First American Miele plant in Alabama


Miele’s first plant on the American continent will be in Opelika, in the State of Alabama: production is scheduled to start by the end of 2024, and in the first phase the new site will occupy 150 employees. The plant will enable the company to produce the ovens and range cookers specifically designed for USA, Canada and Mexico. Later, the matching cooker hoods will also be produced here. “This reduces the delivery time from up to ten weeks today to just a few days in a customer-friendly way and also reduces the impact on the climate”, comments Stefan Breit, Executive Director Technology at the Miele Group.
