The name Schmidt + Clemens has stood for high-quality special steel solutions for 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. Three corporate distribution companies in the USA, India and Brazil combined with over 30 commercial agencies consolidate our global presence.
Despite the difficult economic and political operating conditions, the S+C Group also succeeded in closing the financial year 2017 with a satisfactory, positive outcome. Indeed, we even saw sales revenue increase compared to the previous year, with profit rising in parallel. With the exception of Schmidt + Clemens Asia – where, for accounting reasons, a quality case turned the positive operating result into a negative one – all the plants reported a profit. Especially deserving of mention is the parent site in Lindlar-Kaiserau, which managed to even more than double the already positive result of the previous year.
The service business also progressed well, opening up new perspectives in the process. Remarkable results, especially in view of the fall in margins and level of plant capacity utilisation compared to 2016, were recorded in particular in Spain. They were achieved through consistent and ultimately successful implementation of the existing strategic goals, such as improvements in processes and the production systems, cost savings, quality improvements, and a far-sighted HR policy.

The balance sheet total increased by 6.0 % to € 178 million in the financial year. Following the completion of major, long-term investment projects, investment volume in 2017 was € 8 million, well below the previous year's level and again at a "normal level", which roughly corresponds to depreciation for the financial year. A strong turnover in the fourth quarter of 2017 led to an increase in customer receivables of € 8 million to € 57 million, which were offset by an increase in accounts payables of € 5.2 million. Liquidity developed positively, rising significantly by € 4 million to € 10 million despite a slight decline in bank liabilities.Company Performance
Consolidated sales of the S+C Group increased by 7.8 % in the past financial year. The oil price has meanwhile recovered from its lows and led, especially in the second half of the year, to a generally improved propensity to invest on the part of our customers in the petrochemicals sector.Turnover
