The power of community


Being the best among the competition is one of the foundations for ensuring long-term business success. It was with this idea in mind that Ernst-Martin Schaible founded DER KREIS, a buying and services group for medium-sized kitchen specialists, near Stuttgart in 1979. While the group’s activities initially focused on securing optimal buying conditions for kitchen specialists, over the years, DER KREIS Germany has since developed into a complete solution provider for specialist retails along with the entire buying group.

Our motto is to support our specialist retailers on site so that they can focus on their core competences such as consulting customers, planning, and installing individually designed kitchens. Whenever desired or necessary, the kitchen specialist can draw from a diverse palette of promising services that will allow him/her to become and remain the number 1 competitor in the region.
