Ariston was founded by Aristide Merloni in 1930 as a family owned business in Fabriano, Italy. Originally manufacturing weight scales, we quickly diversified to manufacturing domestic appliances such as: cooktops, hot water systems, and liquid gas cylinders. In 1960, we launched our laundry and dishwashing machines along with the Unibloc oven which won the prestigious “Gold Compass Award”, Italy’s highest honor in Industrial design and manufacturing.
Ariston quickly became Italy’s number 1 appliance brand and to this day has over 40% market share of appliances sold in the Italian market. Today, Ariston is a part of the world’s leading global manufacturer of home appliances, with approximately $21 billion in annual sales, 93,000 employees and 70 manufacturing and technology research centers worldwide. Our growth and success has been attributed by our brand values that have not changed for over 80 years: Care, Empathy, Loyalty and our brand pillars: Extended Capabilities, Proven Performance and Authentic Design. Ariston has always valued our user’s needs and wishes. We constantly keep up-to-date with consumers to predict their future needs and understand how to improve the way we help them today in their everyday lives with high quality solutions.
