Precision Technology With Tradition
Schroeder Valves is a 120 year old family owned and operated company. Our history dates back to 1889, when Heinrich Schroeder established H. Schroeder & Co. GmbH & Co. KG in Gummersbach, a rural community east of Cologne. Until the end of World War II the company manufactured agricultural equipment. In 1950 we started to design and produce protective pump fittings.
In subsequent decades, we expanded and optimized our portfolio with several new developments. Throughout its history Schroeder remained family owned and operated, with Axel Muecher taking over the leadership in 2005 after the retirement of his father.
Under Axel Muecher’s leadership, Schroeder successfully pursued international expansion and grew rapidly. In 2010, Schroeder opened its doors to a new state-of-the-art factory which doubled its operating capacity. The new headquarters allow Schroeder Valves to effectively respond to the growing global demand for its products.
