In 1853, mill owner Daniel Straub, together with the Schweizer brothers, Louis and Friedrich, established the Straub & Schweizer metal works in Geislingen an der Steige, Germany. Only a few years later in 1862, their silver-plated tableware and serving dishes were awarded a medal of distinction at the world exhibition in London.
Six years later, the first sales subsidiary was founded in Berlin. In 1880, the company merged with the metal works company Ritter & Co. to form the Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF). From the very outset, the company has felt committed to perfect gourmet moments and perfect cuisine.
This responsibility is visible and tangible in all its products.
