Customer Benefit

The owner-operated and hence independent family enterprise Stephan Schmidt Group is one of the world's most important suppliers of special clays.

On the basis of its own clay deposits - enough to last for many decades to come - Stephan Schmidt Group offers a wide range of raw materials for the ceramic industries as well as for industrial mineral applications.

Thanks to our modern preparation facilities, we are in a position to supply you with customised products, prepared according to your requirements, in all the usual kinds of packaging and forms of delivery. Our customers enjoy the support of a qualified and competent team of specialists for all individual problems.

Way back in 1994, Stephan Schmidt Group corroborated its very high quality standards by becoming the first clay mining company to gain certification in accordance with ISO 9002 (now ISO 9001:2015). Our environmental management and our certifications according to ISO 14001:2015, ISO 50001:2011 and RHP (horticultural products) show that our way of thinking and acting is ecology oriented.
