Miele Company History


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 that manufactured cream separators in Herzebrock. Their guiding principle lives on to be the business philosophy to this day: Immer besser.
