ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

Eastern Westphalia? It’s the cradle of the kitchen industry. And us? We’re Pronorm, and we’re right in the middle of it. But we believe we are more than just another player. We are not interchangeable - in most cases, our competitors don’t even compare. We put customers, not products, at the centre of all we do and think. What does the customer need? What appeals to them? What are their expectations, requirements, and values? By answering these questions, we can develop what makes us stand out and what makes us so unique: Exactly the right kitchen, meeting the highest expectations for quality, with a modern, yet timeless design. Of course, our kitchens are always made in Germany, right here in Vlotho, as sustainably as possible. They are then perfectly planned and implemented via regional dealers, and installed to be the heart of a family's cooking, living space, and life for many years to come, around the world.

OUR VAL­UES

It all starts with an idea. We develop and research, produce and deliver based on that idea. We are driven by the will to do and deliver our best, day by day, with regional design and global implementation. A good idea? It doesn’t just come off the shelf. Even today, good ideas remain the result of creativity, experience, and curiosity. All of these values lie in us, paired with the strong desire to continuously develop ourselves and our products. With the ideas of today, prepared for the future.

You can achieve a goal alone. But you will rarely achieve all of your aims. Because of this, we have always trusted in people and partners who stand by our side. From customers to employees or our suppliers: We know how important all of these people are as our equal partners. Because of this, we meet them with trust, transparency, clarity, openness, and respectfulness. Or, in a word: appreciation.

Our products are the work of many hands. Our employees always stand behind them as a team. That is how we understand ourselves and our everyday work: We can only achieve the goals we set for ourselves together. With each individual, with their ideas, their strengths, and even their weaknesses. Because we know that innovation and quality only become a reality when people are seen, appreciated, supported, and challenged.

Our customers are our focus. Everything we think and do revolves around our customers. When time is a factor, we always move quickly and cautiously, if an idea needs time to mature. We think dynamically when we look forward, and with an eye to tradition, when we think about our roots. For our customers, this means that they get everything we are. Our values, our history, and our vision, combined in one product perfectly tailored to the customer and their needs.

We like to look back, but we normally look forward. Because we know we have not yet arrived at our goal. We can always be just a little bit better, and further hone our skills. We go with the times, while remaining timeless. We pursue our goals – even if we know we will never arrive, never be fully satisfied. And that is what we work for each and every day: To get just one step closer to this goal for our product and our customers.
