Logo of the Kärcher brand


Kärcher is the world's leading supplier of cleaning technology. With the invention of the first European hot water high-pressure cleaner in 1950, the foundation was laid for the company's development into the world's leading cleaning specialist. With high-pressure cleaners, sweepers, vacuum cleaners, hard floor, steam and window cleaners, garden tools as well as pump and irrigation systems for house and garden, Kärcher offers innovative problem solutions.

Innovation is the most important growth factor for the company and has been an essential part of the company culture since the foundation of the company in 1935: about 90 % of all products are five years old or younger.

Since 1980, Kärcher has been committed to the preservation of historical monuments and buildings as part of its cultural sponsorship programme and has so far demonstrated its experience and competence in over 140 projects worldwide. These include the colonnades of St. Peter's Square in Rome, the statue of Christ in Rio de Janeiro and the presidential heads on Mount Rushmore - Kärcher cleans the world!
