Amefa celebrating 90 years of its journey

Amefa has set tables across the world since 1931! Giving you an exceptional dining experience.

This year represents a milestone for Amefa, as we are celebrating our 90-year existence.

The ‘Apeldoornse Messenfabriek’ (Knife Factory Apeldoorn) was founded by Eugen Hollaender in 1931 when he moved, at the age of 25, to Apeldoorn (the Netherlands) from Germany and started his own business in razor blades. In the next 20 years, he developed the Amefa business, but growing competition in the ’40s made him decide to aim at developing and producing cutlery, in addition to razor blades. At the end of the ’40s, the production of razor blades came to a full stop and cutlery became Amefa’s prime product.

90 years later, we are proud to say Amefa is one of the main players worldwide in cutlery, tableware and kitchenware. We serve our clients through our seven subsidiaries located in Hong Kong, the Netherlands, France, Germany, the UK, Poland and the US. With more than 400 active patterns, selling over 500,000 products a day in 65 countries worldwide, with 250 dedicated employees who know everything about setting tables, both in hospitality and retail.

We are also proud to announce ‘Opus’, one of our new patterns, has won the first price in the Flatware category for the 2021 Tableware International Awards of Excellence. ‘Opus’ was selected among 176 nominations and awarded by international retailers, designers and industry experts. An outstanding performance in this very popular category with strong competition.

With our premium brands Couzon (cutlery and hollowware), Richardson Sheffield (kitchen knives), Medard de Noblat (porcelain tableware) and Lou Laguiole (steak knives and cutlery), we are ready to make the years till our century milestone and beyond count.

Amefa is already set on tables throughout Asia Pacific, and we look forward to setting your tables too.
