Kitchens by Nobilia

At 70 years from its founding, Nobilia, with its two production sites in Germany, has proven itself to be a European market leader.

Continuously strengthening the company’s role in terms of environmental protection and sustainability is an objective that forms an key element of the company’s philosophy. That is why Nobilia is committed to giving equal weight to economic, environmental and social factors.

From the arrival of the materials at the production site to delivery of the finished product, Nobilia has created a complex system of oversight that covers each stage of the process, so as to ensure that every single kitchen it creates is of the highest quality. Quality, respect for the environment and energy efficiency are fundamental elements of Nobilia’s corporate policy.

In the in-house quality-control testing lab, furniture, components and materials are subjected to numerous test procedures, both to guarantee their suitability for everyday use and to ensure that they will have a lifespan of at least 15 years.
