness- the aspirational standard in intimate care and hygiene.
