ABOUT US

More than 100 years of striving for kitchen perfection

THIS IS EGGERSMANN

We are driven by a passion for aesthetic kitchen furnishings. This perfectionism, which leads to high-end design, clarity and functionality, is in our DNA, so to speak. Our idea of the perfect kitchen is always a timelessly modern unique piece of furniture, which can only be created by individual bespoke production. This is why we remain true to the manufacturing principle of producing exclusively to order, offering customer-specific solutions and maintaining the tradition of craftsmanship. The fact that we always use the latest manufacturing technologies is no contradiction. This, too, is part of our striving for perfection and is in keeping with our joy for innovation. This is how we create kitchens that last – kitchens that stand for timeless values in fast-moving times.

THE COMPANY

Tradition-conscious craftsmanship creating real values and showing a clear commitment to style – that has always been eggersmann's trademark. At the same time, we are a modern state-of-the-art company. We manufacture high-end kitchen systems for people with high demands. Our aim is to find customer-specific solutions that fulfil individual wishes. We can do this because we can draw from a large and constantly growing pool of shapes, designs, materials and surfaces.

Our approximately 11,000 square meter manufacturing facility in the center of the German kitchen furniture industry area has a perfectly equipped, top-modern machine park. Over 100 employees produce around 5,000 kitchens per year, of which around 70 percent are supplied by us to over 40 countries worldwide.

But even our international success has not changed the fact that we are strongly rooted in the East Westphalia region. The company has been in the same family since its foundation and we feel a strong bond with our employees and their families. We value long-established relationships and maintain these with our suppliers and sales partners. They extend this company’s philosophy into the world by building up equally good relationships with our customers.

Because we all share these values, we can reliably deliver the highest quality.

ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY

eggersmann IS sustainability: We rely on manufacture instead of mass production and our kitchens last a lifetime. A responsible use of materials and natural resources is a matter of course for us. In this respect, we have set standards in recent years.

For example, we were the first German manufacturer of kitchen systems to be certified according to the strict requirements of the FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL®. The FSC® is the most renowned and comprehensive certification system for responsible forestry worldwide. It prevents overexploitation at a global level, protects rare species and prevents human rights violations. It is based on the certification of forests according to globally uniform criteria. The FSC® takes into account economic, ecological and social requirements for forests as a resource in equal measure. Annual inspections of all certified companies, both in the forest and in the downstream industries, ensure a high degree of credibility and transparency.

For this reason, FSC® is the only forest certification system that is supported by environmental and social associations as well as the forestry and timber industry.

The triple-ply quality chipboard and MDF-board used for our products is certified according to the strict requirements for the emission according to TSCA Title VI / CARB2 (California Air Resources Board) and is with its formaldehyde emission of ≤ 0,05 ppm significantly below the permitted limit value of the emission class E1 (0,1 ppm).

HISTORY

In 1908, our founder did not plan to make eggersmann the epitome of high-quality unique kitchens. But even then, he worked towards sophisticated bespoke kitchen production with great persistence. The fact that, with so much East Westphalian down-to-earthness, chance had to help a little in order to achieve eggersmann's international success can also be read in our company report under Stories.
