From its large and modern industrial complex, in Aveiro, which operates 24 hours a day and seven days a week, 2 million cisterns and 2.8 million mechanisms are produced each year.

OLI flushing cisterns can be found in bathrooms all over the world. A hotel in Cuba, an Israeli hospital, a school in Spain, a football stadium in Qatar, a boat Hotel in Peru or a restaurant in Italy, are just a few examples of landmark projects where OLI products are present. This international recognition is based on innovation, through designing unique technical and user friendly solutions.
