In 1829 Johann Abraham Schmidt, who was trained in the art of making table knives, founded J.A. Schmidt & Söhne, not far from today's location in Solingen Gräfrath. The Dreiturm trademark was registered in 1856. When Johann Schmidt's son Gustavo Schmidt took over the business in 1890 production already took place in new buildings. To this day Dreiturm goods are manufactured on this very property on Wernerstrasse (Werner Street). In the 19th century the business was taken over by sons of the following generation. Today's CEO, Axel Schmidt, went into the business in 1973. He is leading J.A. Schmidt & Söhne in its 5th generation. His daughter Maike Schmidt-Gäbel has been working in the company since 2004. They are as proud of their family tradition as they are of their location and their products. Being close to tradition and the experience that has been passed on from generation to generation are an inestimable value for us.
