History

130 years of experience

The ori­gins of the com­pa­ny date back to 1890:
in this year Sig­mund Scherdel found­ed a wire draw­ing mill in Mark­tred­witz and ini­tial­ly pro­duced wire for the man­u­fac­ture of piano strings. Very quick­ly, it was then decid­ed to fur­ther process wire into tech­ni­cal springs. To this day, the tra­di­tion­al fam­i­ly com­pa­ny is ful­ly owned by the found­ing fam­i­ly and has earned a firm place among the Ger­man world mar­ket leaders.
