Art casting made of stainless steel. A first challenge
Clemens Schmees and Johann Unglaub, managing directors of the Pirna branch in Saxony, which was taken over in 1992, took up the challenge of casting complex works of art in 1996. Thanks to advanced foundry technology (ceramic cores) and the spatial and technical possibilities in Pirna, the medium-sized family business dared to process parts weighing several tons.
When we were confronted with the first, demanding works of art, it was not just a matter of realizing the projects, but rather of facing the challenges. We wanted to do things that others hadn’t thought of yet. It was our claim to say that we enjoy this task, it is a challenge, but one that can be solved. This is how the art division was created at Edelstahlwerke Schmees, today known as SCHMEES art. It is and was in a way a unique selling proposition that we have created for ourselves.
