First-class product quality is no accident. High-grade materials, well thought-out design and careful planning form the basis for quality. However, the decisive factor is production, i.e. the actual manufacture of the respective item.

Always there, where there’s pleasure 

Every day, more than 100 million people around the world use products from WMF, Silit and Kaiser to prepare, cook, bake, eat and drink in their homes. And when they are not doing that, they are enjoying coffee specialities and foods prepared by the hotel and catering industry using WMF, Schaerer, Curtis and Hepp products.
