The Schmelzer Group with its headquarters in the north Bavarian town Waldershof currently has 250 employees, under which are 10% trainees. Founded in 1913 by Ambros Schmelzer as a tinsmith the company is now being managed by the third generation of the Schmelzer family. Over the years, we have been able to strengthen and expand our field of activity continually including the industrial field of piping and plant construction, agricultural technology with solutions for grain ventilation and storage as well as modular pipe systems, moulding technology, metal-roofing and also garden accessories.
In the sector of plant engineering custom-fit projects for chimneys, cyclones, furnace constructions as well as filters can be realized. Besides the client-specific manufacturing we can also offer the design, construction as well as the final assembly. The project management tasks are carried out in our headquarters in Waldershof in close cooperation with our production site in Chodová Planá. This production site was founded in the end of the 1980s as Schmelzer s.r.o. and has been modernized by a new building in 2016. Pipe diameters of 100 to 4000 mm in a sheet thickness of 1 to 12 mm can be produced there.
First started with serial production of pipes for agricultural purposes the agricultural sector has been steadily developing and today our products for grain storage and grain ventilation are used all over the world. Particularly in the field of flat storage we offer solutions ranging from easy storage up to flexible storage systems such as our innovation telescopic ventilation pipe or dam wall silo. With our flat and silo storages in the field of storage technology and our ventilation spears, semicircular canals or underfloor ventilation and fans you find a suitable solution in our range.
Our modular pipework system makes individual pipe systems possible because all pipes and moulded parts are mutually compatible. The modular system makes it possible that existing pipe systems can be expanded as required. Our catalogue articles are generally in stock and can be quickly delivered at any time. Our portfolio includes both longitudinal and spiral welded pipes. Our pipe system impresses with our flanged edge, which makes it possible that pipe parts are precisely and closely fitting. Interruptions in the pipe could be immensely reduced. Thanks to their wear resistant plastic lining our abrasion resistant APS-pipes have longer lifetimes.
Innovative moulding technologies used in high precision injection-moulding tools are our core competences. These include in mold assembly, light guide technology, chrome and accent strips, hybrid components as well as gas injection tools. Together with our highly specialized cooperation partners our complete product portfolio includes the entire product development process beginning from the component development process to the final injection moulding product.
We still stayed true to our roots as tinsmiths. In the meantime we have been focusing on metal-roofing. From demolition over disposal to fully insulated foil roof areas we provide our customers with one-stop services. Furthermore we can manufacture balconies, handrails, tin and copper roofs as well as planters according to your wishes.
