Miele has been owned and run by the Miele and Zinkann families since it was founded by Carl Miele and Reinhard Zinkann in 1899. However, things have moved on a bit since its inception with global turnover exceeding €3bn.

The Miele brand has become renowned for the German manufacturing excellence and relies heavily on the assertion that its products are tested to last 20 years. This said, this world leading domestic appliance manufacturer does not rest of its laurels; following the company’s philosophy of ‘Immer Besser’ or ‘Forever Better’, Miele continue to innovate and launch next generation of appliances.
