Made in Germany
Unfortunately, the term “Made in Germany” is no longer clearly defined, as products for which individual components or even entire assemblies are purchased abroad may now also be described as “Made in Germany”. Products are therefore also defined as “Made in Germany” if only the final assembly is carried out in the factory in Germany.
However, the claim of Gebr. Knapstein GmbH is higher in this case. As a member of the Association of German Manufacturers, the following criteria must be met:
- Craft enterprise with headquarters in Germany
- Artisanal production must take place in Germany
- at least 50 % of the production is handmade
- Company size between 5 and 200 employees
- Materiality of the product
- Qualified training of young people
- Promotion of the respective craftsmanship and culture
All these criteria were reviewed and certified by the association in a one-day audit in January 2019. More information can be found on the website of the Verband Deutsche Manufakturen.
