2017/2018 - Expansion of the company premises
In July 2017, the company moved into a new administration building with two adjacent warehouses, dispatch and production halls on Erich-Keßler-Strasse in Karlsdorf-Neuthard. The new office and warehouse complex is modernly equipped and offers sufficient space for the growing task of Hans Schröder GmbH.
2001 - Internationalisation of the company
The internationalisation of business activities will be intensified. The sales markets of France, Belgium and Luxembourg will be completely re-developed and activities in existing European markets will be further expanded.
1985 - Relocation to larger company premises
The growth of the company leads to a greater demand for storage and order picking space, which leads to the relocation within the town to Spöcker Straße. During this time, the family business is intensively developing with only two employees.
1990 - Expansion of the sales markets in Germany
After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the company continues to expand its sales activities. Hans Schröder increasingly travels to the new German states, where he personally visits, advises and supplies countless archives. He makes many new contacts and thus makes "Hans Schröder's good archive box" more and more well-known.
1997 - Relocation to Ostendstraße
Steady growth makes a new move necessary. A spacious warehouse area with attached office complex is moved into in Ostendstraße, Karlsdorf-Neuthard.
1997 - Anselm Schröder becomes shareholder and managing director
Anselm Schröder, son of company founder Hans Schröder, joins the company, which is transformed into a GmbH (limited liability company). He becomes co-partner and managing director and increasingly aligns the company's strategy to the needs of historical archives, libraries, museums and private collections.
1992 - Development of the archive box "Der Erlkönig".
The product range is constantly being adapted and expanded to meet customer requirements. The company now sells more than 100 of its own products, including well-known archive classics such as the front flap box "Der Erlkönig". A relocation of the office complex to Brühlstraße combined with the purchase of the first personal computers for modern order processing is necessary.
1980 - Development of the first archive classics
With the advertising slogan "Die Gute Archivbox von Hans Schröder - the good archival box of Hans Schröder" the company soon makes a name for itself nationwide. At this time, customers could already purchase the archive boxes "Model I/65" and "Model II/65", as well as filing clamps and transfer aids - classics that are still used in many registries and archives today.
1978 - Foundation of the company Hans Schröder GbR
After many years as a sales representative, company founder Hans Schröder and his wife began selling archive boxes and accessories for municipal administrations, registries and authorities independently in 1978. The first company headquarters with warehouse is located in the "old cigar factory" - a historic building in Karlsdorf-Neuthard, Neuthard.
