Bulthaup GmbH & Co KG, based in Aich/Bodenkirchen, has been developing and producing kitchen and space systems in the premium segment since 1949. Multiple national and international distinctions confirm the success of the family-run mid-size company. These include, for example, fifth place in the “German Luxury Ranking of the 30 Top Brands 2018” of the manager magazin journal.
The company’s success story begins in the 1950s. Martin Bulthaup buys a sawmill in Bodenkirchen, not far from where the company’s headquarters are based today, to pursue new, modern, and efficient ways of working and designing furniture. At first Bulthaup makes kitchen sideboards made from superlative materials and exhibiting an exceptional level of craftsmanship. At the beginning, the team comprises seven men and women.
Today, the grandson of the company founder, Marc O. Eckert, leads the tradition-steeped company with more than 500 employees at the site in Aich. Approximately 10,000 premium kitchens (bulthaup b3, b2, and b1) are produced every year and delivered to over 55 countries worldwide. Each kitchen is planned individually for the specific customer and produced to order.
Design, development, and production are closely intermeshed with each other. Even before the first design drawing, all ergonomic, esthetic, technical, and production-related aspects are taken into account. The experience of many years is based on the research and development of, for example, new material technologies, such as the technically extremely sophisticated surface treatment of lacquer, laminate, and veneer.
At bulthaup, nothing is left to chance. In the production hall, modern industrial manufacturing technologies meet time-honored craftmanship. From the outset, it has always been, and continues to be, the employees who, with great love of detail, decide on the quality of material and processing: in the selection of veneer woods, in the refinement of surfaces, or the manual working of edges and, since last year, also in the company’s own solid timber production and metal processing. In the process, bulthaup employees create what even the best technology cannot produce: material authenticity and perfection that can be experienced with all of the senses. Thus, kitchens are produced that are tailored to the person with their individual needs as well as to the architecture of the available space. Kitchens that make life easier, in which moments are created that transform into memories.
