About Miele

Miele History

Miele is a German family-owned company, manufacturing premium domestic and professional appliances world-wide. Based in 47 international locations with over 16,700 employees, Miele is a company that is respected and trusted in the industry. 

In 1899, Carl Miele and Reinhard Zinkann started their business with the production of cream separators and butter churns. 1901 was followed by washing machines, bicycles, mopeds and even automobiles. Miele’s focus gradually evolved to its present core competence, namely the production of high quality domestic and professional appliances. 

“Immer besser” / “Forever better”: These two words are what characterise Miele as both a promise to the customer as well as an incentive for employees. In practice, this means that Miele has the aspiration to improve their products and services continuously and to do everything possible to be better than the competitors in all aspects including innovation.  

Miele commenced operation in Australia in 1980 and in New Zealand in 2008. As a subsidiary, Miele Australia and New Zealand have over 500 employees and continue to strive for growth and success in the market.
