The company

The success story of SCHOCH EDELSTAHL began on August 1, 1964 in the cellar of Berthold Schoch's home. 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 production and machining of standard parts for stainless steel pipe connections, he quickly gained a brilliant reputation. In the flourishing market of metal processing, the name Schoch has secured a firm place for itself in the course of almost 60 years and with the passing of the baton to the next generation, the course is set for the future.


It all began in 1964 in the cellar of the Schoch family home in Hausach. The family business, located in the Black Forest, already focused on the machining of stainless steel at that time. The classic contract work such as sawing, turning, drilling, milling and thread cutting was carried out.


About 10 years later, the first own production hall was built to expand the capacities. 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 tees were imported from Japan for the first time.
Berthold Schoch thus managed 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.
Already five years later the office building was extended to
create several new workplaces.

Angelika Schoch took over the 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 the company as an additional shareholder. In 2009, daughter Nora Röttele followed in the management.


In production, too, the course was set for the future. 2007 was the starting signal for the establishment of a CNC production. At that time, the machinery consisted of two Mori Seiki lathes and a milling machine. In addition, a large raw material warehouse was built up to ensure short delivery times and stable prices.


In 2010, the older office building was extended by the new building. There, more than 25 modern office workplaces have been set up on a total area of 670 m².

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