German Made Kitchens Since 1927
The history of ALNO is as unique as our kitchens.
The company was founded in 1927 in the workshop of carpenter Albert Nothdurft. Over the next 30 years, the company grew consistently and eventually moved to Pfullendorf, where it is still based today. In 1958 ALNO Möbelwerke GmbH + Co KG was officially founded. In the following decades the company achieved international recognition for its kitchens. In 1995 ALNO became a public limited company and one of Europe’s market leaders. Over 750 employees based at Pfullendorf craft exquisitely designed ALNO kitchens of the highest quality. Across Europe and the world, these kitchens are central to family living.
We have had a passion for building good kitchens for over 80 years, and we know what’s important: first-rate materials, skilled craftsmen, technical precision. We check carefully every stage in the creation of each ALNO branded kitchen, from receipt of goods to final assembly. Unit base panels are tested for resistance to bending. Hinges are tested for long term durability. Surfaces have to pass the abrasion test and prove their resistance to chemicals. Our quality management system, which has been perfected over the years, ensures a high level of production. And some pieces of furniture are even finished off by us by hand. ALNO branded kitchens stand up to daily use – regardless of how much strain you put on them.
A kitchen like this will last for at least 20 years. For the sake of quality, we prefer to have control over every stage of the process – that is why ALNO kitchens are “made in Germany”.
In addition to this, ALNO‘s environmental management system ensures that only environmentally conscious processes are used within the factory. The aim of this system is to achieve a resource-friendly production by identifying and implementing energy saving opportunities, such as encouraging a reduction in water consumption, as well as reducing the waste to an absolute minimum. Continuous training is given to all production employees to ensure responsible use of energy and other resources and in order to protect them from harmful conditions (e.g. how to reduce noise levels). A strict recycling policy is in operation at our production facilities and offices.
