From tradition to future




The story begins in 1915 with Heinrich Schmidt's decision to complete an apprenticeship in the future-proof steel business. Beginning ""from scratch"", he later worked as a commercial employee and authorised signatory for Felix Fiand KG in Hagen-Haspe and finally led the company as managing director. In this way, he remained associated with the industry for many decades and started his well-deserved retirement in 1968.

Gerhard Schmidt, born in 1938, gained his first experience as a trainee at the Klöckner-Hüttenwerk in Hagen-Haspe. After several years in the Klöckner Group, he moved to Eisen & Metall AG in Gelsenkirchen in 1961, where he worked for more than 30 years as an authorised sales representative. Afterwards he supported the family business with his enormous experience. In autumn 2018, at the age of 80, he started to enjoy his well deserved final retirement.

When Jochen Schmidt began training as a wholesale and export merchant in 1985, he laid the foundation for a successful future in the steel business. After further positions at Max Albrecht GmbH in Krefeld and Voss GmbH in Essen, he founded Stahlhandel in Gevelsberg in November 1993. With sound knowledge, powerful commitment and the premise of absolute customer satisfaction, he has managed the company very successfully for over 25 years. Due to its size, the company was renamed last year to Gevelsberger Stahlhandel GmbH.

With Anne-Christine Schmidt, born in 1993, the 4th generation is growing up. She has been working for Stahlhandel Gevelsberg since July 2013 and is looking forward to continue working for you. After graduating from the “Höhere Handelsschule Hagen”, Anne-Christine began her apprenticeship as a wholesale and foreign trade clerk at a steel company and successfully completed her training after two years. With commitment she adds a modern corporate structure to the company. In 2019 she successfully passed her business degree and trainer certificate. As a result, Gevelsberger Stahlhandel now also has the opportunity to introduce young people interested in this versatile profession.
