Schmitz Reinigungskugeln GmbH is a medium-sized family business that was founded by Brigitte and Günther Schmitz in 1990 in Holle, Germany. The company soon became well established in the power and seawater desalination industries thanks to Günther Schmitz’ expertise, which was based on many years’ experience in the development and use of cleaning balls for use in the online tube cleaning systems in these fields, coupled with his wife’s commercial skills and very strongly service-oriented relationship with customers.

A major milestone in the company’s development was a decision reached by Brigitte and Günther Schmitz in 1995 to join forces with Chennai-based GEA Energy Systems Private Limited India (now BGR Energy Systems India). This enabled both companies to expand their respective product portfolios in order to better serve their customers worldwide.

In 2014, after almost a quarter of a century at the helm, the founders handed over the running of the company to their daughter, Anke Leder, who had been actively involved in the business for over ten years. She is now successfully carrying on and expanding the business built up by her parents.

Despite the management change, Schmitz Reinigungskugeln GmbH’s avowed mission has remained unaltered, namely to always provide its customers with individual service and provide technical support based on many years of practical experience.

At Schmitz we place particular emphasis on FRIENDLINESS and A CUSTOMER ORIENTED APPROACH to our business dealings.
