to learn from, and this also applies to companies. It is essential to react to the change of times, like development, technology or economical changes which affect a company.  These are the issues which will be continued in the future history of our company.

A traditional company since 1889


The market development of large-scale catering already began in the year 1889, when Wilhelm Stierlen founded a construction- and locksmithery company.

1895 marked the beginning of a new factory, where steel baking pan were manufacture.

In 1929 the range of products was increased, and bakery machines and dishwashers were added.

A milestone was achieved in the year 1978 by the introduction of the thermalware dishes „ThermoSet“ in Germany.

Today the traditional company is  a 100% member of the Ali-Group, which is based in Milan, Italy. Products that carry the name Stierlen are known for their high quality and innovation.
