On 11th January 1677, Christian Schulz, a coppersmith from Bamberg, took over the workshop of his deceased master, thus laying the foundation for a company history spanning more than 347 years. In addition to household items made of copper, Christian Schulz also forged brewing kettles for the brewers in the then Prince-Bishopric of Bamberg. He became a sought-after coppersmith and one of the key figures in the guild of Bamberg coppersmiths. Christian Schulz founded a line of coppersmiths who continued his business, constantly advanced their expertise and helped shape the history of Bamberg's crafts, trades and industry over centuries. The “Stammhaus”, the Schulz family's home, workplace and living quarters, was surrounded by numerous breweries. The Schulz coppersmiths profited greatly from this location and their early specialisation in brewing technology. Over the span of 10 generations, Christian Schulz's coppersmith's workshop grew into an innovative company for comprehensive brewing technology. SCHULZ is a success story and Bamberg's oldest industrial enterprise still in existence.
