Stephan Schmidt Group wins Innovation Award


Stephan Schmidt Group, one of the world’s leading producers of specialty clays and mineral products for the ceramic industry, has been honoured for the third time with the Innovation Award for the Raw Materials Industry of Rhineland Palatinate.

The award recognises the group’s reliability and decades of experience in research and development in the field of raw materials, which are quarried in its own extensive deposits (with decades of guaranteed reserves) and prepared in facilities and laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

For each individual type of product (tiles, sanitaryware, bricks and roof tiles, mineral products), the group has highly-trained Product Group Managers who are able to analyse production processes together with the customer and develop tailor-made solutions. Transport is carried out by road, rail and sea.

Stephan Schmidt has redesigned its website this year, adding numerous videos and photo galleries illustrating the various stages of the extraction and production processes.
