Founded on 10/7/1929 in Mettmann

On 10/07/1929 August Schmits founded the August Schmits Metallwarenfabrik Mettmann, in short: “Schmits-Mettmann”. While simple pressed and stamped parts were initially produced there, August Schmits established contacts with suppliers to the automotive industry as early as 1932.

Constant growth

Order volume and machinery grew continuously, so that in 1951 a new production facility could be built at Bibelskircher Weg. The production facilities were continuously adapted to the current requirements.

Our infrastructure

Steady sales growth and increasing demands on a modern production facility have led to the construction of a factory with state-of-the-art infrastructure in 2011.
