Press release 29.04.2016

New SCHMEES-Design

We are driving our transition from a pure supplier of steel and stainless steel castings to a technology partner: Joint construction with significantly more vertical integration, down to the component.
We are facing up to the international competition – especially in terms of delivery times and quality.
We are focusing, by means of specialization in various sectors and improved networking – through to the customer – on strengthening our good and well-known name. SCHMEES has to be established even more clearly in the market as a brand name. Therefore, we have given our logo a modern look to increase recognition and distinctiveness.
