Blum history

More than 50 years in motion

The Blum name stands for innovation, motivated employees and top-quality products. Julius Blum founded his company on 1 March 1952 and produced his first product: A horseshoe stud.

Blum has been conceiving, developing and building brilliantly functional and ergonomic home storage solutions for more than 50 years.

Amazingly smooth, superbly damped motion for doors, pull-outs and lift systems combined with outstanding use of storage space is the Blum hallmark.

Around the world some 5,300 employees are realising our goal of creating perfect motion for Blum systems, focusing always on the needs of our demanding customers. We have seven factories in Vorarlberg, in Western Austria, as well as production facilities in the United States, Brazil and Poland, delivering to more than 100 countries.

The Blum brand

Blum turns the opening and closing of furniture into an experience that significantly increases the comfort of motion in all areas of the house, but especially the kitchen. Over 5000 employees are working worldwide realising our goal to create perfect motion for Blum fittings systems. Within this process, we always focus on the needs of the kitchen and furniture user.

Our fittings systems shout high quality with their well-thought-out function, recognised design and high durability. They are designed to spark inspiration and create an emotional experience out of day-to-day kitchen tasks.

We support our partners with a comprehensive range of products and services. In order to stay on track to achieve our goals, we keep a constant dialogue open with kitchen manufacturers, joiners, distributors and kitchen users all over the world.

Perfecting motion

The Blum mission is summed up by our core principle: Perfecting Motion. Our goal is to make the opening and closing of furniture all over the house but especially in the kitchen a special experience. The same goes for commercial offices, retail showrooms, hotels and food and beverage outlets.

All our products AVENTOS lift systems, TANDEMBOX pull-out systems, TANDEM runner systems, CLIP hinges and ORGA-LINE dividing systems are designed to inspire with perfect motion: movement so silent and effortless it has to be seen to be believed.
