Schoeller stands for tradition.
Since it was founded at its current location in Hellenthal in 1827, Schoeller has been family-owned. However, as early as 1550 an ancestor, Joris Schoeller, had acquired initial shares in a royal ironworks in Gemünd.
Schoeller stands for innovation.
Innovation has always been the hallmark of Schoeller's entrepreneurial activities. In the mid-nineteenth century, Schoeller was a pioneer in carrying out automatic wire nail and rivet production on mainland Europe. Almost a hundred years later, in 1959, the plant in Hellenthal commenced operation of tube welding lines for manufacturing longitudinally welded stainless steel tubes in what was known as the tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding process.
The TIG process became known in the USA in 1936, but was not introduced into Germany until after the Second World War, with Schoeller again being at the forefront of this innovation. In 1965, Schoeller produced TIG-welded tubes made of austenitic Cr-Ni steels with a weld seam factor of 1.0. This put the weld seam on a par with the basic material and Schoeller in the forefront again as a pioneer.
