The history of the Goldschmidt Group dates back to 1847 when the company Theodor Goldschmidt AG was founded. In 1895, Prof Hans Goldschmidt invented the Thermit welding method, an aluminothermic process that enables sections of rail track to be welded together continuously. This marked the beginning of modern rail transport.
In the following years, various companies were founded around the world, giving rise to a group that today boasts 1,300 employees at 24 locations worldwide.
Certificates and approvals of the Goldschmidt companies include quality management certification according to ISO 9001:2015 and AAR M-1003, environmental management system according to ISO 14011:2015, approval by all major railway companies in more than 80 countries and approval as a Q1 supplier for Deutsche Bahn AG.
