About us

The Schmelzer Group with its headquarters in the north Bavarian town Waldershof currently has 250 employees,with 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 into our headquarters in Waldershof in close cooperation with our production site in Chodová Planá. This production site was founded 1992 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.


Our pipework system with precise flanged edge is especially made for the transport of grain and various bulk goods. Longitudinal welded pipes with foil weld offer a high shape accuracy and protection from corrosion. The modular system makes it possible,that pipe parts can be exchanged or an already existing pipe system can also be expanded as required. In case of abrasion our pipes are also available i a corrosion resistent design. These pipes are equipped with a wear resistent plastic lining. Therefore downtimes can be increased by 10 times.
