Thanks to the sustainable specialization of the sales department of Stephan Schmidt Group in product groups, the customers are in direct contact with professional experts for all questions concerning raw materials. Their recommendations for body optimization are applied to regulate the desired characteristics of the customer’s products.
The sustainable and future-oriented corporate policy and the safeguarding of long-term availability of clays with constant qualities are of particular importance for the owner-managed Stephan Schmidt Group. An example confirming this consistent line of action is the 4.4 km factory road built by Stephan Schmidt KG in 2013. This large investment enabled the company to develop a new deposit, adjoining towns were noticeably relieved from heavy traffic, and CO2 emissions were considerably reduced owing to shortened transportation distances.
The company acts in a responsible way when extracting and preparing clays, thus securing the availability of special clays from the Westerwald region for the subsequent generations. All companies of Stephan Schmidt Group are DIN ISO 9001:2008 QM certified. In addition, the most important mining sites of Stephan Schmidt Group comply with EMAS III ecological standards.
