Facts + Figures

Schmidt + Clemens Group 2021

2021 was now the second financial year of the coronavirus pandemic. It is still a major challenge for us to maintain contact with our worldwide partners. The vast majority of trade shows and conferences were cancelled or postponed into the year 2022. Travel restrictions also meant that we were unable to visit customers. But especially for us, as technological market leaders in our sector, it is important to identify trends at an early stage and develop individual solutions in consultation with our customers. We made use of video conferencing as well as virtual and hybrid trade show concepts so, as to still be able to offer the best possible service.

In spite of the difficult operating conditions of the world economy, we nevertheless achieved a good result in 2021.The adoption in good time of measure to protect against coronavirus infection meant that we avoided any significant rates of staff absence. Only the flooding that occurred in July of last year resulted in damage to both the buildings and machinery. The building restoration work and other repairs are now largely completed.


Schmidt + Clemens is an independent family enterprise that is proud of its tradition of more than 140-year and is looking with confidence into the future. We know our strengths, are continually building on them, and utilize them for the specific benefit of our customers. Values are the basis for everything we do.

Schmidt + Clemens Group


The market conditions in which the family enterprise found itself having to operate in 2021 were more than challenging. The coronavirus pandemic, political crises, raw material shortages, supply bottlenecks and problems in worldwide logistics resulted in difficult, instable markets and business processes right across the board. Nevertheless, even in these tough times, S+C succeeded, thanks to the indefatigable effort and extraordinary flexibility of both the management and the entire workforce, in achieving a good operating result.

Company Performance


Sales in 2021 increased by about 49 million euros compared to the previous year, but in view of global economic conditions we were able to close the fiscal year with a good result. This was due on the one hand to a consistent cost-cutting program and on the other to the implementation of measures from the “Ambition 2020” corporate strategy. The balance sheet total was increased to €182,777k.
