Domestic & General is delighted to announce its partnership with Miele Australia to provide a full range of warranty services.

Over the past thirty years Miele Australia has become widely acknowledged as the country's premium supplier of high-end domestic appliances and commercial equipment, Miele Australia was the company's first subsidiary outside of Europe, and is widely respected for its quality and customer care. Since 2009, when Miele Australia and Domestic & General began piloting a warranty programme, over 16,000 customers have joined through a combination of point of sale products and direct mail.

Alex Goody, Sales Director for Domestic & General said, "Miele is one of the best known and well-respected brands in the household appliance sector, and our partnership to date has been extremely successful. We are looking forward to developing our warranty products even further, and helping Miele to continue to provide a first class customer experience."

Michael Jeanes, Managing Director of Miele Australia, said, "Our customers expect not only first class product, but also first class service and care throughout the long lifetime of a Miele appliance. We have worked hard to build this level of trust over the past thirty years, and are extremely pleased that Domestic & General will be helping us continue to provide this service in the future."
