Miele has been an independent family-owned company since its establishment in 1899 and is equally committed to its owners, employees, customers, suppliers, the environment and society.
The company focuses exclusively on the Miele brand and its consistent positioning in the premium segment. Miele stands for long-term thinking and planning, continuity of values and goals, good relationships with customers and suppliers, as well as an employee-oriented corporate and leadership culture.
Miele offers products to its customers that set the standards for durability, performance, ease of use, energy efficiency, design and service. This corresponds to the guiding principle “Immer besser” which the founders Carl Miele (left) and Reinhard Zinkann printed on their first machines - and which characterizes Miele to this day.
Whether conventional rotary switch, discreet sensor controls or a high-resolution touch display like the one on your smartphone; operating a Miele is both easy and fun.
Miele believes in clean lines and timeless elegance. Nowhere else will you find such a comparable range of built-in kitchen appliances, with consistency in Design lines and colour options, to suit the most diverse of interior designs and kitchen furniture fronts. Great care is taken to coordinate appliance design across the range. Whatever the style of your kitchen: Miele is the perfect match.
For more than 100 years it has been a proven adage that you can trust Miele and rely on our appliances. We are the only manufacturer in our branch of industry to test products such as our washing machines, tumble dryers, dishwashers and ovens to the equivalent of 20 years’ use.
Two families have shaped the company for more than 100 years: the Miele and Zinkann families. In 1899, with four lathes and one drilling machine, the engineer Carl Miele and the businessman Reinhard Zinkann founded a company for the manufacture of cream separators in Herzebrock. Their guiding principle becomes the business philosophy: “Immer besser” – Forever Better.
