OUR EXCLUSIVE GERMAN APPLIANCE SUPPLIERS
Gaggenau German Appliances
Founded in 1683, Gaggenau has been involved in the manufacturer of kitchen appliances for over 300 years. Initially Gaggenau manufactured coal, gas and electrically powered stoves as well as industrial kitchen installations. In 1961, under the leadership of Georg von Blanquet, production was switched progressively to integrated kitchen appliances and this has made Gaggenau the industry leader it is today.
In both function and design, Gaggenau is the brand for the professional chef and personifies the absolute high-end aspiration for integrated kitchen appliances. Each Gaggenau appliance is handcrafted; with attention to detail and the human touch during the intricate assembly processes that are integral to the company’s philosophy.
No other company has revolutionized the domestic kitchen appliances as much as Gaggenau, with its innovative built-in ovens, ‘Free’ Induction cooktops, pyrolytic self-cleaning systems, Combination steam ovens and uniquely oven doors that can be opened from the side, to name but a few innovations.

Specializing in the integrated refrigerator solutions along with freestanding and wine-temperature control cabinets, the Liebherr Group is still managed by the Liebherr family today.
For Hans Liebherr, the impetus behind new areas of business is sometimes derived from personal contacts. From the branch manager of his local bank, the businessman learns about a refrigerator-making factory that is for sale.
By examining the product, the sales figures and the markets, Liebherr recognizes the enormous potential of appliances. At this time, only one in every ten households in Germany has a refrigerator – and with the economy growing, demand is on the rise. Hans Liebherr decides not to buy the company but instead builds his own production facilities at the Ochsenhausen site in Southern Germany. In 1954, the first refrigerator is built there and series production begins just one year later.
Today the domestic appliances from Liebherr are a symbol of quality worldwide and every day more than 7,000 appliances leave Liebherr’s various production plants.
OUR EXCLUSIVE GERMAN KITCHEN ACCESSORIES
Dornbracht German Tapware
The days were long. More than sixty years ago, Aloys F. Dornbracht, who was 57 years old at the time, and his son Helmut were working until five o'clock in the afternoon for other firms so that they could then use their wages to set up their own business in an old shack in Iserlohn. Evening after evening, they stood at the workbench, filing and polishing the first Dornbracht patent - a totally new fitting with an extending spout. Today, that entrepreneurial spirit to take risks and welcome change still determines the success of this family-run company. With the first fittings in his suitcase, Aloys F. Dornbracht took the train to the merchants in Cologne, literally selling from door to door. A few years later, the firm was producing 40,000 pieces a month. Now Helmut Dornbracht's sons, Andreas and Matthias, are at the helm of this medium-sized company, which in six decades has become the global market leader in premium fitting production and has exerted considerable influence over the cultural importance of design, architecture and technology in the Kitchen.

Hansgrohe German Tapware

Master clothier Hans Grohe (1871-1955) was an innovator. In 1899 he moved from Luckenwalde near Berlin to the small Black Forest town of Schiltach. Two years later he turned his back on weaving and established a metal pressing workshop. Hans Grohe had a passion for water, and so from 1901 onwards he bravely hedged his bets on the sanitary sector, which was still in its early stages of development. Of course, bathrooms in private houses were only just becoming fashionable at that time. He specialized in tin showers, thus laying the foundations for untold success. During the course of the 20th century, Hans Grohe’s small three-man operation in the Kinzigtal Valley developed into a global company. Today it is one of the international innovation and market leaders for Kitchen Mixers and Showers.
From 1928, Hans Grohe’s hand shower became a convenient alternative to the then customary overhead shower. Hans Grohe became a shower specialist and pioneer for the German sanitary industry. For many decades his craftsmanship and design set the trends. Even as an 82-year-old, this visionary invented something trend-setting: the wall bar, to which the hand shower can be attached at the desired height. Today it is common in bathrooms all over the world – in 1953 it was a stroke of bathroom genius.
Today, this Kitchen Mixer and Bathroom specialist employs more than 3,500 workers in the small Black Forest town of Schiltach, bathroom history is still being written.
