Embracing change is good. If you remain true to yourself.

We are proud of our history and past achievements. But we’re equally excited by what lies ahead. We are combining our heritage with the future – and synthesising the best of yesterday with the best of tomorrow. That’s the only way to create innovative products that are Grundig through and through.

More than 70 years – and we’re just getting started!

Grundig Intermedia GmbH’s roots lie in the traditional German company, Grundig, which was founded in 1945 and achieved world fame with its radios and televisions. In 2007 Grundig Intermedia GmbH was acquired by Arçelik, the white goods manufacturer of a leading Fortune 200 conglomerate, Koç Holding.

 

Grundig is one of the world’s leading providers of products in the areas of entertainment electronics, small electrical appliances and major home appliances. By expanding its product portfolio to the white goods sector, the brand became Europe’s only full-range consumer electronics brand in 2013.

 

The company’s head office is located in Nuremberg and has a current workforce of 140 employees, working in the areas of Sales, Marketing, Industrial Design, Quality and Product Management, Technology and Customer Service. Moreover, there are 1,600 employees working for Grundig in more than 65 countries.

 

Since 2011, Grundig has been the first official technology partner of the German Football League and in 2013 the brand acquired the naming right for the Nuremberg Stadium.

 

YEARS 1945-1954

1945: Immediately after the war, Germany was in ruins. This was also true for many radios. Since new production was out of the question, the demand for repair work was very great. Radio dealer Max Grundig recognised the signs of the times and built the first two Grundig appliances: the Tubatest tube tester and the Novatest testing device.
