ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS – THANK YOU, PETER Way back in 1731 Peter Henckels had the idea to register the ZWILLING trademark with the Cutler’s Guild of Solingen, Germany. A brilliant idea, in our opinion. Because that makes ZWILLING one of the oldest brands in the world today. And Germans are well known for their love of traditions. So thanks for that.

THE PAST PREPARED US FOR THE FUTURE

Imagine you have a 287-year-old brand history that you are eager to share with everyone. But at the same time you are a modern, forward thinking company that is all about future cooking trends and technologies. Both are really important. Which is why we’re going to tell you about both parts separately. Let’s start with where we started.

FIRST THINGS FIRST

ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS Flagship Store Shanghai Taikoo Hui

YOU NEVER JUST BUY A PRODUCT

Maybe you think we are talking about the fact that every knife is also a piece of history and an example for extraordinary craftsmanship–and you are right. But there is more.

Our shops are no longer just places where you can buy products–they now can open a culinary world of their own to the customer. A leading example is the new World Flagship Store Taikoo Hui in Shanghai, where a unique shopping experience is combined with places of exploration and discovery such as restaurants, a cooking school and a local market.

A STRONG LINEUP

PROUD PART OF THE WERHAHN GROUP

Since 1970 ZWILLING has belonged to the Werhahn Group. Like ZWILLING, Werhahn is a family company with a long tradition that shares our values and innovative thinking. Together we have grown even bigger and Werhahn has fueled our innovation engine. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

ZWILLING PLUS - WE ARE MORE

A successful company has a lot in common with a great recipe: The better the ingredients, the better the result. In the case of ZWILLING, those “ingredients“ are the people that work with us. And for the best results we add some really special “spices“.
