The birth of the Blomberg brand dates back to 1883 when the company, founded by Bernhard Blomberg, started operating in Germany in the metallurgical industry. Gradually, the company left the metallurgy business, established a distribution channel for home appliances in 1935. In 1979 Blomberg produced the first washing machine with outer balance control in Germany. In 1981 it manufactured the first fully automatic washing machine. In 2002 Blomberg was acquired by Arçelik, the 3rd largest appliance manufacturer in Europe. In 2004 a brand new Blomberg product range with free standing and built-in lines was internationally relaunched. In 2009 the second generation of Blomberg products following the brand’s rebirth, has been introduced to the world.
