Small Domestic Electrical Appliances Division

The Small Domestic Electrical Appliances Division represents the interests of the household-appliance industry in the fields of economy, technology and standardisation towards policy-makers and the social environment.


The Small Domestic Electrical Appliances Division is made up of 41 companies which achieved domestic sales of around € 2.4 billion together in the year 2012.

The sector of small appliance manufacturers is characterised by the medium-sized structure of the manufacturers. The resulting variety of brands and products in turn benefits potential buyers.

The division offers a platform for the exchange of views and experiences between the member companies on current technical, economic, legal and socio-political topics in the field of the Electrical Industry.

In the division, common industry positions are developed and represented towards politicians, the authorities, associations and other interest groups. The division works for the common interests of manufacturers at the German and European level.

The member companies enjoy access to a wide range of services. The ZVEI supports them with information on economic, technical, commercial and legal issues.

The members benefit from the close contact of the ZVEI with politicians and interest groups, as well as the exchange of experiences across associations.
