Who We Are

Schmidt Industries is a business poised for the future by building on its strong heritage and placing QUALITY IN YOUR HANDS.

Originally founded by Heinz-Werner Schmidt in the 1960’s, the business introduced trusted brands like Pineware, Gedore, Wera and Reli-on onto the South African market, resulting in a world class foundry and manufacturing facility being developed in Durban, South Africa.
It rapidly developed strong associations with high quality, leading edge products, something it continues to pride itself in today.

Under new ownership, the business sees new beginnings – looking to the future and building on it’s successful, long heritage.

The owners and valued employees of SCHMIDT INDUSTRIES are excited for the future that lies ahead and are immensely proud to be producing products that will place QUALITY IN YOUR HANDS.
