Founded by Horst Karcher in 1968, we are a trading company with decades of experience in the product segments of consumer electronics, household products and vehicles.
We offer a wide product Portfolio which enables us to quickly respond to customer needs and market demands and to use chances for growth.
Based on the continuous growth, the Karcher group of companies that so far consisted of several independent companies, was merged into Karcher AG in 2012 - a non-listed stock company. This has marked an important step towards expansion, transparency, success and internationality.
We as Karcher AG are manufacturer for own products that we distribute under our own brand names, as well as partner and exclusive distributor in Germany for well-established international companies.
All product segments operate independently, use different sales channels and are managed by its own director.
One thing, however, connects all segments:
The name Karcher stands for quality, know kow and tradition.
We have a lot of different products. The one thing they all have in common, however, is our high demand in quality. We select our factories based on careful and continuous audits of work and production conditions, and each production run is supervised by our own staff on location.
We listen to our customers - our curiosity and the constant desire to make our products even better, enable us to quickly respond to market demands.
Our engineers with all their know how are highly involved in the development of new products and are continuously working on their improvement and optimization.
We at Karcher know how important a competent and efficient service is. Our own service center enables us to check and repair claimed products within a short time frame, and our hotline supports consumers by answering questions and providing quick solutions. Through our online RMA portal, consumers can check the status of their RMA at all times.
