The Miele Company has a long and rich history of high quality engineering. “Immer Besser” or “Forever Better” was established early as the company motto and stands for a commitment to the highest quality standards, longevity and improvement; both in production and business practices. This philosophy is as relevant today as it was over 113 years ago.
Founded in 1899 by a farmers son, Carl Miele, and a salesman, Reinhard Zinkann, The Miele Company is still independently owned and managed by the Miele and Zinkann families. With global headquarters in Gutersloh, Germany, Miele is a world leader in the production of premium domestic and commercial appliances. There are 8 production plants in Germany and also plants in Austria, the Czech Republic, Romania and China. Miele has its own wholly owned sales subsidiaries in 47 countries and is represented in a further 48 by distribution partners. Company turnover now exceeds €3bn.
