The Company

The Company

August Stockmeier started a trading company for chemical products in 1920 in Bielefeld - which is still the company  headquarters.

In the second generation Dr. Jürgen Stockmeier established the basis which has enabled the company to expand to its present size. Peter Stockmeier then introduced the third generation which resulted in the STOCKMEIER Group company network.

The STOCKMEIER Group has locations throughout Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, Great Britain, Netherlands, Poland, Russia and the USA. It has world wide connections.

Proximity to our customers means more to us than simply logistics and presence. Proximity to customers means: we are present, where our customers are and we know the demands which the market places on you. We support you with tailor made and flexible solutions.

We are growing continuously. And so, we are always present, where our customers need us. Like in the past well targeted acquisition of companies and a consequential extension of our products and our services are essential for this growth.

Besides we are fully aware of our social responsibility towards our employees. We can only achieve our high aims with well educated and motivated employees.

We take responsibility. The STOCKMEIER Group has developed a wide reaching environmental management. Work and operational safety are part and parcel of our everyday operation. We have invested in this and will continue to do so.

Additionally we are building a secure future. This means, that we are always endeavouring, according to industrial growth, to protect the environment and social security in their entirety. We are convinced that, together, this target will be reached.

It is a matter of course that we always use the most modern technology. All processes are checked by SAP. Thus, we have developed our internal quality management. And we are supremely prepared for the introduction of future requirements - the introduction of the REACH specifications.

We deliver promptly and securely. All our logistics are at the latest technical levels. This includes modern, automatic high shelve storage and also secure filling installations.

The STOCKMEIER Group benifits from a up-to-date know-how developed over many years and enlarges this knowledge thanks to the purchase of other companies in special areas.

We work with reliable supplieres throughout the world. Here we benefit from long-term, partnership-like business relationships. This ensures that our customers always receive the highest quality goods. Thanks to this continuity we can negotiate good conditions. Our customers profit from these.
