On this day, an eighth of a millennium ago, in Bielefield, Germany, Friedemir Poggenpohl founded the kitchen brand Poggenpohl. After planning and producing luxury kitchens at the Herford, Germany production plant for 125 years, Poggenpohl is now the world’s longest-established kitchen brand. Impressively, the brand’s custom fitted kitchens, delivered to more than 70 countries, are all produced in its manufacturing area of 54,000m2 in Herford, Germany.
A global network of 450 Poggenpohl studios, employing experienced designers, translate customer dreams into reality, and, in total, Poggenpohl employs around 500 staff worldwide. The brand is distinguished by quality, exclusivity and innovative developments that have resulted in worldwide recognition. More recently, since February 2017, Poggenpohl has been part of the ADCURAM Group AG based in Munich, Germany.
When Friedemir Poggenpohl (1859-1924) founded the company in Bielefeld back in 1892, he did so under the motto “We want to improve the kitchen.” In 1897, the company relocated to Herford, where it still has its head office today.
