Röhr + Stolberg: Expertise made in Germany

The foundations were laid in 1872 when the company Gustav Röhr was established. Since then, Krefeld has been the home of high-grade lead products for a wide variety of applications.

Today’s Röhr + Stolberg GmbH is the result of a merger in 1986 between two companies with a long tradition: the family-owned Bleiwerk Röhr GmbH and the lead processing division of Metalon Stolberg GmbH. The latter grew with the development of the centuries-old lead and zinc industry in the city of Stolberg.

All divisions of the company, from administration and product development to production, have been located in Krefeld since 2000. This close proximity of the divisions guarantees fast service and extremely effective quality assurance.

Since 1989 the company has been part of the Calder Group Ltd, based in Chester, England. The group is one of the foremost European enterprises in the field of lead processing and industrial engineering, with subsidiaries in Germany, England, Ireland, France and the Netherlands. Röhr + Stolberg thus benefits from an international network of high-performing lead product manufacturers and engineering companies.

The company now employs around 165 people and is an established supplier to both the construction industry as well as for industrial applications and research. Product innovations such as Venusblei and X-Ready, the highest quality standards, personal service and a responsible approach to lead handling form our guiding principles.

With the aid of modern, certified production processes Röhr + Stolberg is capable of processing over 30,000 tonnes of lead per year. 50% of this is exported.
