Warendorf prides itself on producing the highest quality kitchen, with the best precision and best craftsmanship in the market today.  The company began in 1973, when the owner of appliance manufacturer Miele & Cie, fulfilled his dream to build his own factory to make the best kitchen in the world. 

Today Germany-based Warendorf is a leading high-end kitchen design company. Focusing on a contemporary luxury design style, its innovative ideas have produced a new approach to kitchen design. During this past year, the company has won three international design prizes; the German Design Award, the Interior Design Award and the Red Dot Design Award. 

While talking with Warendorf's CEO, Manfred Van Ginkel during his visit to the EuroAmerica Design showroom, we learned about some of the innovative ideas the company has introduced to the kitchen. Warendorf is known for its patented folding carcass design which is built without nails or screws – the only one like it in the industry. The manufacturer has created a way to fold the wood and glue it together, to create the most durable cabinet made.  Warendorf also engineers its products in a minimalistic fashion so they are the exact measurements customers order every time, making their precision unmatched in the industry.   

Manfred stressed that German quality sets Warendorf apart from the rest of the kitchen design industry, comparing it to the impeccable engineering of German automobiles. Their patented folding designs, high standards for materials, and commitment to precision determine the unparalleled quality of a true Warendorf design.
