Company history

Since 1991, the family business Karcher GmbH Design Beschläge has been inspiring customers with its design-oriented door fittings and accessories. After brand development, expansion of the product range and office building, the export was established in Europe. Karcher Design N.A. LLC was founded in Seattle/USA in 2015 to strengthen direct sales on the American market.

Karcher Design celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2016. In these 25 years, the company was able to successfully establish its significant market position. Since the turn of the millennium, our positioning as an innovative, design-oriented brand in the premium segment has also been expanded beyond the borders of Europe and around the globe.

At the end of 2018 the management of the company was completely handed over to the children Jan and Isabel Karcher.
