Miele Forever Better


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".

For more than 100 years it has been a proven adage that you can trust Miele and rely on their appliances. Miele is 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. Once a Miele, always a Miele: Miele customers around the world remain loyal to Miele and recommend Miele to others. Looking to the future, Miele promises not to entertain any compromises when it comes to the dependability and durability of their appliances.
