On 15 February 1930, Heinrich Rabe and Wilhem Meyer founded the company in Bünde, East Westphalia. Under the name of Rabe & Meyer, it manufactured cigar boxes and then later evolved into the production of sewing boxes and wooden toys.
From there, the manufacturer moved into kitchen furniture during the post-war era, establishing itself as an international premium brand. Today, it produces sustainable kitchen furniture by virtue of its carbon-neutral manufacturing process that came into effect on 1 January 2020.
Matt Phillips, Head of UK Operations at Rotpunkt says “We feel very proud to reach such a notable landmark of 90 years in the kitchen furniture industry and since origin, both brand and business have constantly evolved to meet the challenges of modern-day furniture design.
“Rotpunkt is committed to the production of high design, eco-oriented kitchen solutions that offer long-term profitability and sustainable core-attributes.”
