The Company

The success story of SCHOCH EDELSTAHL began on August 1, 1964 in the basement of Berthold Schoch's house. Equipped with an extra portion of pioneering spirit, the company founder set up a turning shop and took on various contract work. The foundation stone was laid. By specializing in the manufacture and machining of standard parts for stainless steel pipe connections, he quickly gained an excellent reputation. Over the course of almost 60 years, the Schoch name has secured itself a firm place in the flourishing metalworking market and with the passing of the baton to the next generation, the course has been set for the future.


It all began in 1964 in the cellar of the Schoch family home in Hausach. At this time, the family business from the Black Forest was already concentrating on the processing of stainless steel. Classic contract work such as sawing, turning, drilling, milling and thread cutting was carried out.


Around 10 years later, the first in-house production hall was built to expand capacity. The new production hall created space for a warehouse and an expansion of the machinery.


Six years later, flanges and threaded fittings such as sockets, elbows and T-pieces were imported from Japan for the first time.
This enabled Berthold Schoch to serve the market not only as a manufacturer, but also as a distributor of stainless steel products.


In 1983, a new office building, warehouse and production hall were built.
Just five years later, the office building was extended to
create several new workplaces.

Angelika Schoch took over Company shortly before the turn of the millennium. In the years that followed, the generational change took shape. In 2004, her son Lars Schoch joined Company as a further partner. In 2009, her daughter Nora Röttele joined the management team.


The course was also set for the future in production. In 2007, the go-ahead was given for the establishment of CNC production. The machinery at that time consisted of two Mori Seiki lathes and a milling machine. A large raw material warehouse was also built to ensure short delivery times and stable prices.


In 2010, the older office building was extended by the new building. Over 25 modern office workstations have been set up there on a total area of 670 m².

After almost 60 years of experience, quality and expertise in the field of metal processing, Schoch Edelstahl now employs almost 50 people.
