More than 160 years of experience for the challenges of tomorrow’s world.

Laying claim to expertise gathered, applied and developed over the course of more than 160 years, SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH can truly be said to own a wealth of knowledge, which we put at our customers’ disposal every day.

The roots of SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH’s predecessor companies reach right back to the year 1842. Our passion for steel has both characterised and guided us throughout the company’s history from the very beginning right up to the present day.

The time-honoured double-barrelled company name goes back to Arthur Schmolz and Oswald Bickenbach, who founded a company in Düsseldorf in 1919 that they initially called Dörrenberg Stahl-Gesellschaft and then renamed SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH KG in 1937.

Since then SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH has grown into a global group of companies thanks to strategic acquisitions of renowned steel producers.
