Who Are Nolte Kitchens?

Nolte Kitchens

Nolte kitchens is the second biggest kitchen brand in Germany. By concentrating on a consistent corporate philosophy, Nolte kitchens has become an efficient and innovative company since being founded in 1958.

They may not be the biggest German kitchen manufacturer just like Jaguar Landrover isn’t the bigger global exporter of cars, but just like Jaguar Landrover, it is a quality product with growing consumer appeal

The company stands for kitchens with high quality standards, designed and made in Germany and that offer that distinctive look which is absolutely perfect. Nolte Kitchens can be combined in so many different ways that they perfectly match your style, the size of your rooms and your budget, with combinations in unit heights and depths, mixed materials and lots of factory made accessories to complement the ultimate German kitchen.

New website launched along inhouse trade show for 2013 Designs

In time for the start of the annual inhouse trade fair on September 15th Nolte Küchen had launched a new website under their address www.nolte-kitchens.com.

On the new Nolte Küchen site, the company presents itself according to its recently announced target audience concept and with new content such as the Kitchen Filter and a new Kitchen Planner. Social Media is also going to be part of the package.

It is worth noting that Nolte Kitchens are one of the only Home Interiors brands other than Ikea to offer a stunning iPad app.

Nolte CEO Ralf Jourdan is delighted about this step: “We see digital communication, from our own website to Social Media contents such as Facebook, as a great chance in terms of communicating with our customers. We also see the potential when it comes to improving the way we can deal with their requirements and requests.”

Nolte Küchen already caught the attention of trade and end customers alike by launching an iPad App last year as mentioned above. This presented a way to check out the company’s products on a mobile basis and proved to be a practical tool during sales presentations as well as when preparing a visit to a dealer on the customer’s side.

The graphical user interface of the new website is based on the way content is provided on tablet PCs. It invites end customers to explore the Nolte Küchen ranges. The main focus is on the presentation of the different kitchen types in line with the new target group concept and on all the various planning options. Information on the company itself is given in a separate area of the website. The Search for Dealers and the Dealer Login remain part of the service package.

Both the Kitchen Filter and the Kitchen Planner provide an easy access for “curious kitchen planners” to designing their dream kitchen. The Kitchen Filter allows them to choose according to colour, surface and material. Various types of units can be arranged easily with the Kitchen Planner, which also provides suggestions in terms of layouts and design. All results as well as favourite kitchen ranges can be saved to a personal profile and stored or printed as a PDF.
