In over 85 years we have continued to develop. What has not changed is our claim to the highest quality.
Schmittenberg GmbH & Co. KG is a renowned family company that has developed a strong position in the market over generations. Not only the extremely high resilience of our products, our customer proximity is also a factor in our success.
We fully identify with the requirements of our clients and do everything we can to convince with economic solutions in a timely manner. Our customers around the world appreciate that. These include many regular customers with whom we have been working for decades.
You trust our performance and our know-how. And that is the motivation for us to keep developing. With great commitment and the passion to provide comprehensive customer service, each of our employees only works on one goal: always giving their best.
Many years of experience in metal forming cannot be replaced by anything.
Our company was founded in 1932 by Erich and Hildegard Schmittenberg in Wuppertal. Even then, high-quality deep-drawn parts were manufactured in large series: sleeves for customers from the surrounding traditional hand tool industry, as well as drive-in and weld-on nuts for the German automotive industry. The first VW Beetles were already running with Schmittenberg products in 1937.
Yvonne Schmittenberg, the third generation, has been running the company since 1993. As managing director, Christian Rieder is at your side.
In 1994 a subsidiary was established in Szczecin, Poland. However, the great demand for our products, which are primarily subject to documentation, required an expansion of production capacity. In 2001 a new plant was built there, which started series production in 2002. Both plants are certified according to IATF 16949 and ISO 14001.

Our goal: safety through quality.
Our work is based on a zero-defect philosophy, which we live with great passion. Our aim is never to stand still, but to constantly improve our performance and quality. From the FMEA / QVP in the project phase through constant monitoring during production to the automated, optical final inspection, the entire process is controlled by CAQ tools in order to always guarantee optimal results.
Responsibility for the environment.
An important characteristic of our company is respect for the environment and the conservation of resources. We pay attention to the greatest possible reduction of waste and hazardous substances and proper disposal. We sensitize our employees to environmental protection and train them to implement our environmental management system.
Our employees are aware of their great responsibility and are continuously educated and trained. We are proud of our committed team, which has given our company additional stability thanks to its many years of service. As an independent family company, we are able to determine our structures ourselves: We promote independent work through flat hierarchies and are thus able to react quickly and flexibly to customer requests.
