The name Schmidt + Clemens has stood for high-quality special steel solutions for more than 140 years. Be it spun casting, static casting, investment casting or forgings, we will face your challenges head on.
The Schmidt + Clemens Group is active on the international stage. Besides its German headquarters in Lindlar-Kaiserau, S+C also has production facilities in Spain, the Czech Republic, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia. Our distribution company in the USA combined with more than 30 commercial agencies consolidate our global presence.
At the head of the Schmidt + Clemens group in the fourth generation of the family is managing partner Jan Schmidt-Krayer who is taking over the chairmanship of the board. Another managing director is Dominic Otte, for the Production & Technology department. Together, they have worldwide responsibility for the family firm’s business.
The framework conditions that the family business had to face in 2022 were more than challenging. First the pandemic, then the highly dramatic political crisis with the resulting shortage of raw materials, with the supply bottlenecks and the problems in global logistics made for consistently difficult business processes and unstable markets.
In addition, there were unprecedented cost increases for electricity and natural gas in the energy sector, which hit the German plant particularly hard. Nevertheless, even in these extremely difficult times, S+C has managed to achieve a good operating result – thanks to untiring efforts and exceptional flexibility on the part of the management team and all colleagues.
Passion - Innovation - Tradition, three words that could not describe our family business better. With great passion for stainless steel, we are committed to a sustainable future. Thus, we have firmly anchored in our corporate strategy that we help to use the earth's resources more sustainably. This requires constant innovation, which also consolidates our leading position in the market. We can look back on a tradition of almost 145 years. A time in which we have been able to make many experiences that make us a reliable partner, worldwide, at all times!Schmidt + Clemens Group
2022 was a very eventful year. The coronavirus pandemic and disrupted supply chains were one thing, the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine was another. The war led to sanctions and counter-sanctions, culminating in an energy crisis due to our government's totally misguided energy policy. The result was unprecedented cost increases for electricity and gas, which also hit us hard as a company.
But the year also had many pleasant events in store for us. After a long time, we were able to meet our business partners in person again for the first time at numerous trade fairs and conferences. This was a nice feeling and a return to more normality. Our Czech subsidiary, S+C ALFANAMETAL, celebrated its 25th anniversary in September.Company Performance
Turnover in the group of companies in 2022 was around 322 million Euros, almost six percent higher than in the previous year. The balance sheet total increased from around 183 million Euros to 191 million Euros. The equity ratio is around 53 percent. Due to the above-mentioned difficult framework conditions, the S+C Group's financial result declined significantly.Revenue
In Addition to its German headquarters in Lindlar-Kaiserau, S+C also operates production sites in Spain, the Czech Republic, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia. All of them have one thing in common: „Made by S+C“ is a hallmark for quality and safety.
In addition, the global presence of S+C is consolidated by our distribution company in the USA combined with more than 30 commercial agencies.

As a company producing steel, S+C is under special obligations in relation to environmental protection, in particular in regard to dust, noise and sewage pollution. An additional focus consists of measures to save energy. The components of our environmental policy are crucially determined by operational conditions, effects on the environment and by the legal parameters that apply to us.
On the basis of its results, management will evaluate how appropriate and effective our management system has been in regard to complying with our environmental policy and, in case of shortcomings, will introduce suitable corrective measures.
We currently meet statutory environmental protection standards. We have made it our objective to ensure the standard that has already been achieved and to advance it further under rapidly evolving market conditions.
Achieving this has prompted us to introduce an environmental management system and to define our environmental policy more concretely with the following guiding principles:Foundations
