Miele has been an indipendent family-owned company since its extrablishment in 1899 and is equally committed to its owners, employees, customers and environment. The companny focus is on manufacturing household appliances for the kitchen, the laudry room and for floorcare, as well as appliances for use in commercial opertations and medical facilities. The strategic vision is to become the most favoured brand of the industry in all relevant markets. Miele offers products to its customers that set the standards for durability, performance, ease of use, energy efficency, design and service. This corresponds to the guiding principle "Immer besser" which the founders Carl Miele and Reinhard Zinkann printed on their first machines, and which characteries Miele to this days.
