Gregor Schmidt


As an independent family business, we deal with the processing of ores and minerals in our mineral grinding plant in Bendorf.

Our modern and efficient plant on a 35,000 sqm site is located at a central transportation hub with access to various Middle Rhine ports and is conveniently accessible by ship or truck via seaports Rotterdam and Antwerp.

The existing customer proximity in the heart of the German ceramics and refractory industry as well as a favorable connection to the industrial centers Rhine/Main, Ruhr area, Northern France and Benelux are a further advantage.


For 70 years now, H.J. Schmidt Mineraltechnik, founded in Neuwied in 1951 by Heinrich Josef Schmidt and now based in Bendorf, has been a leading supplier of mineral industrial raw materials for the refractory, ceramics and foundry industries.

With its focus on market requirements, the mineral grinding plant taken over from H.J. Schmidt in Bendorf in 1984 was consistently expanded as a specialist supplier of high-refractory raw materials and services.


We are an independent family business that has been involved in the trading and refining of industrial mineral raw materials for more than 70 years.

Our top priority is the sustainable satisfaction of our customers.Today, we offer our customers the entire range of processing technology.

Our main focus is the iron-free grinding of grains and fine flours, as well as the production of mixes.

We respond to the wishes and innovations of our customers with individual and customized solutions with high reliability. Our long-term and cooperative partnership with customers, employees and suppliers is the basis of our success. We ensure this with state-of-the-art technologies, efficient logistics and the high motivation and commitment of our long-standing employees.
