About us

Adam Schmidt

Today the third generation, Georg and Elisabeth Dinkel (nee Schmidt), together with the fourth, their son Michael, is in charge of this successful firm.
In 1893 the merchant Adam Schmidt founded a basket manufactory. Since then growing business connections at home and abroad have brought about a positive development and enlargement of our over 100-year-old family business.
