SCHMIDT Zerspanungstechnik's location offers employees many benefits

SCHMIDT Zerspanungstechnik is located in Herdorf in the district of Altenkirchen (Westerwald) in Rheinland-Pfalz. The university town of Siegen lies just 20 kilometres away and is easy to reach from Herdorf via the A 45 "Sauerlandlinie" motorway. The region is a main centre of commerce and industry: The town was once one of the mining centres in the Siegerland region and a well-developed metalworking industry still remains. It is now ranked third among the strongest industrial sites in Germany. Herdorf is part of the Siegerland economic area. Numerous medium-sized companies involved in metalworking, electrical and control engineering, and the automotive industry, as well as trade and service companies, dominate the economic make-up of the town.

Despite its economic strength, the region still manages to retain its rural charm, and its forests are a paradise for nature lovers, hikers and mountain bikers alike. In recent years, Herdorf has opened up several construction zones making attractive living in the idyllic hilly landscape possible at reasonable prices.
