Facts and Figures 2023

Schmidt + Clemens Group 2023

2023 was an eventful year. The ongoing Russian war of aggression against Ukraine and the terrorist attack on Israel have unsettled us all. On the purchasing side, we were able to secure our supply of materials, while energy costs unfortunately remain at highs. Nevertheless, the year was marked by good capacity utilization at our sites.

At around EUR 356 million, the Group’s turnover in 2023 was almost 11% higher than in the previous year. The balance sheet total increased from around EUR 191 million to EUR 226 million. The equity ratio was around 54%. The S+C Group achieved a positive financial result despite the difficult conditions mentioned above.


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 more than 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


2023 was a year of many major global challenges. Nevertheless, it was a successful year for Schmidt + Clemens: Once again in 2023, the company maintained its position as world market leader in centrifugally cast tube systems for the petrochemical industry, and has now also taken on a leading role in the service segment. S+C recorded a very good operating result thanks to a significant increase in orders and various improvement measures.

The key to our success lies within the company itself: The tireless commitment and exceptional adaptability of both the management team and all our employees have contributed significantly to this success. After all, the conditions that this family business faced in 2023 were extremely adverse. The introduction of a semicontinuous shift at the Kaiserau production site was necessary in order to cope with the large order backlog and increase production volumes. Bottlenecks in the supply of materials were avoided thanks to successful procurement management. Energy costs remained extremely high.

Company Performance


Turnover in the group of companies in 2023 was around 356 million Euros, almost 11% higher than in the previous year. The balance sheet total increased from around 191 million Euros to 226 million Euros. The equity ratio was around 54%. A forecast for the 2024 financial year is still difficult at present. We must assume that electricity and gas prices will remain at a very high level. Many geopolitical uncertainties remain.

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.

The foundations of our environmental policy

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.
