De Dietrich was founded in 1684 and the business was initially centred in the ironworking trade. De Dietrich gradually expanded into other areas such as the steel sector, decorative ironwork and railway rolling stock. It was not until two and a quarter centuries after its foundation that De Dietrich branched out into the domestic appliance market. Its début appliance in 1910 was the Mertzwiller Cooker.
