"Miele Vacuum Cleaners, Anything Else Is A Compromise"

The Miele Company's founders believed that "success is only possible in the long term if one is totally and utterly convinced of the quality of one's products". The Miele Company has stayed true to this conviction by consistently manufacturing top of the line products. Carl Miele and Reinhard Zinkann, the founders of Miele vacuums, started their business in 1899 in Germany.

Amazingly enough, The Miele Company has always been a family owned and operated business, even today.Miele started by manufacturing cream separators. It was not until 1927 that they introduced the vacuum cleaner to their growing line of appliances. For more than 75 years, Miele has but its efforts into creating a vacuum cleaner of exceptional quality with an eye toward eliminating dust and air pollutants to create a method that was both healthful and hygienic.
