Facts + Figures 2019

Schmidt + Clemens Group 2019

As everyone knows, the political and economic environment within which we had to operate in the 2019 financial year was difficult. Nevertheless, the S+C Group once again closed the year with a satisfactorily positive overall result. The new perspectives opened up in the Installation Services division proved worthwhile, with a major contract booked in 2018 in the Near East being successfully completed. After making allowance for the lower margins that are now available as compared to previous years and also the lower levels of capacity utilization of the plants due to the worldwide sanction policies, the results achieved by S+C can in fact be rated as good.

Factors that have contributed to this have been the continued uncompromising implementation of the strategic goals as formulated, the improvements in the production processes thanks to the transparency provided by the process data, the rational and reasonable cost savings, the quality improvements, and not least the far-sighted personnel policy.


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.

Policies at S+C

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.

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.

Achieving this has prompted us to introduce an environmental management system and to define our environmental policy more concretely with the following guiding principles:


Guiding principles in our environmental policy and commitment

  • Compliance with environmental regulations that apply to us.
  • Development of environmental objectives.
  • Defining and carrying out environmental programmes.
  • Aligning our environmental protection activities primarily to avoiding or reducing environmental pollution.
  • New plants, processes and materials must be tested in advance for their environmental friendliness.
  • Our employees' sense of responsibility for the environment must be encouraged by specific information and training.
  • Outside firms performing work on our premises in Kaiserau, and our tenants as well, must be put under an obligation to apply our environmental protection standards.
  • We should also strive to encourage strong emphasis on environmental protection on the part of our suppliers.
  • For newly developed products, our customers must be informed about those aspects that are relevant for the environment and about options for recycling.
  • Open dialogue must be conducted with the public and with public authorities.
  • Our environmental management system must be regularly tested with standardised procedures to see that it is applied and meets the requirements.
