Wilhelm Seibel I founded the Seibel Britannia Goods Factory in 1895. In 1911 the first branch factory, Hessische Metallwerke Gebr. Seibel, was founded. The company attained global recognition in 1936 with its Olympia cutlery provided for the Olympic Village in Berlin. Thanks to the very healthy economy of the post-war years, staffing increased to almost 1000 employees. In the 1950s, a major decline in the cutlery industry resulted in the demise of almost 90% of all German manufacturers. Thanks to the bold decision by Herbert Seibel to focus on design-oriented products, a collapse of the Hessische Metallwerke was avoided.
