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
earned 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 started in 1964 in the basement of the Schoch family’s house in Hausach. At that time, the family business located in the Black Forest, already focused on the machining of stainless steel. The classic machining 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.

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. Only five years later, the office building was expanded to create several new workplaces.


The group photo shows Berthold and his wife Angelika Schoch with their four children Lars, David, Nora and Esther as well as the employees from production and office at that time.


11 years later, Angelika Schoch took over the company.

In 2004, her son Lars Schoch joined as another shareholder and in 2009, daughter Nora Röttele followed in the management.


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, over 25 modern office workstations have been set up on a total area of 670 m².

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