Main Vorwerk group dates

thumbnail for this post

Carl and Adolph Vorwerk founded the Group in Germany in 1883. Before producing robots in our modern times, the group manufactured high-end carpets and rugs. In 1929, in search of the most efficient solution for carpet care, the group created the first carpet vacuum cleaner under the brand name Kobold. In 1930, the Group began home sales, which over the years became its core business.
