Company History

From carpet factory to international group

In 1883, the brothers Carl and Adolf Vorwerk founded the carpet factory Barmer Teppichfabrik Vorwerk & Co. in Wuppertal. 
Since then, Vorwerk has developed into a highly diversified, international corporate group.

We invite you to join us on a journey through time, as we retrace the history of Vorwerk.
