An insight into our history.
Founder of HSD Schäfer
A century of success.
Shortly before the outbreak of World War I, the grandfather of the current owner founded the company Hugo Schäfer Apparatebauanstalt KG, which was involved in the manufacture of containers. The products were still riveted at that time.
The first products.
The company is the first in the Duisburg area to obtain permission to weld pressure vessels. The first chlorine gas tanks were welded under “powder” from fine-grained structural steels.
The next generation.
The energetic founder Hugo Schäfer retired after more than thirty years of responsible management and handed over the management of the company to his son Walter Schäfer.
to his son Walter Schäfer.
The rise from the rubble.
The company was completely bombed out twice during the Second World War. Walter Schäfer rebuilt the company and constantly expanded it.
The legacy continues.
The sons join the company.
Our company has been associated with the craft of traditional apparatus and tank construction since 1911.
