Facts + figures 2020

Schmidt + Clemens Group 2020

The fiscal year 2020 was a very challenging one in the history of the Schmidt + Clemens Group. The SARS-CoV-19 virus spread worldwide, resulting in a lockdown in many countries around the world, which was clearly reflected in the global economy.  The propensity to invest decreased significantly. We clearly felt this trend in the Special Products business. Sales declines and short-time working were the result here. We did not notice this trend clearly in the Petrochemicals division. On the contrary, at the beginning of the pandemic we were able to win orders against Asian competitors.

Through early and targeted measures, we were able to ensure the operation of our global production sites even during the pandemic. Appropriate hygiene concepts helped us avert damage to the Group. As a result, we also closed 2020 with a good operating result.

Passion, innovation and tradition sum up what the heart of our independent family business beats for. For over 140 years, we have been meeting the challenges of the global markets. We know our strengths, are continuously expanding them, and apply them in a targeted manner for our customers. Sustainable action characterizes our business. We attach great importance to a long-term business relationship based on partnership. Our cooperation is characterized by respect, tolerance, honesty and a sense of responsibility. We live an open culture of innovation and feedback. We are a reliable and responsive partner for our customers, which is how we repeatedly defend our leading market position.


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.This includes conducting our customer relation ships in a spirit of partnership and pursuing a cooperative personnel management style, as well as other values such as honesty, responsibility, respect and tolerance. Our ability to act and react with autonomy and on our own responsibility makes us a fast-responding and dependable partner for our customers.

Fiscal 2020 was dominated by the global corona pandemic. Through responsive adjustments to business processes and consistent digitization of sales and marketing activities, we were able to maintain contact with customers and acquire numerous orders for the Group. The Installation Services business won over customers in Europe with its tailored hygiene concepts and supported them in converting petrochemical plants despite the pandemic situation.

Company Performance


Sales in 2020 were down by around 10 million euros compared with the previous year, but in view of the global economic conditions we were still 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 €177,369k.
