But the "SieMatic family" also includes all who work internationally in and for the company. Everyone has a different task, but all have the same goal: preferring the best. Photo: Employees August-Siekmann-Möbelwerke in 1929.

Ideally positioned for the future

For over 90 years our family business has been shaping the kitchen industry with design classics, intelligent solutions and unmistakable quality. Since the beginning of 2020, SieMatic has been a full member of the internationally successful, family-run Nison Group based in the Chinese metropolis of Suzhou. Production and development are carried out in the best tradition "Made in Germany" at the founding location in Westphalia. SieMatic is headed by the Managing Directors Hanjo Runde, CEO and
Oliver Henle, CFO. 

With a clear investment strategy in growth, employees, manufacturing and digitalization of our business model as well as in the modernization of the brand, we want to shape the future in partnership - based on existing values and a modern, open corporate culture.

Responsible company management in three generations

August Siekmann laid the foundation for industrial furniture production after the first World War as a partner in a carpentry operation. After a ten-year partnership, he continued to lead the company and founded the August-Siekmann-Möbelwerke furniture factory in 1929, making a name for itself across regional borders in manufacturing kitchen furniture. He passed away in 1955 at the only 61 years of age. His motto "preferring the best" drives the company today.

In 1955, August-Wilhelm Siekmann took over the management of his father's business. With the development of the revolutionary SieMatic 60 in 1960, he coined a new name for the company that became an epitome of modern kitchens. As the originator of the SieMatic brand, he transformed the family business into an international company over the course of his extraordinarily long career. In 1994, he handed the reins of management to his son Ulrich W. Siekmann. August-Wilhelm Siekmann passed away on August 29, 2004.

"To meet the individual needs and growing demands of our customers, we want to do more than build first-class kitchens. Together with international designers and SieMatic experts around the world, we create habitats of timeless elegance that perfectly reflect the personality of their owners. We call it 'SieMatic Kitchen Interior Design.'"

Ulrich W. Siekmann, the third generation of the SieMatic family to head the internationally expanding family business until 2020, will continue to provide SieMatic with his expertise.
