BASED IN A LOCATION WITH A RICH HISTORY AND BRIGHT FUTURE
Stolberg – where our company is based
a town with an over 800-year history and a long metalworking tradition.
From a traditional copper town …
Due to a wealth of natural resources and hydroelectric power in the Vichtbachtal valley, a major iron industry emerged in Stolberg in the 13th century. Towards the end of the 16th century, Stolberg’s master coppersmiths laid the foundation for a second heyday in the brass industry, which was to lead to a Europe-wide monopoly by the Stolberg-based brass and copper manufacturers by the 18th century.
… to a modern business location
Thanks to its central location in the three-border region of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, its close proximity to the conurbations Aachen, Cologne and the Ruhr, and its superb transport links, Stolberg is a modern and dynamic location – attractive as it is progressive. Currently one of the top international business locations, the town boasts modern infrastructure and a wealth of powerful, international companies. One such company is Schwermetall Halbzeugwerk GmbH & Co. KG, which has grown from a regional supplier into the world’s biggest producer of pre-rolled strips.
