Albert Northdurft started as a shop fitter. The word of his high quality handcraft quickly spread, and he began to build a professional business.

 

Since 1927, Alno kitchens have stood for high quality, sensible innovations, and award winning design “Made in Germany”, fundamental values of a brand that quickly gained an international reputation. From the “reddot design” award, to the German “kitchen innovation” Award of the year, Alno goes above and beyond your typical household kitchen.

 

Today Alno is one of the world’s leading kitchen manufacturers, thanks to the company’s many years of tradition, skill and expertise that it has acquired over the course of its 85 years. Alno kitchens were recently awarded as one of Germany’s best and strongest products and brands, and in 2013 Alno has been awarded with the prestigious title “Brand of the Century”.
