From Essingen into the world

Scholz Group poised for expansion

The Scholz Group, which includes numerous subsidiary companies and firms under the umbrella of Scholz AG, employs a total workforce of about 7,500 throughout the world. Scholz AG is managed by the owners, Oliver Scholz (Board Chairman) his father Berndt-Ulrich Scholz and the further Board members Raphael Barth, Parag-Johannes Bhatt, Dr. Rene Gissinger and Markus Schürholz. The company’s headquarter is in Essingen, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

The Scholz Group has direct interest in 50 companies and holds indirect interest in numerous subsidiaries, which are placed in 500 sites within Europe. We provide full area coverage with collection centres and recycling sites in more than 20 countries throughout Europe. Our customers include large steel works, foundries and metallurgical plants.

In Germany, Scholz Group is one of the few recycling companies which are able to provide a complete recycling system by means of a wide range of processing methods.

In facilities in Germany and Hungary, ScholzAlu Trading GmbH manufactures a variety of products from secondary scrap aluminium, such as aluminium casting alloys for the light metal industry. In addition, we operate one of Germany’s most flexible steel trading firms, Scholz Edelstahl GmbH. Due to its unique logistics and storage strategy, the firm can supply steel for forging and rolling of any grade at short notice. Scholz Industrieservice GmbH has established itself as a reliable partner for innovative service concepts for industrial firms throughout Southern Germany.

The Scholz Group is also poised for expansion outside Europe. In addition to sites in the U.S.A. and Mexico, Scholz also plans to expand its business activities to Central and South America. The recycling market in Asia and the Pacific region has developed particularly positively. With the operation of our copper smelting plant in China we have set a solid foundation for the local presence of Scholz Group. Our trading offices in Hong Kong, Peking, Shanghai and Singapore have already been established in the sector for some years. Numerous new sites in Australia underscore our intention to apply the recycling ethos of the Scholz Group to the global stage.

Our growing global commitment is a major contribution to the efficient and careful handling of resources and the protection of the environmental.

This is the basic principle which the Scholz Group stands for.
