The company employs some 240 people at its headquarters in northern Dresden, close to the airport, with a further 50 working at offices in Russia, France and the UK. Since 2006, the firm has been based at a state-of-the-art complex opposite Richard Riemerschmid’s Deutsche Werkstätten building from 1909/1910. These original premises were themselves conceived as part of an innovative vision: influenced by the social reform movement of the early 20th century, company founder Karl Schmidt and his fellow directors also planned and built a garden city with homes for 1,500 people.
