The rich history of SCHMIDT Kitchens starts with Hubert Schimdt, who founded his first detached house company in 1934. About ten years later he set up his company in Germany and started following his passion for making furniture. His business grew substantially but with approximately 90% of his customer base in France, he decided to move his factory in 1959 to Lipvrè, France and went on to employ 57 workers. The company did well, staying relatively the same size and having notable success in France. In 1967, Antonia Schmidt , daughter of Hubert Schmidt, married Karl Leitzgen and under their leadership the company expanded substantially. In 1975, the first SCHMIDT catalogue was released and by 1976 the company had expanded to more than 5 times its original size.


The SCHMIDT Brand continued to build on the building blocks of success expanding to three different production sites expanding their workforce to over 600. A strong customer centric ethos within the company led to 200 advice centers being set up in France by 1989. This gave a leading edge on customer service, giving their customers the ability to call and have their questions about the feel and design of their preferred products and any additional questions about the Schmidt Experience, answered.


2004 saw the company expand beyond the borders of France and today they are represented in 450 showrooms across 25 countries.
