From the renowned Swash electronic bidet suite to the H2O+ line of water filtration systems and O2+ air purification, people are taking notice of Brondell's products and acknowledging their role in bringing technology and science together to deliver modern health and hygiene products to the home and office.
Privately held and backed by internet pioneers Mark Cuban and Dave Samuel, Brondell is a well-established manufacturing company that is growing fast. Their products are carried by many leading retailers, including Amazon, Costco, Home Depot and Lowes, with their products having won numerous awards over the years. An industry leader in the niche of electronic bidet toilet seats and bidet attachments, they are continuing expansion into new home product categories such as water filtration, air purification, shower filtration and new and exciting product categories for the home.
18 years ago, Founder Dave Samuel was traveling in Japan with his father. He realized that most homes and businesses had bidets installed in their restrooms, and wanted to bring the technology to the United States.
A few years later, the Swash electronic bidet seat was born. Seats ranging from non-electric to top-tier luxury, Brondell's bidet seats sit right on top of your toilet, replacing the seat. After finding initial success, Brondell added bidet attachments, hand-held bidets and travel bidets. Today, they are the largest manufacturer of bidets in North America!
Brondell then pivoted to water filtration with the H20+ line of award-winning products including countertop, under-counter and Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems. From there, air purification products with the 02+ line were launched. With award-winning air purifiers for every need, they now feature the Brondell Pro – proven to eliminate COVID-19 within 15 minutes.
As a company dedicated to healthy homes and healthy families, they are committed to the community through a variety of programs and partnerships.
By the time Dave Samuel was nine years old, he was waking up at 4 AM to deliver the Waterville Morning Sentinel by 6:15 AM. Dave then launched Thriller Designs while in the fifth grade and Sounds Unlimited, a mobile DJ service, in the sixth grade. Dave has been a hustling entrepreneur at heart ever since. After graduating from MIT undergrad and working at Oracle for one year, Dave co-founded Spinner in 1995 (acquired by AOL for $320 million) and Grouper/Crackle in 2004 (acquired by Sony for $65 million). He discovered the beauty of the bidet business and founded Brondell, a developer of innovative, healthy home products that’s #1 in the #2 business. Dave also chairs Toi Labs, which aims to harness data for health analysis before it’s flushed away. When he is OOO, Dave enjoys mountain biking, snowboarding and wakeboarding. Being a dad is cool too.
Steve brings more than 25 years of business, financial and operations management experience in both corporate and entrepreneurial environments to Brondell. His background includes early to mid-stage management in companies such as Craigslist.org and EcoTimber, along with corporate experience at institutions such as Brown Brothers Harriman and Company. Steve has a proven track record of success with a focus on operational development of company infrastructure, development of domestic and international distribution & sales channels, and strategic planning across a variety of products and industries. Steve earned his bachelor's degree in Finance from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.
